How to Grow?
Grow lay learning courses, from the Diocese of Exeter, are designed to equip God’s people in Devon to serve with joy. They are a series of tailored courses created by Lay Discipleship Project Manager, Jon Curtis, to help people develop in roles they already fulfil, for example leading worship, doing the finances, preaching, administration, pastoral care, children and youth work and more.
They are also a good way of exploring NEW roles. They will be taught online for the time being. Whatever stage you are at on your Christian journey, Grow aims to help you fulfil your God-given calling.
