Robin Brenchley our Minster in Training will be running the new 10 week “Freedom in Christ” Discipleship course. This course is for those who have been Christians for a long time; as well as being suitable for those who have more recently come to faith. It
focuses, not on how to behave, but on how to believe, and is designed to:-
- Enable you to spiritually mature, be fruitful and to reach your full potential in Christ.
- To uncover areas of spiritual deception holding you back.
- To help you resolve personal and spiritual conflicts.
- To enable you to renew your mind and break free from negative thinking and
unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
The course begins by reminding us of some key truths of who we are in Christ and teaches us how to overcome the world, the flesh and the devil and how to break the hold that the past has on us. There will then be a ministry day where we will be gently and sensitively led through the seven steps that help to set us free, as we meet with Christ and respond to him. The final section concentrates on walking in and maintaining our new found freedom in Christ.
This is a 10 week and we will be running the course weekly on Thursday evenings
( 7– 9:30pm) beginning on May 3rd and finishing on July 5th . The steps to Freedom in Christ ministry day will be on Saturday June 16th. The venue is still to be confirmed depending on how many people take part.
Each session will begin with a short time of Prayer and worship and will include a number of teaching presentations on DVD, which we will all share in together. Then at
appropriate times, we will split up into small groups to discuss the implications of the teaching.
If you would like to take part in this course, please add your name to the appropriate list on the notice board so that we can order the
required amount of material. Who knows, it could change your life! “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8 v 32.)
