Simple Church Foundations

The Baptist Simple Church Network would like to invite pastors, ministry leaders and small group leaders to explore opportunities to start simple churches in our community. The Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT are committed to a Gen1K vision to see 1000 healthy churches across our movement in a generation. Foundations is an opportunity to learn how you or others in your church can connect with new people and serve God in your surrounding neighbourhood.

Simple Church Foundations is a 1.5 hour online interactive seminar designed for people who have good relational skills and are passionate in connecting with people and encouraging them to follow Jesus. Simple Church Foundations will give you the essential building blocks of starting a ‘simple’ church group, and work through the theological basis for church and provide practical experiences of simple forms of church.

The workshop will be presented by local leaders with long experience in church planting and in alternative forms of church. It will include:

  • First steps – discerning God’s calling, how to get support, guidance and how to get started.
  • What ‘church’ could look like – discover how forms of church can be contextually adapted to engage with specific communities while also being consistent with a biblical understanding of church (e.g. simple church, dinner church, missional community, messy church, discipleship groups and others)
  • Essential practices for groups – explore how to pray and worship God, discuss, and learn from the bible and explore how to follow Jesus together.
  • Experiences – Common opportunities and challenges faced in starting a new (simple) church
