Foundation Learning Site


Who is it for?

Leaders, future leaders, and anyone who wants to grow in the knowledge of God, ourselves and His mission in our world.


Site Leaders:

From Left to Right:

Mike Tindall is the lead pastor of Grace Church . Grace Church is an international family church that meets in Moss Side on Sundays and in homes around urban South Manchester during the week.

Jamie Kidd is the lead pastor of Emmanuel Community Church. Emmanuel Community Church Stockport is a family church that wants to see God glorified as we meet on Sundays, throughout the week in people's homes and as we reach our communities and beyond with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Greg Willson is the lead planter of Redeemer in Chorlton. Redeemer is a church that loves Jesus, loves people, and helps cultivate the culture in Chorlton.


Why join the learning site?

To understand God’s truths and how they apply in our world, specifically how to apply them in our own churches. God wants us to know more about Him, and in turn, that strengthens not only our churches, but our own personal joy in the faith.


How it works:

The course will run from September to May and is designed to be as flexible as possible whilst also learning together in community. We’ve combined self-directed study (1-2 hours per week) with larger conference days. For the self-directed study, each student will have access to study materials, videos, exercises, and reflections online through the Crosslands website. At the beginning and ending of each module all the students in our learning site will gather together on conference days to discuss in more depth with each other what we’ve learned.
