New CCX Estates Course – Become

CCX (The Gregory Centre for Church Multiplication) are passionate about raising leaders from estates and are excited to be launching a new course in September that helps do just that: ‘Become’. The course builds on the success and lessons learned from the ‘Estates Course’ that was piloted throughout 2020/21.

‘Become’ is an accessible theology and leadership course with a creative, interactive approach to teaching. It is designed to equip those living on social housing estates and similar areas with the tools and training needed to serve their communities or estate churches, or play their part in church planting. The course is a hybrid of teaching videos, activities and discussions; and is delivered over 18 sessions through Local Hubs.

Local Hubs are gatherings of 6-12 ‘Become’ students meeting in different venues across the UK. Each Local Hub meets every month, journeying together as they discover more about God, each other and themselves.

CCX are looking for Local Hub Leaders, they will give you the support throughout the entire course, and provide you with the training and resources you need. Local Hub Leaders will be asked to:

  • gather a small team to help run the course
  • provide a welcoming environment to host the students, including refreshments
  • facilitate worship
  • help each student plan and deliver at least one ‘Thought for the Day’ and one ‘Creative Prayer’ activity during the course
  • ensure each student is connected with an appropriate Learning Mentor, and is regularly meeting with them

You will also need a projector (or similar) and PA (if needed) for each session.

If you would like to become a Local Hub Leader or would just like to know more, please don’t hesitate to get in contact: Ash Chafe estates@ccx.org.uk or Helen Shannon helen.shannon@ccx.org.uk
