A life-changing 9-week programme that helps you steer your journey towards personal growth, healing, prayer ministry training and fruitful discipleship, based at Ellel Grange, Lancashire, England.
Imagine having the time to focus fully on the Lord for 9 weeks, to hear biblical teaching that is relevant to you and your life mission, and as well to receive personal prayer ministry for those blindspots and obstacles that can come between us and the fullness of God’s call on our lives.
Flagship is a well established and proven learning programme, that provides a wealth of training on how to identify issues in your own life, but to also minister effectively to others in a safe, encouraging environment. You will have opportunity to rest and recharge – away from the normal pressures of life – and to enjoy rich fellowship with people of all ages and cultures in a beautiful environment. The Flagship Programme gives you all that and more!
Jesus welcomed the people, taught them about the Kingdom of God and healed those who were in need.
Flagship is a combination of biblical teaching and training, group work, practical application, personal prayer, worship and fellowship to prepare and equip you to receive and share God’s healing love into our needy and broken world.
The Flagship Programme will take you on a journey to discover more about the Lord, what He is doing in these times and how healing and restoration are vital to the Body of Christ. As well as restoring and refreshing your own life, the teaching aims to challenge you and empower you with keys to pray for others and see the Lord bring healing to them also.
Are you looking for something new or pondering what the Lord may be calling you into? Do you want to do more for Jesus in reaching out to others but feel ill-equipped? Perhaps you are serving the Lord and need to take some time out to rest and to receive further training. Are you seeking a deeper relationship with God but feel there are things holding you back? Do you want your life to be more fruitful for the Kingdom of God?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Flagship could just be the thing you’ve been looking for! Flagship is for anyone who is serious about God and wants to move on with Him. It does not require prior training and you don’t have to be a theologian – you just need an open heart to the Lord. In fact, as many guests have told us before, Flagship is the best investment you could make in your Christian walk!
The 9 week programme is dynamic, with training sessions, tutorial groups and opportunities for practical ministry experience. You will have the opportunity to receive for yourself as you learn more about true discipleship and apply it to your own life, at the same time as being mentored in how to come alongside others, putting what you learn into practice.
Alongside the extensive input sessions, there are practical sessions.
The teaching content of the 9 week programme is designed to give you a biblical understanding of discipleship, healing and deliverance. This then opens the way for your personal release and healing, and equips you to help others. The programme includes opportunities to receive personal prayer ministry and to put into practice the principles learned. See our main teaching themes below.
A clear understanding of basic Christian theology and the nature of the spiritual battle experienced in this life are essential foundations for effective healing ministry. Topics covered include:
Understanding how we are made by God in His image, how He designed us to function as people and how to identify some of the reasons why we might experience dysfunction in our lives. This training will then help us to minister to others more effectively. Topics covered include:
The training in this section, illustrated with practical examples, explains the various ways in which God may bring healing into our lives and those we seek to help. Topics covered include:
Understanding how to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit and the skills we need to develop as we make ourselves available to be used by God to help others. Topics covered include:
Jesus calls us to preach the gospel, heal the sick, set the captives free and make disciples. This section will encourage you to step out to fulfil this challenge using all that you have learnt. Topics include:
Every year we receive wonderful testimonies of what God has done through the lives of our Flagship guests whilst with us here at Ellel Grange. Scroll below through some of our recent testimonies, or watch them share in person on the video above.
So much attention, and care, and love we received in this place. It is amazing. So, I recommend everybody, everybody, because everybody needs something here. Even though you may think 'it's not for me, I am healed, I don't need this...' I am sure you are going to receive a lot of revelations and a lot of healing here. So, thank God and everyone here at Ellel Ministries... it's amazing.

Flagship has been an amazing tool in the hand of the Lord, to bring healing and really bring me back to Him. Yea, do it, it's good... the Lord wants to come into places of emptiness I think, and that's what he really did for me.
Rachel Goodwin, United Kingdom
I would 100% recommend the Flagship programme. They make it personal here, so it's not just black and white teaching from a text book to us, but it personally relates to us, and they are really led by the Holy Spirit, and if you are thinking about just wanting to draw closer to God, wanting to understand more about who he is, wanting to understand scripture, the bible more clearly, I think this would be an incredible place to do that and if the lord leads you, this has been an incredible experience and I would definitely recommend.
