 Leading your Church into Growth, Swanwick – June 2018

The Leading your Church into Growth Course (LYCIG) for Urban Estate Churches will take place from the 25th – 28th June 2018 at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick.

The challenges of leading estate churches into growth is especially acute. It is often hard to grow lay leaders from such communities and churches can be under-resourced.

LYCIG has always had a reputation as a resource which is effective for urban churches. The cost per place is £299 and there is a discount of £50 if a parish sends both a lay and ordained leader.
