Preparing God's people to work with Him

What is The Training Ground?

The Training Ground is a two year part time course designed to help Christians of every sort both to grasp God’s word better and to share it more clearly – whether at home, at work, at church or wherever you are

Since 2015 we have run the Training Ground four times and equipped over 80 locals Christians to serve in their homes, churches and work places.

The next run through of the programme will begin on September 21st 2024 and run until June 2026.

Course Details

With God’s help we plan to run the next course again over the next two years, beginning in on September 21st 2024 and finishing in June 2026.

There will be 18 sessions per year on alternate Saturday mornings during term time, from 8.30 am to 11.00 am. The course takes place at the Welsh Chapel, 881 High Road Leytonstone E11 1HR.

Course Fees

The course costs £240 per person for the full two years. This includes not only the teaching but also textbooks, course notes for each session, tea, coffee and biscuits. Recordings and notes can be accessed on our website.

Costs can be paid in annual or termly instalments. If you want to participate but have a problem with the cost, please let us know.


Over the two year programme we cover six main topics, three in each year

First Year

Second Year

"I grew in my knowledge and love for God at Training Ground. It encouraged me to run the good race, fight the good fight, and equipped me to serve joyfully"

"Being a part of the Training Grounds was a wonderful experience and I have to thank God for the amazing training he has put on the hearts of the brothers running it."

  • "I feel that doing The Training Ground has deepened my understanding of the Bible and my relationship with God."

  • "I would definitely recommend it to others. It is a really good way of spending Saturday to learn God's word as well as having the rest of the afternoon for family and relaxing."

  • "It's a slow burn training course. Once you're into the second year, you see the value and benefit of the first year."
