The work of Press Go is all about giving churches hope for a new beginning; a fresh start in the work of God's kingdom. When missional imaginings come into being people experience the presence of God, new disciples are made and fresh life resonates within the church. (Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.")
Press Go is how we collectively fund promising mission and growth ideas. It was approved by General Assembly 2008, with the criteria for funding projects finalised after further consultation with presbyteries.
