Leading in Evangelism is an online resource supporting local churches to create a faith-sharing culture.
A series of 1 hour, video supported sessions that will stimulate conversation, planning and action. There are core sessions ordered into 4 themes of Exploring, Engaging, Creating and Sustaining with additional sessions. Supporting leaders to explore opportunities, engage others, create a bespoke plan for enabling evangelism that fits their church and sustain this over time by embedding it into the culture of their church.

Sessions will take around one hour to work through as a group. These could be extended, depending on how long you allow for discussions and tasks and possibly shortened.
You will notice there are numbered sessions which are the recommended order if you wish to work through all the sessions.
Each theme also contains "Going Deeper" sessions. Choose the ones that will be most helpful to you,
Joined mid-way through? You might like to return to 1.1 in the Exploring Opportunities theme and work through sequentially.

In creating a resource that spans the breadth of our tradition, there will inevitably be some things that sit well and others that don’t.
Owen Morgan explains what you can expect, what is not included and how to get the most out of it:
As you work through the content, it needn't be abstract ideas, be thinking about your gathered congregation and think about the lives throughout the week; think about children and young people; think about other ages and stages of life; think about regulars and those on the fringe, think about your wider community.
