Equipping Workplace Disciples
The Ergon* Fellowship is a ten month programme designed to equip workplace disciples. 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.
*Ergon – from the Greek for ‘work’ or ‘worker’
Applications Now Open for 2020–21!
God’s vision for our work is far bigger than we realise and he calls us to be a part of his story.
As part of a learning community, you will discover how you are connected into God’s big story through a Bible overview and deep dives into thematic topics. A unique curriculum and dedicated course resources help you apply the Bible’s teaching to your everyday work and set career goals. Delivered over 10 months, including monthly meetings and two residential, be prepared to realise the fullness of your work.
Applications for the new year of Ergon (September 2020 to June 2021) are now open.
Ergon is currently running remotely due to the COVID-19 restrictions. While it is hoped that restrictions are lifted by September 2020, if not, Ergon will continue to run as an online course. If COVID-19 means that one of the Ergon retreats cannot take place in person, an adjustment to the cost of the Ergon course will be made accordingly.
More information about the Ergon course is below, as well as contact details for the Ergon leaders if you have any questions. The key details can also be found on our flyer. Please send your completed application form to Ross and Alice at email@example.com by Friday 19 June 2020.
What to Expect
As an Ergon Fellow you will be guided through the Bible alongside sessions on how we respond faithfully to issues like ambition, relating to our colleagues, workplace culture, rest and what is our calling.
