Church resources: Releasing the power of the local church

This year, find out how you can bring life in all its fullness by releasing the power of the local church.


We are already working with 25,000 churches in some of the poorest areas of the world but we have an incredible vision to see 250,000 churches trained up through our Church and Community Transformation training.

We’d love your church to be part of this exciting goal. The Pentecost update to our resource will be ready the week beginning 6 May.

Meet Rene and Odile

Four years ago Rene and Odile from Ivory Coast were plagued by fear and worry. They worked hard to farm their land and raise their children, but struggled to make a living and could barely afford to put food on the table – let alone pay for school fees, or for medicine when their children got sick.

This story of extreme poverty can be found all over the world. Conflict is rife, climate change is forcing millions from their homes, and one in ten people are still living in extreme poverty. This is not God’s plan.

But there is an answer. Together, we can release the power of the local church. This resource is designed to give your church the opportunity to pray and give at focused times throughout the year. It would work well for your church to use this pack during Harvest, Christmas, Lent or other seasonal moments. We know every church is unique – so this resource is flexible to adapt as you choose.

From sermon notes, to videos and children’s resources, your church can get inspired by a sustainable, empowering, biblically-based, and cost-effective training that is changing communities.
