Grow

Grow weekends are part of our investment Missional Community leaders but are open to anyone who would like to come on the journey- including leaders from other churches in the Coventry & Warwickshire area.

The weekends take place over a Friday evening and Saturday Day time- with worship, vision food & fun on the Friday, and teaching & planning on the Saturday.

Our cities, our neighbours, and our families are looking for a better picture of what life in the Kingdom is all about. Do we know how to reveal this to them and do we want the evangelistic breakthrough that leads to genuine growth?

We finish our journey with this third Grow weekend. As the foundation for discipleship and mission have been laid, in this weekend we will think about leadership in our communities, and how to grow and multiply new leaders. This experience will start with a time of reflection and accountability to the plans you created at the last weekend. This will be a time to discuss and evaluate how the process is currently going. You will leave with a six-month plan specific to your needs and progress.

We look forward to seeing you there.

GROW Weekend dates:

10th-11th June 2016: Growing in Gospel Confidence
13th-14th January 2017: Growing Missional Communities
12th-13th May 2017: Growing Community Leaders

Resources from Weekend 1:

Growing in Gospel Confidence is about coming back to our place in God’s story, thinking about who he has made us to be and looking at our identity as a family of missionary servants, sent to make disciples who make disciples.

LISTEN BACK TO THE TALKS HERE:

We spent quite a lot of time talking about story- and had a go at going through the first part of The Story of God. The Story-formed Way was designed to both lead people through the basics of the Gospel and provide a foundational structure for the key doctrines of Christianity. If you are taking a mixed group of believers and unbelievers through it you will better establish the believers in the foundations and show them how to have Gospel conversations with Unbelievers. At the same time, the unbelievers are exposed to the Gospel and will learn how to share it themselves once they come to faith.

If you are interested in continuing this as a community (remember it’s always better to do this with some non-believers- not just with Christians), you can get access to all the resources for free- including a version for kids, training for the leader:
