The Discovery Course

Equip your church to transform your local community with our engaging and interactive Discovery Course.

What is the Discovery course?

Discovery is a creative process that aims to equip your church to reach out to those in need and share God’s love in practical ways with your local community. The course has been developed by skilled practitioners who have worked extensively in inner-city communities and also draws on Tearfund's experience of working with churches and community groups worldwide.

Discovery Course Toolkit

Our toolkit equips you to run engaging and interactive sessions with your church community as you journey through the stages of the Discovery course together. These toolkits include biblical reflections, inspirational activities to discover the needs and strengths of your community, and ideas to help your group organise and run a community project.
