Freedom in Christ
Jan

7:15 PM19:15

Freedom in Christ

The Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course is for everyone – whether you have been a Christian for 5 minutes or 50 years. 

It helps us to build into our everyday life the truths about the freedom Jesus has won for us. 

We’ve seen people who thought their lives were OK find even more of the love, joy and presence of God through the course.  We’ve also seen God free people from the ‘baggage’ we all pick up in life.  And God has freed people from doing or thinking unhelpful things.

The course is ten Sundays, starting on Sunday 14th January 2018, plus a day later in the course.  We’ll meet for tea and coffee at 6:45 pm for a 7:00pm start on the Sundays and finish promptly at 9:10pm.  It will be every Sunday from 14th January to 4th February, then 18th February to 25th March, plus a Sunday after Easter.

The day will be Saturday 10th or 17th March from 9:15am to about 2:45pm, or another time arranged to suit you.

The ‘Steps to Freedom in Christ’ day then allows time for the Holy Spirit to apply this teaching into each person’s life.  The day gives time for each individual to be with God, with prayer guided by someone who is there to encourage and support you, or with prayer guided by a DVD.  It is straightforward, gentle and kind.  It is facilitated by ordinary Christians.

December Burn

On December 1st we're having our next "Evening till Morning" worship and intercession time in Durham city, running from 7pm Friday to 7am Saturday. Many thanks to the Durham Christian Partnership for opening up their home to us. You would be most welcome to join us as we gather around our Immanuel, “God with us” - King Jesus!

At the last Burn in October, there was a real theme of realignment with the heart of a God who sets captives free and a generation rising into fullness. It was so good to see many across Durham churches getting involved!

This Christmas season as we reflect on the incarnation let us continue to look to Jesus! Let's praise him for our adoption as sons and intercede for others; that they would know that same acceptance, affirmation and access to the Father through Jesus witnessed to us by his Spirit! His love changes everything.
