We equip and resource the Church to reach new people, in new places, in new ways with the good news of Jesus Christ.
CCX has experience of equipping today’s churches, planters and pioneers to multiply. We’re continually adding to our knowledge from practitioners so we can share best practice and training, underpinned by theological resources.
CCX’s resources equip leaders as they develop and lead growing churches. We offer learning and coaching with some of the most experienced people in church growth, helping churches to connect with their tradition of growth and reframe this for a contemporary context. Of course, growth isn’t measured only in numbers, but in depth and impact; our growth training reflects this rounded approach.
Hope4All is an exciting initiative on an estate in the Diocese of Durham that’s using community projects to reconnect people with their parish church and transform the local area. We spoke to Kimberley Lo and Derek Bagnall to find out how this Sunderland estate is putting the local parish church back at the heart of the community.
What would our towns and cities look like if there was a Christian worshipping community on every estate? This six part online self-guided course is based on some basic biblical principles of mission, offering insight and examples of how mission can look in the estates context and encouragement to leaders everywhere to take the first steps to reach out to their local estates communities.
How can churches connect with different communities and demographics? Revd Jo McKee shares her parish’s story of planting a lay-led community in North Manchester that’s having an amazing impact in supporting the surrounding community, welcoming new people and raising up local leaders.
Helen Shannon and Ash Chafe talk about plans to launch Become, the new and improved Estates course early in 2022. Focusing on raising local leaders, at the heart of the plans is recruiting church leaders willing to host local hubs in their churches and communities, providing space to meet and learn for those coming along.
CCX helps diocesan and regional leaders to develop strategies for planting and growing churches at scale. We enable strategic planners to plant churches that are diverse in context, model and leadership, complementing existing churches in their region.
