The Guide

Setting out on the adventure of leading a congregation or community? 

The Guide is a ground-breaking resource to equip you for the journey through engaging, practical and easy-to-access online sessions.


Who is it for? 

Leaders of Fresh Expressions, church plants, new worshipping communities, congregations – anyone leading a congregation or community who isn’t the vicar!  

In many dioceses these people are called Focal Ministers (or Focal Leaders, Recognised Local Leaders, Local Ministers or some variation of these). 

If you are leading a church or new worshipping community of any type, with responsibility for oversight of the mission and ministry of the community, you’re in.  

'Enjoyable, interesting and manageable.'

Quote from Beta-tester.  

How do I find out more? 

A free taster session, which includes an Introduction to The Guide, is now available. You can gain access to the Taster, download a leaflet about The Guide or an overview of sessions below.
