Leadership training for New Ground churches in Scotland

Let’s Grow!

We want our churches to be places of growth:
– Personal growth, as we become more like Jesus.
– Numerical growth, as people are brought into God’s kingdom.
– Geographical growth, as we reach more of Scotland with the gospel, particularly through planting more churches.

For these things to happen we need many people taking responsibility in our churches: men and women who are growing in their knowledge of God and His ways, in the skills they need to make things happen, and in their character to serve as God intends.

Grow is an ongoing training programme for anyone leading in church life. Whether you’ve just been asked to start helping with something, or you’ve been leading for decades, we believe that Grow will do you good – and those around you.
