How are church plants developed?



The first step is to talk to an experienced leader about your ideas. Get in touch with someone in oversight to talk this through in your context. In London Diocese, consultations can be booked to progress your ideas.



The Church Planting Course helps church planters to develop their strategic plan. We’ve found that people who are trained do a much better job than those who don’t.

The Exploring Church Planting course helps people to discern whether they might be a potential church planter as well as explaining what church planting is.



It really helps to speak to someone who has done it before. We recommend coaching as a model for refining your thinking.



Church planters often need help with funding. Visit our funding page for more information about the range of options.
