Residential Courses

Leading your Church into Growth courses take the form of an open seminar with interactive talks, practical exercises, workshops and time and space for personal reflection. Times of informal conversation provide opportunities for our team members to answer questions and to explore the profile of individual churches. Alongside hosting our national conferences, a growing number of dioceses have asked us to run tailor made events. Please contact us if you are interested in either.

The course sessions include:

  • Leadership and Vision
  • Our Focus - committing ourselves to growth
  • Our Plan - Developing a strategy for growth
  • Our Culture - Developing a community of invitation, welcome and hospitality
  • Managing Change and Mission Action Planning
  • Our Calling - Sharing our story and helping people meet Jesus
  • Our Journey - Growing deeper as disciples of Jesus
  • Our Heart - Developing worship that helps the Church to Grow
  • Vision, fixing priorities and reviewing progress

We offer a range of workshops during the conference through which members of the team bring their personal experience and expertise of encouraging church growth in different contexts, churchmanship and settings. Some examples would be: Catholic evangelism, Multi parish benefices, rural and small churches, evangelism to specific people groups and Fresh Expressions.
