Plant Course Autumn 2022

John Valentine and Toria Gray

St Edmund the King, Lombard Street, London EC3V 9EA

The Plant Course is about the why, what and how of starting a new worshipping community. It is for those who are doing something in a new place, with new people in a new way. The course takes a plant team on a two month journey, meeting once a week. You are led and managed by facilitators with the sessions held at set times and locations. You work through the course as part of a consistent cohort and benefit from each other’s input.


By the end of the course, each church planting team will have a clear and robust sense of:

  • What they are about (vision and values)
  • How they will deliver this on the ground (how reaching new people)

At the course’s conclusion, the church planters present their planting vision, strategic plan, budget and growth plans to one another and a panel of experienced clergy and other experts. Collaborative feedback is given.
