We are launching our new young leadership year-long programme in 2020, beginning with a weekend away together on 24th-26th January at the Frontier Centre Irthlingborough. We're looking for 10-12 young leaders to commit to a year with us:
  • to develop and practice leadership skills
  • to deepen and strengthen their faith
  • to work with their church leadership to make a difference locally
  • to be supported by a mentor
  • to have fun and grow friendships with other young leaders
  • to gain a Gen2 certificate in young leadership
  • to be sent out by our Bishops to lead others
If you are interested or know someone who you think might be called to young leadership please contact us.
More details coming soon!

And finally...
