Welcome to the online home of the

Building Church

The Building Church Academy exists to add value to local churches by working in partnership with them to better equip their local church builders.

We aim to help them grow as individuals, deepen their theological beliefs, and gain practical church-building skills.

Before the pandemic we successfully ran our Building Church Dynamics course from a location in the Northwest of England and churches sent their people to us. But in this new season we are working with churches in their setting – we come to you.

The goal is to help local churches train and equip their people through bespoke, locally developed and delivered courses, that best serve their mission and culture.

Thanks for browsing our site and we look forward to meeting you soon!
