Prepare – Feed – Sustain

We are delighted to be partnering with Bristol Baptist College to offer their Prepare, Feed, Sustain (PFS) course at our Exeter Office.

This modular course is designed to help you explore your faith more deeply in the company of others who love God and to equip you to serve God in your church and community. No previous qualifications are required.

Each module has two Saturday teaching days, which run from 10am-3.30pm. You can join us onsite at the SWBA Offices in Wonford, or online via Zoom.

We are currently working on a new version of the course, which will re-launch under a new name in September 2024. Watch this space for more information!

For this reason, we are not currently accepting new Full PFS students. However, you can still join us as a Saturday student for the last module in the current format - Leading Public Worship. See below for more details.

If you have any questions about the PFS course and what it entails, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
