6.30 Leadership 2019 – Calling Christian Leaders

For the last three years we have run a short leadership course called 6.30 leadership – the name derives from the fact that the course happens at 6.30 in the morning.

City Group Leaders Training – 4 Nov

As a church grows bigger it must grow smaller! In other words as the number of people in a church increases, the number of smaller contexts for people to connect must increase too, otherwise a church can feel like a place you attend once a week where you sit next to strangers. A church is […]

Is Church still relevant in and to Dublin?

Four years ago (January 2012) Leanne and I visited Dublin for a week to try and help us answer the question “should we come to Dublin to start a church?” It was an amazing visit and became a clinching experience as to why we decided to come, which we haven’t regretted one bit! During that visit I think we […]
