Welcome to Amnos Church Planting School. Thank you for your interest in the work of the School, our vision and God’s mission.
Based in the Brentwood UK, Amnos Church Planting School is a unique year-long school that runs from October-June (end). Our goal, mission and focus is to train and equip Christian believers who are called to evangelism, church planting and church growth. If you are interested in enrolling we would be keen to equip you in one, or ideally all, of these three areas.
It is important to us that each student is prepared practically and spiritually and has confidence for the task ahead. We emphasise a heart, head and hand approach (spiritual, academic and practical) in all we do.Read More
Our vision is to once more see the Good News of Jesus reaching out across Europe and the UK through: evangelism, church planting and church growth. Amnos exists to train and equip those who are called and willing. The Christian Church is growing in many countries around the world. However Europe is the only continent where the church has been experiencing rapid decline in the last seventy years. Thousands of churches have closed down in the UK alone and attendance is constantly falling!Read More
Our 1-year Course comprises three terms (October-June), and a church-based internship (July-September) at a healthy church in the UK or abroad. Students are required to be in school all day on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays during term dates. This allows students who are eligible for work to do so on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays.

Our Curriculum is designed to provide our students with practical training in three areas: Evangelism, Church Planting and Church Growth. We attempt to achieve the goal with a balanced emphasis on three areas of training: Spiritual (heart) Academic (head) and Practical (hand). We believe in church planting through evangelism, and church growth through evangelism. Therefore regular, continuous and prayerful outreach is non-negotiable. We also emphasise pastoral training as well as spiritual and character training, because effective pastoral ministry depends on the spirituality and character of a pastor.Read More
The curriculum will be delivered by various visiting lecturers as well as faculty members. We thank God for those who have already agreed to come to teach our students. Our Visiting Lecturers are excellent academic-practitioners from different continents. Between them they have a wealth of experience and knowledge in church planting and evangelism initiatives. In most cases the visiting lecturers will cover modules in 2-3 days. Their passion and heart to see the church re-established and growing in UK and Europe is inspiring. As we widen our network and partnership, we would be able to enjoy listening to more visiting lecturers in the coming years.Read More
You will need either a degree in theology from a recognised accredited course in the UK or elsewhere, or training related to Christian work, which in the view of the Principal provides an adequate basis for participation in the Course. In both cases you will need to provide evidence to satisfy the Principal that you have experience of Christian work.Read More
