The Acceler8 project started in June 2015 with a main aim of making many new disciples throughout Coventry Diocese. Acceler8 encourages churches through the two focuses of the Eight Essential Qualities of Healthy Growing Churches and mission and ministry to 20s and 30s. Our vision is for healthier, growing churches across the diocese which are attracting and encouraging younger congregation members. The project has been part funded by a substantial grant from the Church Commissioners.
Our team of ten 20s-30s Development Leaders work in a variety of churches across Coventry Diocese discipling young adults. Development Leaders work alongside their vicars and congregations to help churches engage with and support the younger generation in their parish. It is our hope that many people will come to faith through the Acceler8 project as churches become healthier and attract younger members.
