Bringing faith and enterprise together
We partnered with the Church Mission Society (CMS) and Pickwell Manor to create Make Good as part of the Pioneer Mission training course.
The 5 day course is delivered in the stunning grounds of Pickwell Manor, located on the North Devon coastline. Experienced entrepreneurs and business experts are on hand to teach and encourage participants with their ideas. Participants leave with a plan of action for taking your big idea from dream to reality.
Some of the projects that have received the Make Good treatment are:
- Clean for Good – An ethical cleaning company
- Orts – A craft project supporting sex-workers
- Paint Pots and Coffee Cups – Creating a community of Oxford Artists
- Others include a biogas project in India, an afterschool club, a bike repair project, a retreat centre plus many more.
What past participants have said about the course:
“Life changing, brilliant, dynamic, great networking, a place where dreams come to life.”
“It was a great week helping me think about what we do in both the general and the specific. A really practical module, well presented, with great people. You really pushed us to wrestle with what we are doing and why – and how to make it happen. The content and process was superb – and being away created space to think about it so that when I returned home I could immediately put stuff into action. I can’t say it loudly enough how valuable it was.”
