Two Day Event
FRIDAY EVENING - SATURDAY EVENING (SUNDAY OPTIONAL)
We can easily lose sight of God’s plans and purposes for our lives, through our busyness or from our insecurities, fears and negative experiences. Measuring up against others can lead us to feeling in inadequate or that we have failed to attain the goals God has set for us.
Yet, the Scriptures are clear that the only way we can truly fulfil God’s plans and purposes in life are to be an active part of His family.
The subject of family is at the heart of the Gospel message and understanding the divine principles of being in God’s family is essential to accepting our position, role and responsibilities within His plans and purposes for our life.
This course will give an eternal perspective of what it means to fulfil our plans and purposes in God’s family and how we can grow and flourish in that place of belonging and rest. It will look at what it means to share in His work, pray His family prayer and draw strength from the family for your everyday life.
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 am so thankful for the retreat and for the chance to know God in a whole new way... as a Father who loves us unconditionally. His love is so freeing and so real! I know that the Spirit is in me and with me.
When you arrive for the course you will receive a printed booklet. This provides the teaching notes that will be covered during the event but also gives further questions for those who want to study the topic further after the event.
During the course there are six teaching sessions which cover the following topics:
Father God has affirmed my place in the family of God and of my worth and value.
