Suitable for church members and leaders, this training is for anybody interested in small groups – of any style or flavour:

        Those currently in groups

        Those looking at starting a new small group

        Those leading existing small groups

        Those thinking about joining a small group

Trevor Withers and Laurence Singlehurst have put the best of their 21 years of experience into these three Saturday mornings, and they will be helping you to shape the future of small groups in your church: 

  • Want to start new small groups following Alpha?
  • Are your current small groups needing a refresh?
  • Are you struggling to get small groups up and running in your church?
  • Would you like to have more small groups and are wondering how you can find people to run them?
  • Would you like to run a small group that is discipleship focused and has a missional heart beat?

The training has three mornings that are standalone but build on each other so if it is possible to come to all three this is an advantage.  We also would encourage you to come with others from your church so you can have the advantage of processing and applying what you learn in your home situation. Previous attendees have found this very helpful so we are offering a discount if you book 4 places together.
