Seminar: Refresh your prayer life: The secret reasons we don’t pray (and how to overcome them)

We know prayer is important. So why do we find it so hard to do (or at least, to do with much enthusiasm)? This session will give voice to the nagging fears and guilty secrets that diminish our desire to pray. We’ll dwell on the truths from God’s word that we need to overcome them. And we’ll share ideas and inspiration to help us get going.

Seminar: Living Faithfully in our Culture: Faithful in our Reverence

Bob Dylan was right about human beings: ‘you’re gonna have to serve somebody’. How does being faithful to the Lordship of Jesus Christ (and not other ‘lords’) frame our lives, our loves and our longings?

Seminar: Faithful Witness: Training the local church for evangelism (Part 1)

My job as an evangelist is, Ephesians 4 verses 10 to 12, to equip God’s people for works of service. In this first session we’ll be looking at the three great Bible principles of evangelism in 2 Corinthians 4 verses 1 to 6. We’ll then reflect on what it means to be Biblically balanced in our evangelism. The great aim here is to give the church family confidence that God is the evangelist, but we have to do our part and what does it mean to be equipped to speak for Christ in the modern culture.

Seminar: Hope in an Anxious World: Hope for our anxious hearts

We live in a fallen world – it’s easy to worry and fear – so, if you know what it’s like to be anxious, you are not alone! But what hope does Jesus give us in our pain? In our seminar, we’ll be looking at some practical strategies and some of the liberating and heart-transforming promises of Jesus that will help us live lives of perseverance and trust.

We shall find out how God is faithful even in difficult times. Each session will be streamed on YouTube.

Evening Celebration: A faithful God, a model faith and a royal baby

The opening two chapters of Luke’s gospel highlight the faithfulness of God as the Old Testament story – a story awaiting a conclusion for a people awaiting consolation – comes to its climax in Jesus. Jesus is revealed as the fulfilment of Jewish hopes for salvation, an expression of God’s mercy and faithfulness to his promises.

In Luke 1:26-38 we are told of another child to be born. Mary’s child surpasses Elizabeth’s; Mary’s faith surpasses Zechariah’s. And in the midst, God does the impossible, in faithfulness to his promises.

This session will be live streamed and available for catch up.
