‘Leadership is not title, position or flowcharts. It is one life influencing another.’ John C Maxwell


Lead is for anyone in Hope who want to explore Christian Leadership & grow in leadership capacity. Lead runs for one year from September - June. It includes gatherings with teaching, group discussion & participation looking at Biblical Leadership. There is also an emphasis on accountability so you walk the journey with others to help each other grow in character. We are also keen to ensure everyone finds a place to serve practically, use their influence and grow in their gifts.


Leadership Academy

For those who want to take leadership training further we partner with Kings Church Edinburgh who run a Scotland training hub for New Ground Academy. Leadership Academy provides New Frontiers leadership & theological training. Academy includes 10 Friday + Saturdays per year for 2 years at Kings in Edinburgh. Several people at Hope have now completed the training and would testify to its impact.

Teams & team Leaders

We run semi regular leaders nights for our Team Leaders to help equip in leadership, vision & values. We also pray together and take time to support & listen to each other. Each of our teams get together with their team leader to equip for the role & have opportunity for team feedback.


Hope church is passionate about seeing young people become the leaders God would have them be. The intern year is an opportunity to volunteer with us part time to develop your faith, character, leadership, gifting & skills in a church environment. There is a mix of theological & practical training alongside opportunities for serving within our church teams.
