Equipping the Church to multiply, plant and revitalise church communities

Planting new worshipping communities, pioneering a new model of church and encouraging renewal through ‘fresh expressions’ are all ways to multiply churches. CCX has decades of church multiplication experience and learning to share with you.

If church planting is our main way of reaching new people, everyone has a part to play. You may be ordained, you could be a plant team member, a prayer partner or a financial supporter. Working together, we can plant and revitalise worshipping communities in different contexts and church traditions – all are needed.

Church planting is central to the Bible’s understanding of the theology of the church and its mission. Church planting is changing and evolving. Building on biblical, traditional and historic roots, church plants grow and take on the character of the communities they reach and serve.

Today, all kinds of new churches and Christian communities are forming, from every Christian tradition and in every context. Leadership models are adapting, with church plants led by clergy and lay people, volunteers, bivocational and part-time leaders, and teams.

After two months, you’ll have shaped the first years of planting a new worshipping community, gaining an understanding of how to thrive with your planting team. It’s for leaders and core team members planning to plant something in a new place, with new people in a new way in the next six-to-nine months.
