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 will be for nine Sundays, starting on Sunday 24th January, plus a day towards the end of 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 9:00pm. It will be every Sunday from 24th January to 13th March, then 10th April.
The day will be Saturday 19th March from 9:00am to about 3:45pm for some people, and for others on a date arranged to suit them.
A typical Sunday evening will be:
Coffee, tea and biscuits
Two or three videos, each about 10 to 15 minutes, with clear teaching from the Bible about the freedom Jesus has won for us, and examples and testimonies of how that works out in our lives
‘Pause for Thought’ times, with an opportunity to discuss the teaching in small groups
The day then allows time for the Holy Spirit to apply this teaching into each person’s life. The day can be just time for each individual to be with God, with prayer guided by suggestions from a DVD. Or many people prefer to have another person guide them through it. It is straightforward, gentle and kind. It is facilitated by ordinary Christians.
You may have done the ‘Steps to Freedom in Christ’ day previously, but this course contains a lot more. There is practical Bible-based teaching, and testimonies of how the Holy Spirit has changed lives. Even if you’ve done the ‘Steps’ before, come again on the course! Many people have used it as a regular spiritual ‘MOT’!
