In our member care and TCK care, how much are we influenced by our own background and ethnicity? Are there issues or circumstances that we simply don't think to ask about because they are outside of our own sphere of experience? A Black British family living in Central Asia may have a very different experience living in the community compared to their white colleagues. Do we take this into account when providing member care and TCK care? In short, do we have cultural blind spots in the member care that we provide? During this event, we'll explore this question with two guest speakers from CAPRO who have long experience of working with Nigerian and British churches together. They will cover topics such as
- Multicultural Mission Movement in the changing face of the Great Commission
- Understanding and meeting the Member Care Needs of mission workers and families coming into the UK.
We will also hear from members of our mission community from different cultures (including Latin America), reflecting on their personal experience of member care, and some of the things that would be helpful for them in the future. Time for discussion and reflection is included in the day.
The event will start at 10:00am (waiting room open from 9:50am) and we will finish at 1:00pm.
The cost is £15 to people from GC member agencies and churches, and for students. Cost for non-members is £45. If you are not sure if your church or organisation is a member of GC, please check with them to confirm or see if they feature on our List of Members page.
