Welcome to the Seeds Network website. This is an archive site to preserve some of the history, documents, songs, poems, and reflections from the Seeds Network.
The Seeds Network comprised several communities, or ‘mobs’, who gathered around conversations, connections and commitments concerning the themes of spirituality, community and mission that emerged out of the life of Urban Seed, Common Life.
We articulated the following values to express our life together:
Know the Word: (Spirituality)
We encourage each other to think and write, meditate and pray. This includes our approach to worship gatherings and bible study, developing rhythms of prayer and public conversations eg. discernment walks and seminar series.
Grow Home through Slow Food: (Community)
We seek to re-imagine the ancient vows of poverty, chastity and obedience for our lives and create a sense of shared community around an open table.
Go Engage: (Mission)
We explore ideas and practical means of teaching, healing and casting out evil in order for a group to engage in service to our local communities.
Seeds groups covenanted to discern the meaning of this charism using a Quaker-based approach of queries and advices, and defined themselves using some common ‘marks & processes’. The various groups met at an annual consecration service and a weekend retreat around the time of Pentecost.
