Flourish will be running in two locations in 2018/19:

Flourish London Programme
Flourish North Programme

Flourish is a course for women who want to be more thoroughly equipped to serve. The course is designed for women (including ministry wives) who are active in a recognised role in their church involving ministry to other women.

With teaching on everything from the doctrine of God, to supporting parenting, to responding biblically to our culture, Flourish covers both in-depth theology and practical issues from ministry life.

Our teaching will stretch you, helping you grow your understanding, with opportunities to learn from the experiences of others.

Applying OT Narrative

Doctrine of God: the Trinity
