One of the key ways in which gospel growth will happen in the North West is by the planting of new churches and the revitalisation of dying congregations.

The church planting team of the NWGP has two aims:

  • To identify areas of the region where there is a need for more gospel centred churches and encourage church planting in those places.
  • To develop and support a culture of church planting amongst NWGP member churches.

Training has been developed by one of our partner churches, specifically aimed at church planters. Please click to the link to find out more: Incubator
