Plant is a course from London Seminary that brings church planters together – to meet, think and discuss, to learn, ask and share.

Covering everything from casting a vision to avoiding common mistakes, Plant equips men to start and grow healthy churches.

Our course leaders bring a wealth of experience and knowledge, applying solid theological principles to church planting’s big questions – why, what and who; where, when and how.
