Explore B9: Discernment – A Defence Against Deception

5 - 6 May 2023

Two Day Event

FRIDAY EVENING - SATURDAY EVENING (SUNDAY OPTIONAL)

About the Course


We live in a time where moral and ethical standards are fluid and argued over by all sectors of society. Even in the Christian faith, there are a variety of voices, opinions and lobbying for numerous versions of ‘truth’.

To live in peace and security, we need to have a solid standard by which truth, behaviour and belief are measured; this is the plumbline of God’s Word.

Being able to steer your life safely through Satan’s subtle deceptions, human thinking and man’s good ideas is something the Lord wants to help us all with.

This course focusses on how we can lean on the Lord’s amazing gift of discernment and how to approach the Word of God in a way that sets a plumbline of Truth by which to live our lives. It will enable us to this walk forward, not in fear, but with boldness and confidence, avoiding the traps and schemes of Satan.

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 began to hear God much more clearly and much more regularly and was thrilled to hear the things He was sharing with me. My worship is now much deeper and my burden for the vulnerable is much more intense.
