Equipping Workplace Disciples
The Ergon* Fellowship is a ten month programme designed to equip workplace disciples. The aim is to establish a small Christ-centred community whose understanding of God's word and mission for those in paid employment will transform their experience and impact as kingdom professionals.
*Ergon – from the Greek for ‘work’ or ‘worker’
What to Expect
As an Ergon Fellow you will be guided through the Bible alongside sessions on how we respond faithfully to issues like ambition, relating to our colleagues, workplace culture, rest and what is our calling.

“Ergon has meant I wake up with hope and am excited about what God has in store for me at work today.”
Sophia, Quantity Surveyor
“Ergon helped me invite God and my community into a deeper consideration of my working life.”
“I would recommend Ergon to anyone who feels torn between their church life and work life or feels a disconnect between the two. Ergon will help you to frame your work in light of your Christian walk.”
Italia, Youth Participation Manager
“We believe in applying the Bible to our lives. What about the other way round? What if we applied our lives - especially our working lives - to the Bible? What if I saw my daily work, my profession, my training, skills and tasks, all fitting into God’s own story - the great Bible story from creation to new creation? I would then see my work as aligned with God’s purposes, not just for me, but for society and creation. That puts a whole new biblical perspective on the world of work, and what it means to be engaged with God’s mission there. Ergon Fellowship inspires such transformative thinking. I strongly commend it.”
Chris Wright, International Ministries Director – Langham Partnership
