The New Ground Academy launched in September 2014 and is based in London, UK, but there are also satellite training bases in Liverpool, in Scotland (Edinburgh), in France (Paris, Valence), in the Netherlands (The Hague), in Guernsey, in Brazil, and in Zimbabwe (Harare, Bulawayo). We believe that God uses ordinary men and women to do extraordinary things for him by the power of his Word and of his Spirit. We encourage you to enrol in the New Ground Academy and to allow us to partner with your local church leaders in helping you to become the Christian leader that God has called you to be.


This base is where the New Ground Academy started. Find us at the Everyday Church building in Wimbledon, SW19, which is easily accessed by both Underground and National Rail trains.

The Hague

We are stirred by the vision of seeing churches established from the North Sea all the way to the Black Sea. Being based on the North Sea coast, we see the New Ground Academy base in The Hague as a starting point for mission into Europe. Here we gather Academy participants from churches in the Netherlands (The Hague, Delft, and Maastricht), Belgium (Brussels) and more. Nine out of ten times we meet in Redeemer Church’s building, and once a year we join the Wimbledon base.
