Reaching New People - Learn

RNP Training

Reaching New People training consists of three main components which link with the Reaching New People development cycle, Explore, Integrate and Engage. The training consist of three days (usually Saturdays) over three months, and can be completed in any order or timeframe you wish. We do, however, recommend that you do the days in order, although we know this is not always possible.

You can book on to all of our courses via Eventbrite.


This day covers two key areas:

  • At the beginning: Looking at why we need new forms of church, and the biblical, theological and missional precedence for new Christian communities.
  • Learning to listen: Offering practical tools for understanding people, and learning how to develop an empathetic culture that enables us to identify with our neighbours and local communities.

The key components of this day are:

  • Loving & Serving: Exploring what healthy missional leadership looks like and how we apply those skills to meeting the needs within our community.
  • Building Community: Covering the steps we can take to develop a generous community that reflects and models God’s Kingdom on Earth.

  • Evangelism & Discipleship: Helpful ideas on how to share the gospel of Christ and offer opportunities for people in our community to explore becoming his disciples.
  • Church taking shape and Doing it again: This covers biblical foundations and practical tools for developing and multiplying new Christian communities.
