Create a clear path to achieve your mission in a rapidly changing world.

Do you feel like you are constantly running from thing to thing unable to focus on and prioritise the core purpose of your school?

Do you feel your school could benefit from more student voice and more effectively engage your staff, parents and the wider community?

Do you want to develop learners who are ready to make a redemptive impact on our world, but feel unsure how to do it?

Create impact
Align your mission
Foster innovation

Seed’s purpose and the ultimate outcome we seek is the formation of students for redemptive influence in the world.

In the midst of the chaos and busyness of school life, we use our purpose-built Redemptive Design process to help you align every aspect of the school’s life with your Christian identity.

The Christian story isn’t just something you know about, believe in or do, it’s the foundation for everything.  By connecting  formation with design we help you put the Christian story (back) at the heart of everything you do.

We are consultants who care about your mission. Utilising our purpose-built Redemptive Design Framework and Toolkit, we’re committed to helping you maximise the redemptive change you bring in society through design and innovation.

Get Clarity
Align your impact with your God-given purpose

Design Offerings

We utilise a variety of design labs, workshops, coaching and consulting to deliver outcomes across these three core areas.


We help you co-create and define a clear and compelling:

  • School profile (who we are becoming) – includes  purpose, vision identity & values 
  • Graduate profile (learner formation) – aligned with school profile 
  • Story of change – how you can move from current reality to imagined future


We complete an alignment audit reviewing all or specific aspects of your school’s life and then identify strategies for greater integration of the Christian story through:

  • Stakeholder Engagement – surveys, focus groups,  interviews
  • Data & Contextual Analysis – assets & barriers to imagined future
  • Discernment & Action – key opportunities and recommended measures to be taken


We help you to strategise and innovate while ensuring your Christian identity remains at the core through:

  • Strategic plan development including discernment of strategic priorities
  • Monitoring framework that ensures alignment and integration of the Christian story across governance, operations and programs
  • Design Sprints & Labs for Education Programs & Initiatives

Schools Enquiry


“The Council and Executive of St Luke’s wanted to ensure that our Christian identity and mission were shaping all areas of school life, but in a way that was meaningful and helpful for our stakeholders who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Seed facilitated an excellent process of review and stakeholder engagement. Their Redemptive Design framework and tools helped us clarify the steps we needed to take to align all we do toward an imagined future where students and alumni have an authentic experience of Jesus at the school, then carry this into their families, communities and the world.”
