The Plant Course is designed to equip and prepare church planters and their teams in the run-up to their plant. We run the Plant Course termly in London and there are new courses starting soon across the country. We’d love to support your journey of multiplying disciples and congregations.

The Plant Course is a seven-session programme designed to equip church planters and their teams in the 12 months leading up to their plant. It covers the practical aspects of church planting, such as strategy, finance, funding, communications and self-leadership. It’s ideal for churches who are ready to plant and have their bishop’s approval.

Over the seven-week course, participants receive input from experienced practitioners, explore case studies and develop their own strategies through times of reflection, discussion and sharing.

At the end of the course, the church planters present their planting vision, strategic plan, budget, and growth plans to one another and a panel of experienced clergy and other experts.

We love seeing different traditions and types of churches represented on the course and our heart is to support each team in their journey of multiplying disciples and congregations. In the long-term, we’ve found that people who are trained do a much better job than those who aren’t.

  • “Church planting can feel like a roller-coaster ride all on your own but the Church Planting Course helps you feel that you’re not alone and works through all those things that could keep you up at night. A must for anyone who has a passion to join God’s mission in bringing people to Christ and growing his church.” Steve Burston, vicar of St John’s Crawley
