Our course for church leaders

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.

Inspirational and challenging. Focussed on Jesus, based on prayer. The worship has been so uplifting.

What does the course cover?

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.

  • Going for growth: Context, leadership & vision
