Two Day Event

FRIDAY EVENING - SATURDAY EVENING (SUNDAY OPTIONAL)

About the Course


Life can sometimes be a bit (or a lot) of a battle! These battles come in different shapes and sizes. For example;

  • battles to stay faithful to God, to resist the temptation of sin.
  • battles with our thoughts, responses and behaviours.
  • battles to choose to trust again after the injustice, betrayal and rejection or deep pain from the past.
  • battles for the peace of our family and our home
  • battles with the reality of the spiritual forces at work against us as Christians

How weary we can get with all that we are trying to navigate, and what loneliness can grip our hearts as we struggle to keep our head above the water swirling around us! Yet we are not alone… God does not leave us unequipped or abandoned to fight with only our own strength.

We would love you to join us for this weekend with Andy and Cath Taylor as we take an honest look at the battles we can all face, looking at where the source of these battles are – is it the enemy, our own choices or could it even be the Lord Himself trying to get our attention? We will look together at ways and strategies that God has given us to fight, whilst also knowing sometimes the greatest victories come from simply being still and letting the Lord fight for us.

It’s an opportunity to refocus, gain some insight and wisdom on what is going on and to hear the Lord’s voice in the midst of the battles you are facing. His heart is to strengthen us, equip us and for us to know His peace and victory as we look to Him.

For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”

Isaiah 41:13, ESV
