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.

Clergy can often find this cost from their CME budget. However, since the course is most effective when clergy bring 1 or 2 lay leaders, we’ll discount £50 if you send both a lay and ordained leader. We have limited funds, so we hope that dioceses will also subsidise costs for lay attendees.
