Multiplying Churches

Across history, reaching new people in new ways 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 are continually work with leading practitioners, adding to our knowledge so we can share best practice and training with the Church, underpinned by theological resources.

New churches will not – indeed, must not – 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’. 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.
