Course Information
Equipping and strengthening those engaged in ministry to women

Designed for women who are serving their local church in ministry to women, to encourage and further prepare them for spiritually effective service. 

Teaching combines in-depth theological study with practical training on how to apply it to real-life situations that women in ministry face.

The course includes study of Old and New Testaments and Doctrine alongside practical issues such as evangelism, engaging with culture in a Biblical way, pastoral care in hurt and conflict, helping women to grow spiritually and supporting them in singleness, marriage, and parenting.  Taught sessions are directly applied to each individual’s situation through discussions with their mentor.  Our students greatly value the relationships with other women in ministry that they develop through the course, whether their tutors and mentors or fellow students.   There are no exams or essays to write, however set pre-reading helps maximise the benefit of the lectures.

The first year is a stand-alone course, but many women choose to add a second year to focus on additional areas of ministry in greater depth.

The programme is delivered at two locations, London Seminary in London and at Arnold Road Evangelical Church in Nottingham

There is an opportunity to join by Zoom where attending isn’t possible.

We strongly believe that you will get the greatest benefit from the Flourish courses by attending in person. However, Flourish will also be available for participants to access individually by Zoom if required. The cost for the course will remain the same however you access it.
