Attendees are invited from churches of any denomination across the region who are interested in finding out more about how their church and community might benefit from the research and resources. Contributors will include the Bishop of Lynn, the Rt Revd Jane Steen and the Bishop of Thetford, the Rt Revd Ian Bishop as well as members of the CUF team who have developed Growing Good, and leaders of local churches.
The Growing Good workshop will be held on 12 February 2024, at St Luke’s Church on Aylsham Road in Norwich. It will start at 1pm with a free buffet lunch and finish at 4pm. Booking is essential.
Growing Good is a community of people and churches who are committed to growing fruitful churches and flourishing communities. To support the Growing Good movement, CUF has developed the Growing Good Toolkit. This includes a six-module course to help churches connect the dots between social action, discipleship, and growth. The toolkit combines biblical reflection and practical insight to equip churches to grow in faithfulness and fruitfulness.
The toolkit is based on three years of research by Theos and CUF. The research looked at over 60 churches all across England, to better understand how social action, discipleship, and growth fit together on the ground. In developing the toolkit content, CUF involved church leaders, ministry training coordinators, and community workers.
Polly Taylor, Project Manager at CUF says “The Growing Good Toolkit is for local churches who are committed to holistic growth and want to integrate social action, discipleship, and growth. The toolkit can be used by churches of all traditions. Whether your church is big or small, urban or rural, well-established or brand new, we believe this resource is relevant for you and your community.”
Anna Heydon from Imagine Norfolk Together says “this is a great opportunity to learn more about Growing Good and how it can help us as we seek to impact our churches and communities with the love of Jesus.”
