FellowshipFellowship Bands

In our fellowship band training, we learn how to share this way of life, and journey of growth, with a few close spiritual friends, in small groups called ‘fellowship bands’, to strengthen one another through mutual accountability and spiritual guidance. We do some of this as part of all our training sessions. Read more about fellowship bands…

Introducing Inspire


“I feel more confident in who I am as a Christian but also as a leader in Christian ministry.”

“No matter how tired I have been going to these sessions I have always come away spiritually encouraged, refreshed and enthused to continue on in God’s mission wherever I am.”

“Thanks so much for the teaching sessions this year. I found them inspirational and I love the discussion format – it really engages those present, and we learn so much more than listening to a talk. It is one of the few places that ministers get “fed” and so is very valuable to us”

“Using this format (fellowship band), and the ideas from Inspire has been the most formative and indeed inspiring ‘thing’ for want of a better word, that I have been part of for years.”
