Explore B8: Living in My God-given Identity

Two Day Event

FRIDAY EVENING - SATURDAY EVENING (SUNDAY OPTIONAL)

About the Course


We are all born with the innate question in our hearts, “Who am I?”

Indeed, life can be seen as an exploration of searching for answers to this question, but we soon discover we are faced with conflicting answers. In our quest to fit in, be acceptable, valued and loved we can easily acquiesce to pressures, expectations and demands forcing us to suppress elements of our own unique personhood or even take on elements that are not really us but seem more acceptable.

God alone knows the full extent of your unique identity and He longs for you to walk freely in just being ‘you’. This course explores how things have gone awry, the power of self-rejection and how truth in the inner most places is the key to discarding your false identities and finding the real you.

From this place, you can then explore a fresh and confident relationship with God, with a new-found deep certainty of his love, forgiveness and acceptance.

About our Explore courses


This course is part of our exciting Explore programme. You can join any Explore course individually, but to receive the full experience we recommend you register for the entire series of this life-transforming programme.

EXPLORE IS FOR ANYONE WHO…

…desires a deeper, closer and more meaningful relationship with God

…knows there are issues in their life which are holding them back

…wants to understand God’s plan for their own life so they can walk in it

…wants to grow in their understanding of healing so that they can help others

I arrived with no hope left... Hope has been restored, love refilled, belonging confirmed. The lies have gone, and the light is back and I am determined to walk in His promise!
