Since September a pilot group from the Benefice began doing a course called Servant Leadership with the aims of growing as followers of Jesus and preparing to serve Him in the future. Meeting weekly we have had a mixture of Biblical teaching, personal application and practical giving-it-a-go. We come with a range of Christian experience and maturity- some of us have been Christians for a few years and others a number of decades- but we have all helped one another grow.
After a successful first two terms, we plan to start a new group in September, but in this time of lockdown we want to you the chance try some of the course modules we have done together. Please read the blurbs below and consider doing one or both of these individual modules. We hope to run two groups to best accommodate when people are available: one on either a Tuesday or a Thursday in the day and one on a Tuesday evening. Each module is six weeks long.

Leading a Bible Study from the Gospels: For many Christians the Gospels are a familiar part of their Bible but this module aims to help us read these biographies of Jesus with new eyes, hear God’s life-changing message for today and lead Bible studies that enable others to experience their life-changing power. In it we will learn simple keys to reading the Gospels, work together to write our own Bible studies and have a go at leading one ourselves. It would be a great context to lead a Bible study for the first time or to further hone your skills.
This module will run for six weeks on: Tuesday/Thursday 28th/30th April; 5th/7th May, 12th/14th May 19th/21st May, 2nd/4th June and 9th/11th June. (Avoiding school half term.)
Real Change: Christians believe that the Gospel is powerful to transform us, yet for many of us there feels like a gap between what we believe and the change we long to see in the details of our lives. In this course, we will explore together principles of Gospel change and help one another apply them to our lives. It great preparation both for a life-time of ongoing transformation in ourselves and for being an instrument of God’s work in others.
This module will run for six weeks on: Tuesday/Thursday 16th/18th June, 23rd/25th June, 30th June/2ndJuly, 7th/9th July, 14th/16th July and 21st/23rd July.
