The Church is struggling to find its place in a postmodern, post religious society. The pastoral-liturgical identity of a RAN chaplain demonstrates how thinking differently about mission, faith, and pastoral relationships, results in a fresh expression of actively being the Church in a secular military organisation with the people located within it. Using the methodology of juxtaposition by Lathrop, the experiences of RAN chaplaincy challenges Church leaders to address how boundary ambiguity, liminality, and reframing of the gospel in local and cross cultural contexts, are essential in realising fresh expressions of Church that are meaningful to and embraced by contemporary society.
