The Hub is made up of UK Churches in the North West, Midlands, Wales and Kent. We also relate to Churches in Uganda, Poland, Ukraine and other European Nations. The Hub Team is led by Richard Thomas, from HOPE Church Worcester, and Tim Simmonds, from Christ Church Manchester.

About

As well as being committed to church-planting both in the UK and overseas, we are passionate about helping churches to plant churches and grow disciples.

Training

In Worcester and Manchester we run a School of Theology. These schools aim to give a firm foundation in Biblical Theology, an understanding of how it relates to us in our day and an opportunity to grow in our own personal sense of calling. You can see more info here.

In Manchester we also run a School of Ministry. We started this school with the aim of enabling, empowering and inspiring people to understand God’s presence, to know their identity in him, and to step out out and use the gifts that he has given them. All the information about that is available here.

As well as both of these, we run an online training platform called Broadcast. We have courses on multi-site church, church planting, leadership and cross cultural mission – all of those can be found here.
 

Resources

Colin Baron, Tim Simmonds and Tom O’Toole from Christ Church Manchester have also written a book on multisite and church planting. This particularly looks at the church culture needed to become a multisite or a church planting church. Click here to find out more and pick up a copy for yourself!
