Long term

As your journey continues and your church grows we'll be on hand every step of the way

Church Planting Pathway

For leaders starting a new church

Every location, leader and church is different. Through the Church Planting Pathway, we'll take time to understand your context and help you create your own roadmap that sets you off on the right foot. Whether you're just thinking about planting a church or have already launched publicly, we'll be with you every step of the way.

We’ll explore the fundamentals of funding yourself as church leader, managing tithes and offerings, registering as a charity and more. Together, we'll simplify your journey and help you build strong, healthy foundations.

Tick boxes

Tailored to you

Wherever you are on your church planting journey, the Church Planting Pathway always starts in the same place; a free, no pressure chat, where we'll understand where you are at.


A road map for your church

Having understood your context and vision, we'll help you consider options and choices so you can navigate through the important stages of getting set up while avoiding the common pitfalls when it comes to governance and money issues.


We're here when you need us

If at any point on your pathway you need specific help, our team can provide guidance and services, including forming a charity, training your trustees, giving and tithing, resourcing your team, accounts examination, setting up employment contracts and helping you to pay staff easily. We even provide loans for purchasing or renovating church buildings.

Laptop and phone

Flexible and affordable

If your church is a member of a partner church planting network or denomination, there's no charge. You only pay for the services you need to subscribe to as your needs develop and change. For others, there's a low one off fee of £100 to get started with personal guidance for your church planting journey.

Brick wall

Set the right foundations

No one becomes a church leader for the love of governance, accounts and budgets. Let us support you and help strengthen the growth of your church so you can serve your congregation, make generous disciples who become faithful stewards, and grow God's kingdom together.

Frequently Asked Questions


It’s a no-pressure, no-obligation free consultation over a Zoom video call. We'll chat together to get an understanding of your context and needs, as well as a background on how you currently fund your mission. We'll then identify any areas we can help with and suggest next steps. You can then reflect on what might be a good fit. 


We are committed to partner with you for as long as you need us. Typically for church plants the first 3-4 years are the most critical time for shaping and establishing a new church.


No. We'll work with you to create an infrastructure that can help you manage finances and raise funds but we do not currently seed fund new church plants.


This service is specifically designed for new church plants within England & Wales.

There are some differences in Scotland or Northern Ireland. We cannot currently form new charities in these nations as they have independent regulatory bodies and guidance may vary, but we still add significant value to churches.


There is no requirement for you to use all of our services. It all depends on the skills, experience and resources you currently have in your church and we can help you identify what will work best for you as and when you need different elements of support.


There is no compulsion to pay for things you cannot afford. We will help you to understand your options and guide you so you can make the right decisions at the right time.
