The Ergon* Fellowship is a ten month programme designed to equip workplace disciples, to realise a deeper biblical understanding of their paid work. The aim is to establish a small Christ-centred community whose understanding of God's word and mission for those in paid employment will transform their experience and impact as kingdom professionals. It is designed for those in the first third of their career (we expect candidates to be aged between 25-35 with at least two years employement experience).
As well as benefiting from a work focused discipleship within a small group context, each member of the Fellowship is paired with an experienced mentor and receives teaching from an expectational range of leaders including Hugh Palmer, Chris Wright, Rico Tice, Jenny Brown, David Turner, Anthony Billington, and John Wyatt.
