Explore B4: Dealing with Difficult Emotions

Two Day Event

FRIDAY EVENING - SATURDAY EVENING (SUNDAY OPTIONAL)

About the Course


From the ups to the downs, emotions are an essential part of being human. Without them our relationships are empty and mechanical and our lives grey and colourless.

Yet many of us struggle with our emotions, often trying to deny and even crush them because they seem to be the cause of our problems. The reality is that some emotions seem very hard to handle; they can be overwhelming, seem unacceptable or even feel destructive.

This course seeks to bring a full understanding of what your emotions are, why they exist and how you can handle them in a godly way. It will unpick the intricacies of difficult emotions such as grief, anger and jealousy, and how God has purposed for you to find release and His comfort, so you can move safely through the turmoil and find a new place of rest.

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

The course helped me by highlighting issues I need to repent of and people I need to forgive and giving me the space to do that in ministry. Really good teaching on how to handle anger in a godly way.
