The School of Discipleship is our home for training in discipleship and ministry, supporting the diocesan vision for ‘growing deeper’. It’s a place to strengthen the foundations of your faith, to follow Jesus in everyday life and be equipped to serve the church through training, events and resources which complement what your local church already offers. We aim to provide high quality training that is biblically-faithful and everyday-relevant, wherever you are in your journey of faith.
What is the School of Discipleship?
The School of Discipleship is not a building or place
We hold training and events in venues all over the diocese:
From our Offices in Southwell
Some of our Licensed Lay Ministry training sessions are held in Jubilee House.
Across the diocese
Our flagship discipleship programme, RealLIFE, is currently under review. Look out for more information about a refreshed programme, which will be held in different churches in Spring 2024.
The School of Discipleship is for everyone! We serve the whole diocese: those in licensed ministry, lay leaders and everybody who wants to follow Jesus and grow in faith.
For more information on the School of Discipleship, contact Revd. James Halstead.
