Mission Shaped Ministry Flexi course – (msm flexi)

This flexible version is specifically designed for teams and Lightwave groups already serving in mission together. You choose the venue, the modules you want and the order you do them in. The training is delivered using expert trainers and coaches who will also help you to teach some of the modules yourselves. 

Depending on capacity of the Lightwave team, you can start whenever you like. The course is delivered flexibly with a group from local churches at your mutually agreed dates.

If you are participating in msm flexi as part of the requirements for the Alternative Ordination Pathway, we will fit in with the deadlines prescribed by that course.


For an informal chat about whether this could be right for you or to arrange a date that works for you please contact: Archdeacon Sally Gaze,

For more details you can download the brochure for the current year (but be aware we are halfway through the year so new msm courses will be scheduled a little differently) or a list of all the MSM modules


Lightwave Small Group Leader Training

We run training for Leaders and Potential Leaders of Lightwave Groups from time to time through the year. This is a six week course where you learn how to run a Lightwave Group by being part of one for six weeks. It's an ideal hands-on way of experiencing a Lightwave Small Group for yourself while exploring and developing your leadership skills.


Check-out this page for details of the next event which will be posted as they are scheduled. 

For more details download an Introductory Leaflet for a recent course (ignore the dates!) or you can download materials for each week of the 6-week course: Lightwave Small Group Leader Training.
