We run several courses at different times throughout the year to help people grow, learn, and develop further in all that God has for them. Some courses, like Academy, are a multi-year commitment.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.
Run over eleven weeks, each session looks at a different question about faith and is designed to create conversation. It is an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
- Is there more to life than this?
- Who is Jesus? Why did he die?
- Why and how do I pray?
- Why and how do I read the Bible?
- Evil & Healing: What about evil & does God heal today?
What does Alpha look like?
Each Alpha night includes the following three things: food, a talk and great conversations.
- Food – Eat together and get to know each other
- Alpha Talk – A short video talk.
- Discussion – A conversation in small groups on the relevant topic.

Disciple is a 10-week course designed to help every Christian become a fruitful disciple. It helps you to take hold of the truth of who you are in Christ, to resolve personal and spiritual conflicts and it helps you to move on to maturity.
There will be ten evening sessions and a Saturday away day.
Each session will include a mix of teaching, small group discussion and personal ministry, so that each participant can apply the teaching to themselves and their lives.
For more information, please contact us.
The minimum entry requirement is that you are a member and committed attender of your local church. We would expect most people attending Academy to be serving in some sort of leadership capacity already and may give preference to those who are if we have more applicants than available places.
We believe that God uses ordinary men and women to do extraordinary things for him by the power of His Word and His Spirit. We encourage you to consider applying for the New Ground Academy and to allow us to develop you into the church leader or church shaper God has called you to be.
The New Ground Academy runs a two-year training course. Students begin the course in September and graduate in the July of their second year. The New Ground Academy consists of 10 training blocks a year for two years, with August and December as holiday. These blocks take place monthly on a Thursday evening and a Saturday.
A month before each training block begins, students will be sent four half-hour teaching videos to watch and some interactive notes to provoke their thinking ahead of the Thursday evening gathering. These videos lay the theological foundation for the training block and prepare the students to grow in a particular area.
