WHAT IS SOMA SCHOOL?
An equipping environment where missional community moves from theory to experience.
We put people in an environment to experience missional community life, to taste and see, rather than just talk theoretically about it. Every participant stays in the home of a missional community leader and sees their lives. They’re immersed in a gospel rich environment and participate in everyday mission.
Soma School equips leaders, church planters, and staff to engage in missional community life, to lead missional communities, and to lead a church of missional communities.

Soma Global Areas
Soma Global Areas is a new way to support and grow Soma churches across the world. The goal is to establish new Soma Areas. These are families of churches within different countries, so that multiple churches in a nation work together, in a more organised, sustainable and accountable way than we have so far. A Global Leadership Team has been formed, led by Brad Watson. Its role is to serve, equip and champion the emerging global areas. And then, under the umbrella of the Global Leadership Team, Area Teams are being formed in each country. An Australian Area Team has now been formed, and its role is to help strengthen, care for, and establish a healthy family of Soma churches here in Australia.
We want every man, woman, and child in Australia to experience an encounter with Jesus Christ in both word and deed in the everyday. We believe missional communities are a biblical and incredibly powerful way of seeing this happen.

JESUS IS BETTER
HIS CHURCH IS MORE
HIS MISSION IS EVERYDAY
Jesus is better
We believe Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, present ascension and intercession before God the Father on our behalf, and the work he’s doing by his Spirit in our lives and in our world, and his future return to make all things new… is the greatest news and the only hope for the world!

His church is more
We believe in Missional Communities, which are a way of re-imagining church life for Australians, that is relevant to modern life. They combine a focus on gospel renewal, cultivating deeper community by practicing ‘life on life’ discipleship, and committing to ongoing gospel centred mission to specific people or groups throughout urban, suburban and rural Australia. Missional Communities aren’t everything, but they’re foundational for us. We also believe in gathering regularly as a whole church, and in eldership and having theologically trained staff, and so on.
his mission is every day
We believe in mission in the everyday stuff of life. We want to be witnesses of Jesus to the people the Holy Spirit sends us to live among, showing the Gospel by how we love them and each other, and sharing the Gospel in our willingness to give Jesus as the answer to every human longing. Jesus never sent his disciples on mission alone, so as a missional community we always work together to see the Gospel go out.
