Hi and welcome to the All Saints Myriad Hub (ASMH)

Marcus Giddy – Hub Leader

We are excited to partner with Myriad, part of the Gregory Centre for Church Multiplication (CCX) to offer an amazing opportunity for those inspired and called to lead and develop new lay-led worshipping communities in their local area.

This new hub is a fantastic resource to equip lay church planters in Essex, East London and beyond in growing small teams to develop new church communities.

Over two and half years, the All Saints Myriad Hub will provide you with a range of key tools to accompany you and your teams as you journey with us and seek to plant, establish and grow communities of faith in your local area.

Each lay planter will be supported by an oversight minister and this will usually be the recognised leader of the sending church (ordained if within the Church of England).

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”

Psalm 32:8

Who is the hub aimed at?

Our aim is to provide a safe space where you can grow and develop as a team.  We want to provide you and your team with some useful tools you need to form new worshipping communities. Take a look at this great video for more information.

Journey of a Lay Planter

What is being offered?

The hub offers a learning pathway with learning based on five themes:

  • vision and discernment;
  • leading and teams;
  • formation and core practices;
  • planting and discipling
  • growth and multiplication.

This programme is designed to be lightweight and can be done alongside church and a busy life. Over the two and half years, we anticipate each six months will include:

  1. attendance at one gathering (two days);
  2. engage with online learning (8-12hrs);
  3. have mentoring meetings (3-4hrs);
  4. have a supervision meeting with the hub leader (1hr).

There will also be some additional preparatory activities such as safeguarding training and online induction.

When will the hub run?

The All Saints Myriad Hub Dates are:

  • 2023:  May 19-21; Nov 17-19
  • 2024:  May 17-19; Nov 22-24
  • 2025:  May 16-18

(the format and timings of the weekend will be confirmed in due course)

​Each gathering will include eating together, worship, input, reflection and team time; reflecting on the input and working together discussing plans for your new church community.

There will also be space for social time and the development of relationships. Plus, a full day’s learning programme, ending the time together in prayer.
