Know Your Church, Know Your Neighbourhood

Newly updated for 2023, Know Your Church, Know Your Neighbourhood (KYCKYN) is a free facilitated process to help churches think about themselves in relation to the local communities they seek to serve, and make prayerful and informed decisions about their mission in those communities.

A Church In and For Community

The process gives a small group of church members the tools to reflect on how their church is seen by others, to listen to the wider community, celebrate its strengths and have a deeper understanding of its needs. Sharing their findings with the wider congregation, the church is then able to make prayerful and intentional decisions about how it wants to respond.

The course is adaptable to the needs of a church and neighbourhood, but it usually consists of five sessions of two hours, delivered over a six-month period. There are also some tasks for the group to do in between these sessions.
