Holland Road Baptist Church


Transform is our eleven month intensive discipleship programme which has been running since January 2008.


Update – April 2019

As the leaders have sought God we have decided to prune Transform for one year. The purpose of this is to review the shape of Transform and how it fits within the vision of Holland Road, therefore next academic year, 2019/20, we are not going to be recruiting a Transform team. Please read on and find out more about Transform but note that we are not currently accepting applications for it. Our intention is to begin Transform, or a similar programme, in September 2020.


Transform runs every year from September to July and is for people who want to take risks for God.

It’s one thing seeing the kind of life that Jesus wants for his disciples in the Bible, it’s quite another thing seeking to actually put these things into practice and live them out everyday. Transform is all about growth in character and skills: growth through training, growth through mission and growth through ministry. It’s not always an easy time but it is one of the most challenging, fun and rewarding times you’ll go through.

What do some of our previous team members have to say about their time?

“If you want to be more like Jesus then do this” – Lena.

“An amazing year growing with God and realising that even though I’m broken, God always has a hold on me” – Lucy.

“Absolutely instrumental in understanding my identity as a child of God” – Katie.

“Life changing, transformational and quite honestly the best year of my life” – Lloyd.

“It has transformed my understanding of who I am in Christ and how I should follow him” – Nic.

“One of the toughest years I’ve had but 100% worth it!” – Tom.

“I am glad I was obedient to God’s calling. I have learned so much during this period and my life will never be the same. I definitely recommend it” – Anne.

“I now stand surely on the basics of who I am in Christ, secure to be challenged with trickier things “ – Josh.

“Challenging but genuinely life changing. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was obeying God’s promptings to do Transform” – Jason.
