Using small groups to help grow discipleship throughout a church

Church planting can be stressful, so how can leaders enable spiritual health through a whole church?

How can churches that plant churches prepare for plants, release them generously, and recover to do it again and again?

Traditional and modern catholics share their learning about different approaches to planting churches in the sacramental tradition

What is current learning and experience on best practice for planting churches on estates?

How do you train church planters? What journey do they need to go on? What content do they need? How should it be delivered?

After the first church plant, how can plants and other churches be networked together to increase their missional impact and capacity?

Missional leaders are “get on with it” type people and their needs are often overlooked. With the right coaching and support, they become more effective in their calling, avoiding burnout. How can we enable this to be the norm?

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, speaks and reflects on the important part that church planting has to play in the future of the Church of England.

Jo Saxton, author, speaker and leadership coach offers ideas and inspiration on how we take seriously Jesus’ call to make disciples today. What does that look like in our own contexts, both now and in the season to come?

Father James Mallon, founder of the Divine Renovation Ministry, shares principles from his own experience that take parishes from maintenance to mission and bring about transformation and renewal.

Winfield Bevins, Director of Church Planting at Asbury Seminary, talks about the power of rediscovering networks and their importance in making disciples, planting churches, and creating new movements.
