Greenhouse facilitators

If you need experienced support and advice to help with establishing a new kind of church congregation, Greenhouse facilitators may be able to help.

Greenhouse facilitators help Greenhouse teams gather together twice a year so they can share wisdom and learning with each other. In doing this, they support the teams with moving on to the next stage of the Listening First Missional Journey from whatever stage they are currently at. 

They often have a role in the diocesan office, such as a Mission Enabler or Mission Adviser, but not always.

If you’d like to have a conversation with the Greenhouse Facilitator nearest to you, we can put you in touch with them.

These are the areas which currently have active Greenhouses. This list is growing all the time, so do keep checking back every month or so to see if there are any new ones.
