Multiplying Churches

Across history, planting new churches has been the norm for Christians. In the 21st century, CCX is here to support you to plant in the way God is calling you.

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.

New churches won’t – indeed, mustn’t – look exactly like existing churches. The diversity of church contexts, structures and leadership models can be the strength of the Church, reflecting the diversity of our nation.

Established and newly planted churches ‘being church’ together is known as ‘mixed ecologies’ and it’s part of the Church of England’s national vision. It means anybody, anywhere, can find a church where they feel at home and it complements the parish structure.
