The scheme runs from September to July and involves practical placements, training and community living.  To find out more get in touch with Joanna, our director of interns, at

Church Growth Groups

Church leaders with a desire to see their communities flourish are encouraged to join one of three newly created Growth Groups, designed to create a space for mutual learning, encouragement, sharing and prayer.  Churches growing spiritually, numerically and in their mission to share the Gospel is at the heart of the vision and strategy for the Diocese of Leeds.  For each group starting in May or September, the aim is to gather leadership teams from up to twelve churches who will meet every two months to focus on one of seven key steps for growth, based on the Leading your Church into Growth (LyCiG) teaching material. To register your interest contact Robin on

Rhythm of Life Lent Course

Our Rhythm of Life Lent Course starts this week. This is a standalone course that can serve as a stepping stone for further engagement with the Rhythm of Life. There will be six sessions, with online materials, for use with Zoom. A leader’s guide will be available. Sessions will provide an opportunity to engage with the seven Rhythm of Life areas for deepening commitment: Praying, Reflecting, Encouraging, Sharing, Resting, Celebrating and Creating. Each session will be 90 minutes in length, including a 10 minute break. The framework will consist of video clips, Bible passages, discussion questions, break out groups for discussion and prayer. It is offered as a way of helping us benefit more fully from the Rhythms of God’s grace in our current circumstances.  Find out more here and how to join the diocesan led course if your church is not running one already.
