Flourish will be running in two locations in 2019/20:

Flourish London at London Seminary
Flourish North at City Evangelical Church, Leeds

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.
