RNP Training

The Reaching New People Training Course is a practical and inspiring learning experience that will help you to develop your new worshipping communities and make disciples of Christ.

The training focuses on three main areas from the RNP Development Cycle: Explore, Integrate and Engage.

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


  • 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.

  • 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.
