Welcome to the Diocese of Worcester Training Hub for New Worshipping Communities. We are delighted to be partnering with the Gregory Centre for Church Multiplication to run a learning pathway in the Diocese to train ordinary, everyday people to establish these new worshipping communities through their Myriad programme.

Church planting is the process of beginning a new vibrant Christian community in an area that currently lacks one. Renewal projects are about bringing new life to existing congregations. 

Sometimes this is in an area of extensive new housing developments and sometimes it will bring fresh life to an existing church that is struggling. It is often a slow and difficult process that succeeds with a great deal of prayer, faith and patience. We look forward to fulfilling the Diocesan vision where 100 of these communities are formed and many new people hearing the good news of Jesus Christ.
