During this period of suspended church gatherings and house-bound isolation, CMSI wants to continue helping God's people explore their part in His mission. As such, we're offering the Discover material (the films and discussion outlines) as free downloads.
If you want us to post out any copies of the Discover book, we're happy to do so, but in the current climate, it may take us a little more time to get these to you. Simply use the online order form to let us know how many copies of the book you want - or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to donate towards the cost of postage for books or make a donation towards the other material you can do so here, now or at a later stage - but there's no obligation to do so!
If you do make use any of this material, we'd love to hear from you [email@example.com].

Discover is a discussion-based course that aims to help people explore the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of mission from a biblical perspective. It’s designed for home group settings or for a special study series – it’s often used during Lent or Advent. This is an ideal resource for churches seeking fresh approaches to teaching and discipleship.
Discover was launched in 2010. Lots of churches and small groups have used the resource since then, and the feedback has been hugely positive. Ten years on, the material is just as relevant and engaging - and the videos still look fantastic!
The Discover programme is made up of seven sessions, with each session focusing on a particular part of the biblical story of mission. The sessions dip into the stories of Adam, Eve, Abraham, Moses and Isaiah before spending time focusing on the life, ministry and death of Jesus. The resource pack comprises specially produced material that is contemporary, innovative and challenging.
The Resource Pack
The different elements of the Discover resource pack are designed to help people think about and talk about mission.
The Introduction Booklet – overview of pack; suggestions and guidance
The Session Outlines – Suggested questions and activities for each session
The DVD – Seven short, thought-provoking films that introduce the material in each session.
The Book – Seven chapters providing additional material for each session.
Discover is CMSI’s response to the many churches and individuals throughout Ireland who have expressed a desire for more, and better, mission education.
Discover is not intended as a fundraising enterprise, nor does it ‘champion’ (or even mention) CMSI. It is offered as a gift to the Church in Ireland – a resource for all who want to explore mission issues from a biblical perspective.
