Lay-led Planting

Myriad inspires and serves everyday people to form new church communities

Our aim is to support the planting of thousands of new, predominantly lay-led churches throughout the Church of England and church in England in the next ten years, partnering with other church networks to inspire similar movement and witness the re-evangelisation of our nation.

We are for everyday people and leaders who are pursuing the mission of God and seeking to plant churches in their context. We want to resource training and support, bring together the learning from different networks and act as a catalyst and thought partner for dioceses and national church leaders to inspire change within the Church.

We’re inviting you to join us in this exciting adventure of faith. We don’t have all the answers but we are gripped by the call of God to his Church and excited to explore what it means to be a mixed ecology church, which is Christ-centred and Jesus-shaped.

We are offering lay church planters the opportunity to journey together on a learning pathway, designed to equip them over two and a half years with the tools needed to plant and establish new church communities.

Get involved with Myriad Prayer

Our hope is to see England impacted through the ministry of the Church; a Church that is growing and planting thousands of church plants which reflect the diversity of their communities and their leader’s calling. This can only be realised through the work of the Spirit who renews and empowers the Church “to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ afresh in each generation”.

Myriad, therefore, has at its heart, a call to prayer – a call to pray for the re-evangelisation of the nation through the Church. Prayer is at the centre of our team rhythms, and the support we provide to church planters through our resources and training to ensure that the work of Myriad flows from, is energised by and is facilitated through prayer.
