Forge training: being missional where we live, work and play

Forge trains ordinary people to become missional. It might be in pioneering new things, church planting, working in and through an already existing church, or serving in a local community, professional or relational network. We have three intensive weekends spread over the year with five coaching sessions.

We hope you will both consider taking part and passing on this information to those who may benefit.

We now have three years of experience in leading this missional training and have seen the direct benefit in participants and in us! We have a solid team of practitioners who deliver content and provide coaching. We’ve had multiple ethnicities, contexts, and church traditions represented, and this has added a vibrancy to the training, conversations, and coaching. I’m so glad to lead this missional training!  We are expecting next year’s group to be the best yet and don’t want you to miss taking part.

We are limiting the group to 18 participants and advance booking is required. If you have an interest in taking part or want more information, contact us at or 07939 680879.
