Church Life Course

As a church community we believe in unity, and being joined together with a leadership with shared vision and values. To give clarity to that we have a church membership, which currently stands at just over 200 people. To become a member, it is important to know what you are "signing up" to, so we regularly hold a Church Life Course.

This is designed to teach what the church believes, its vision and values and its mission. 
We trust that by the end of the course you will be able to make an informed decision as to whether joining the church is the next step for you; which is done with the help of an elder.

The dates that we have available in the near future are:
Tuesday 20th June, 7:00pm, The Durham Centre

Keys to Health and Wholeness event
Jun
16
to Jun 17

Keys to Health and Wholeness event

This event, run by Freedom in Christ Ministries, is designed to equip you with a clear, straightforward understanding of the Biblical principles for wholeness, health and healing. It will help you live a fruitful, whole life by embracing God’s guidelines for good health and will give you practical tools for helping yourself and others.

We will look at health and wholeness from a medical perspective seated firmly within a Biblical worldview. This means that we will not just consider the physical body but will consider your whole being (body, soul and spirit) as well as the potential effects of the unseen spiritual world on health and wholeness.

You will learn keys to help you resolve health issues that you do not need to put up with and discover how to live well despite the limitations of your physical body.

We will consider questions such as:

·         what can I do practically to be as healthy as possible?

·         how do spiritual issues affect physical health?

·         under what circumstances can we expect to see supernatural healing today?

This event is for any Christian who has an interest in understanding health issues from a Biblical perspective. It will also bring useful insights to church leaders and Christian health professionals into how to help those in their care find wholeness.

To view or download the publicity leaflet click here- feel free to print it out and distribute it.

Speakers: Steve Goss (International Director of Freedom in Christ Ministries), Alison FleetwoodSue Sorensen and Mary Wren, (all GPs with wide experience of Freedom and healing ministries).

Cost: £20 to Emmanuel people - book via Richard Alty fic@emmanuel.org.uk

Friday evening 16th June, 2017: 7.30-9.30pm.  Tea/Coffee and registration from 7pm.

Saturday 17th June, 2017, 9.15am - 4.30pm.

At The Durham Centre

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the event, but please bring your own lunch on Saturday.
