For church leaders looking to build, innovate & thrive
Over the last season we have been hosting virtual round tables for church leaders. The content from these roundtables can be found below:
A bit of context…
Andy Frost and Mark Waterfield have been leading church leader roundtables since 2012.They have been happening around the UK with regular ones in London. They were birthed out of a relationship with Claude Thomas who is now part of the team at Keystone Church.
These roundtables gather church leaders from different denominations and streams to share together, support each other and push each other to fulfil the vision God has given us to reach the UK. In 2019 we brought many of these roundtable groups together for the first Ekklesia Conference.
Since September 2020, we have been hosting virtual roundtables. Our first session explored how we gather as the church during a pandemic. You can check out some of the content here that provoked conversation in smaller groups.
The roundtables have been a space to pool resources to maximise our mission. For example, in London, church leaders have worked collaboratively on sermon series such as ‘What would Jesus say to…’ exploring how Christ would interact with celebrities from todays culture.
‘I love the Roundtables because they facilitate candid & practical conversations that can and will help your church grow, if applied.’

‘This is a great forum for leaders to learn and grow together. It has been encouraging to see leaders developing ideas together that impact both local congregations and communities across London.’
Sarah Grimshaw | Methodist Circuit
‘I have found the Roundtables a very useful stream of creative ideas for church leadership. The content has been practical and challenging. As a local church we’ve benefited hugely from the shared preaching series in the last 2 years, with it’s creative promotional material and collaborative preparation of messages.’
Andrew Holmes | Every Nation London
The Roundtable sessions provide teaching input and the opportunity to meet and share with other church leaders. I have found it a great place to bounce ideas around and learn from others. It is a blessing and encouragement for me, and my church has been strengthened as I have take back ideas and implemented them’
