For most church communities affording niche ministry (or larger ministry programs, like camps) just is not feasible. Though even one or two young people still need to be spiritually nurtured.
In 2015 Ps Kelly Skilton responded to the prompting of Holy Spirit and began the missional community of The Sonder Collective. Fast forward a few years and we see Murrumbeena Uniting financially backing this missional community.
This missional community runs by gifting resources so individuals, and congregations, can be uplifted just as they are. It's a new kind of ministry where we commit to doing a portion of it together.
Together we run bible studies across our four regions, and we facilitate camps during the year where we are all able to gather together:
• State Youth Games
• Sonder Youth Camp
• Sonder Young Adults Getaway
At the end of 2019 there are 170 people, across 35+ church communities, gathering together from 7 denominations. The Sonder Collective is an ecumenical and intentionally collaborative ministry. The leadership is brought together across our churches so we are able to give leadership to those that cannot alone. Youth and young adults are given an ability to enjoy peers and programs that they have missed previously. The collective community allows a depth of christian thought and theology. By uplifting each home church, we are able to maintain our autonomy, maintain our pastoral care for each individual, but still can offer specified age-based ministry programs across our churches.
