Welcome to the South Quadrant!
The Navigators UK Southern quadrant covers a vast area from London and the South East of England to Wales and the South West of England, and from Oxford to Southampton. This quadrant is overseen by Phil & Susan Watson (Cardiff). There are a number of Navigators Reps and Associates at work involved in mentoring, discipling and small groups in a whole range of contexts. Southampton and Bournemouth are great places to plug in and grow during your student days. We are also involved with supporting graduates entering working life around the quadrant but especially in London. Beyond that we have people active in local church life, providing training and resources that are helping put discipleship at the heart of their local church. For those who are further on in life’s journey, Second Half Living is an exciting initiative seeking to ensure that mutually supportive discipling continues through your 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond. Phil and Susan Watson

Ministry in Life
Second Half Living is a discipleship ministry in Britain for those in their 50’s & 60’s born out of a desire to see those in the ‘second half’ of life continue to seek their purpose in God’s plan. Second Half Living groups meet for encouragement, prayer and Bible study. These groups exist that members will actively find what God wants to use their energies, time and experience for in the coming years.
The Navigators UK are connected to a household in South London which seeks to demonstrate life-giving Christian community through shared prayer and rhythms of life. The intention is to support people at different stages of life, but particularly graduates living in London for the first time. Anyone interested in finding out more about the household can get in touch: email@example.com
