Rooted is the EMBA’s commitment to equip ministers and leaders for contemporary ministry and to help churches engage in mission and ministry in our ever-changing world. 

Themed days (usually three) are held each year that provide an opportunity to reflect theologically and practically on a particular aspect of ministry.  The day is broadly aimed at either Ministers and Pastors (Rooted for Ministers), wider church leadership teams, including ministers and pastors (Rooted for Leaders), or open to anyone connected to our churches (Rooted for Everyone).

The days are participative and delivered by experienced and knowledgeable speakers. Themes explored so far include creative discipleship, understanding cultural change, and engaging missionally with new housing estates. Further sessions are always being planned and developed and will be displayed on this page.

All sessions are delivered free of charge to EMBA churches, although donations are always welcome to offset costs. We are always happy to receive suggestions for topics or themes to be explored.

Our last event was held on 14th April 2021, Mission Outside the Church walls with Speaker Revd Peter Dunn (European Director from Biglife Ministries & YBA Mission Enabler) You can watch the recording here
