The Growing Good Toolkit

The Growing Good Toolkit is a FREE six session course helping churches explore the connection between social action, discipleship and growth. Through reflection discussion, film and prayer we explore how our churches can be faithful and fruitful in our local communities. You can use the sessions online or in person.

Sign up today or read on to find out more about the Growing Good sessions.

1: Presence

Being seen and known for doing good.

Consider how your church can be an active and visible presence in your community, and hear from an inner city church that has become a beacon of hope in its local community.

2: Perseverance

Being faithful in the long-term.

Explore the value of investing in communities, even when it's hard and slow, and find out how one church has invested in local schools over the long-term, and seen fruit.

3: Hospitality

Building a culture of giving and receiving.

Discuss the importance of offering a welcome that goes beyond offering food, and learn how a church worked with its local community to start a vibrant café and build relationships.

4: Adaptability

Being open to challenge and change.

Explore how being open to doing things differently can encourage new growth and find out how one church has adapted their worship to involve people of different ages, cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds.

5: Participation

Inviting everyone to be part of what’s going on.

Consider how participation in social action can be a way for people to become part of the life of your church and hear what this meant for one family after they had a faced a difficult time.

6: Next Steps

Reflect on the things you have learned from the Growing Good sessions and the practical next steps you might take individually and as a church
