Flourish will be running in three locations in 2020/21:

Flourish Midlands at Emmanuel Church                                              Flourish London and Flourish Two at London Seminary
Flourish Two North at Oldham Bethel Church

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 and/or have some responsibility for ministry to women in their churches. It is not recommended for complete newcomers to ministry.

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, help you grow in your understanding, and provide opportunities to learn from the experiences of others.

Course Breakdown

Location: London: London Seminary (Flourish one and two), Midlands: Leamington Spa (Flourish one), North: Leeds (Flourish two only)

Flourish Two London and North 2020/21

Flourish Two is held at London Seminary, and simultaneously at Bethel Church, Oldham, OL4 1EQ 


We strongly believe that you will get most benefit from the course by attending in person at either London Seminary or Bethel Church, Oldham.  However, due to the uncertainties of the current COVID situation, Flourish 2 will also be available for participants to access individually by Zoom if required.  Some may decide to begin the course by Zoom and then change to attending physically as they are able to do so. The cost for the course will remain the same however you access it.

Times: 10:00 – 16:00

Cost: £520 (also please set aside an additional £50 for course materials/set-text books)

Content: In the mornings, you will take part in biblical and doctrinal study sessions. You will need to complete the set reading before each session. There will be no assignments or exams to write. 

Afternoons are focused on how to bring Christian truth to real-life ministry situations (the order of the sessions will vary depending on location).

You will also be set questions to be discussed between sessions with a mentor from your local area.

Morning Sessions

Applying Gospel Narrative

Doctrine of God: The Trinity

Afternoon Sessions

Womanhood - a Biblical Understanding

We'll consider what the Bible has to say about womanhood, comparing this with feminist and other perspectives. We'll also explore the need for self-care, to help us live godly lives and minister without burn-out.
