Baptist Union of Scotland, in partnership with Forge Scotland

Join us as we partner with Forge Scotland to offer a 12 month spare-time course for those interested in church planting.
The course takes place over 5 weekends in the year.
We explore areas including:


Spiritual Formation

Evangelism and missional engagement

Contextualisation of the gospel

Building a discipleship culture

Leadership in missional context


All of the material is taught by practitioners and is focused on the church in Scotland.

We will have a baptist cohort within the program this year, and in addition to the learning material both mentoring and coaching will be provided.

The course will help you develop your thinking, practice and plan for church planting.

If you are interested in more information, or wish to apply, please contact Glenn to begin the process:

Taster Course…

Earlier this year a taster course provided an opportunity to ask questions, consider possibilities and find out more about our new main programme. We will be running more of these in the future, prior to the new 12 month programme.

  • Session 1: Changing world, changing church
  • Session 2: Rediscovering mission
  • Session 3: Faith in Context – 21st century Scotland
  • Session 4: Creating Jesus centred communities
  • Session 5: Discipleship in community
  • Session 6: Leadership

Our year programme will provide the opportunity to explore these areas more fully, and enable you and your churches to become equipped with the knowledge and skills to support your exploration into what planting a church could look like for you.
