How does it run?

Falling Forward will follow the chapters of the Falling Forward: Pursuit of Sexual Purity workbook.

Each session includes worship, teaching & prayer / sharing in small groups.

  • Monday sessions run from 7pm to 10pm.

How can I join Falling Forward?

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost of the last Central London Falling Forward programme was £500.00 per person. This can be paid in installments if required. However, if after training you are released to run a course locally, you can decide what fee to charge and this is usually significantly less.

How do we start a local group?

Leading this course requires attendance on our Discipleship Week, being able to personally fulfil our leadership requirements and involves building and training a local team. We usually suggest that you go through the course once as a team to discover the giftings in the team and to familiarise yourselves with the material and then open it to new participants after that. We like to come and do a team training day on site!
