training & coaching

a range of training workshops, presentations and coaching services

"Wellsprings Community Church had a vision to build an extension and a new entrance, to provide a community café and a more welcoming entrance. Whilst more than half of the cost was met by the congregation, there remained a shortfall, with a very tight timescale for fundraising. MPC were extremely helpful in identifying potential funders for us and advising on the wording and presentation of bid documents, with the result that over £60,000 has been raised."

Andrew Glass Treasurer, Wellsprings Community Church
