The Following Course is an 8-month discipleship course for Christians who want to grow in their relationship with Jesus in a structured way. It may be particularly helpful if you are relatively new to faith but is beneficial for any Christian.
The course focuses on the Beatitudes (“Blessed are the…”) and the verses that follow in Matthew 5-7 which expand on the theme of what it means to be followers of Christ. We gather monthly to discuss one of the Beatitudes with a focus on identifying practical outworkings in our daily lives. Then throughout the month we continue to reflect on the theme and seek to take advantage of opportunities to grow in that particular Beatitude. Everyone is linked with a mentor to be a support and encouragement during the course.
Feedback from some previous Following Course participants:
The next Following Course will probably start in 2017 but if a number of people express an interest sooner it may be possible to start sooner. Get in touch with Phil Trainer via the church office if you would like to know more.
