What do the courses cover?

The original Leading your Church into Growth's residential course is aimed at clergy and lay leaders from across different traditions and denominations who are looking for help and encouragement in leading and growing their churches.

This is a course where the local church...

  • Learns key biblical teachings on growth
  • Discusses asks questions and applies these teachings to their own situation
  • Becomes insipred and motivated
  • Makes decisions, implements plans and new ways of working
  • Sticks with these plans, reviewing and adapting them as they go along

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.

Sessions in the course include...

  • Creating a Prayerful Culture of Growth
  • Implementing the 4Ps
  • Practising Fruitful Evangelism
  • Developing Engaging Worship
  • Becoming an Inviting and Welcoming Church
  • Make a Pathway for Seekers to become Disciples
  • Begin a Planned Journey of Growth

LyCiG Estate Church Conference

The challenges of leading a church into growth on our urban estates are especially acute but confident Christian presence in such communities is vital. This course covers much of the material on the National Course, but is tailored to the needs of lay and ordained leaders from urban estates churches.  The course will be led by people with experience of this ministry.

Leading your Evangelism into Growth

This course builds on the work of the National Course, going deeper into Proclamation, Persuasion and a greater emphasis on invitation.  You don’t need to have attended the National Course to attend this course, you just need to want to get better at helping people to find out about Jesus.

We will consider questions and themes such as...

  • What is evangelism?
  • How did Jesus and Paul do it?
  • What is the Gospel for our world today?
  • The local church and its mission field.
  • Scattering seeds using social media, publicity, and word of mouth.
  • One-to-one evangelism.
  • Setting up an evangelistic event.
  • How to give a really good evangelistic talk.
  • Running an enquirer's group that works.