Neil Fowler, United Kingdom
Flagship has by far exceeded my expectations. The teaching, I felt I never learnt so much before as I've learned in these nine weeks. There were so many areas I never thought about before. And also the fellowship and the love just of the people on staff and the other flagshippers. It's been such an encouraging environment. And also these beautiful grounds, it's just been so lovely spending time with God outside in nature. To also learn how to minister practically to others which I feel I have not really learnt in this hands on way before. It has been incredibly enriching and really deepened my relationship with God.
Eli Sichalwe, Germany
So many people are broken-hearted, or the real word we are told, is shattered. And this is an opportunity to learn about the brokenness and how God intends to fix us, starting with us. And then using the gifts from the Spirit to help other people realise their true identity in Christ.
Anne Strobel, United Kingdom
When I arrived myself [*with wife's encouragement], I didn't think I needed this teaching, I didn't think I needed all this care. I would say 100% of Christians should come at some stage in their life, to this kind of ministry, especially this one. It covers everything. The staff, the volunteers, the whole group, have been absolutely wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble. I didn't think I was hurting, but it turned out I was. Until it is taken out and put on a washing line, you don't know. Down from the teaching, the prayer and the food, I cannot fault it. And you've all been so kind.
David Strobel, United Kingdom
I got to speak with people who were very mature who kinda lift me up in a sense and discern with what I was struggling that day and speak just the right word without even taking credit, saying "God told me, lala..." – they just had the maturity to speak into it, nip it and take it. I just appreciate that maturity.
Deante Preston, USA
When I came into Flagship, I had a real weight on my shoulders. I didn't understand the weight on my shoulders because deep down I sort of felt ok, but I knew there was a weight on me that I couldn't understand. Right the way through the course certain things happened like clockwork that this weight was taken off my shoulders.
John Watters, United Kingdom
There is so much fun built in as well, and that has just blown me away. So we have had family fun nights, summer fun days. God may have churned a few things up in the day and it's been a bit difficult, and then you have a family fun night where you just laugh. And that for me has been a key lesson. Because you might have difficult times, but you can still get together and have a laugh in the evening about normal, relaxed things. That's been a key learning point for me.
Marie Gildea, United Kingdom
I attended the 9-week Flagship Programme at Ellel Grange which totally changed my life. The teaching, prayer and the environment at Ellel Grange was tremendous in this process. In a dark world full of sin, evil and pain, Ellel really is a refuge where you come to be healed and restored.
Matthew Simms, United Kingdom
A typical day starts at 9.30am with worship together followed by training. There are also some evening and weekend sessions.
Delegates invariably testify that the experience gained through the practical sessions reinforces the truth and reality of all that they have heard during the teaching sessions. You will leave the programme encouraged and excited about putting the principles you have learnt into practice as you seek to be used by God to help and pray for others.
The Flagship structure and the attractive environment at Ellel Grange provides a wonderful setting for fellowship with other delegates. Optional outings, walks, film nights and recreational activities will be arranged as part of the programme to help you to unwind and relax and to fully enjoy the experience of attending the 9 Week Flagship Programme.

Your time on Flagship will be rich with opportunities to grow new friendships with people from both within the UK and also guests that come from all around the world. Throughout the 9-week journey of Flagship a sense of family gradually emerges as our guests learn from the teaching, share with each other and build one another up. There is never any pressure to do this, but the Lord meets each person at their own place in the journey of trust. Guests tell us ever year how Flagship feels safe to be yourself.
As in the Bible days, the best fellowship often happens around meal times! Let us spoil you with delicious meals, with time to chat, laugh and get to know one another. No cooking or washing up for 9-weeks (unless you really want to!). Enjoy special BBQ treat days, where guests and the team get to enjoy eating together outside on what we always hope (and often get!) will be beautiful, hot summer days.
The dates for the next Flagship programme at Ellel Grange are: 13th May – 15th July 2023
