THE ANCHORAGE IS A PLACE OF FORMATION.
FOR YOUR ENCOUNTERS WITH JESUS,
AND YOUR PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE.
Journeying alongside people for growth; in Christ, in calling, in our identity.
The Anchorage is a collective of wholistic practitioners who have demonstrated grounded spirituality over the long haul. We do not come to the table as masters, but apprentices. We seek to craft vibrant and safe contexts for you to grow and renew. We carry our learnings, our failures and our breakthroughs with us as a living expression of faith and hope.
A context, not a destination
The Anchorage Collective began with a group of long-haul ministers dreaming of a context. One where they could be a missional community, walking with others who care deeply (or once did) about their vocation. We dreamed of crafting contexts where others could find they are not alone and be strengthened, encouraged and comforted. We are committed to the ‘iron sharpening iron’ principle in Proverbs. We are dedicated lifelong learners and reflective practitioners of our varying vocations. And some of us have ‘wicked’ sense of humour.
People who serve, people who lead, people who care.
The Anchorage is for the fired up, the burning out and the in-between. We’re not concerned about your title, but your heart in your context. Whether you are a leader seeking confidential spaces to grow or renew, or a new believer seeking soul training, our service to you is to journey skilfully and kindly alongside as you grow, heal and develop.
WHEN & HOW
Regularly and diversely
Our collective goal is not to establish a rigid, back-breaking roster of events, but a suite of bespoke contexts and opportunities to grow. Our 1:1 contexts and gatherings focus on specific ways or areas of development. Group gatherings are tailored for particular shared stages or interests. We consider intentional relating (such as supervision, mentoring and spriutal direction,) retreats and group learning (with good food of course) as part of the glue that will not only connect us, but give us the tools to equip others and establish our own lives deeply in Christ.
