WHAT IS THE LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT YEAR?

The Leadership Development Year (LDY) is an eleven-month programme to equip, encourage and empower you to lead and live out God’s calling for your life.

WHO IS LDY FOR?

LDY is for 18-26s who want to grow in their relationship with God, in their personal and professional life, and in confidence in their leadership, who want to be built up and sent out to serve, grow and lead in the church and all areas of society.

WHEN DOES LDY RUN?

LDY runs from mid-September 2020 until the end of July 2021, with term breaks over Christmas and Easter.

Leadership: Tuesday afternoon workplace and leadership training, and personal development.

Formation: Thursday morning breakfast to feedback, encourage and pray for one another.
