The Ignite programme is a leadership training course, where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together each week to grow in their own relationship with God and be equipped with the skills needed to share the good news of Jesus with the world around them.
JMC has hosted the year-long programme for 2 years, but in September 2016 it moved to Prudhoe Methodist Church, West Road, Prudhoe. The programme is running for a 2nd year at Prudhoe in 2017-2018.
Ignite takes you on a journey to be ignited. It is all about our encounters with God – in worship, in His word, in one another and as we share what we have learned with those around us.
The Ignite programme runs over a 10 month period, with a session each week. There are three semesters, with a half term break. The evenings usually consist of a worship session, two talks, group discussion and some ministry time, with a coffee break in the middle. In addition to the small groups, which meet during the course of the evening, each Ignite student is assigned a mentor for the year. The mentor helps the student reflect on and apply the skills they are learning.
