Igniting the Church to be like Jesus and change the world

Rev ShIEla Porter

2013 SheilaShiela Porter is the Team Vicar at St George's Deal, an evangelical Anglican Church situated in the centre of Deal on the High Street.

The Church is made up of Missional Communities - groups of between 20-50 people who have a common mission vision and are each led by a small team.

They meet out in various places and the church has literally doubled in size since 10 years ago when Shiela and her colleague began to dream of a missional movement made up of radical, attractive, communities in every segment of society who would turn the nation back to Jesus. They have seen lots of growth through Alpha, but mainly because of the success of pioneering Missional Communities.

The church is also associated with St Thomas' Church in Sheffield, and Shiela is increasingly being asked to speak on this way of doing Church both in this country and now internationally.

Shiela runs Learning Communities for leaders and her passion is to multiply the work she's involved with of discipling and mobilising missional leaders.
