Women's Meet-up

Am I the only person who struggles to make meaningful friendships?
How can I be free from comparing myself to others?
How do I get my needs met by ‘spending time with God’?
How does social media impact our self-image?

If you’ve ever asked yourself a question like this then meet other like-minded women at our Women’s Meetup. Happening once a month, we gather to discuss, learn and share practical ways to implement and live out our faith in Jesus as we face a common cultural issue each month.

These mornings host frank, honest discussions so to help ladies feel free to disclose, we won't be admitting children (except babies in arms).

You don't have to book to come along - but it does help us cater if you let us know you're planning to.

The Alpha Course
Sep

The Alpha Course

WHAT IS ALPHA?

The Alpha Course provides a unique opportunity for you to discuss and explore Christianity and life's big questions in an informal, fun and friendly environment. Whether you're an atheist or have never considered any kind of spiritual existence, Alpha is an open and safe place where you can find out more about Jesus and ask questions. 

WHAT'S THE FORMAT?

Alpha runs over 10 Monday evenings, each evening beginning with a home cooked dinner where you can meet and get to know others who've joined the course.

Then there's a short easy-to-listen-to talk addressing a particular question relating to faith, religion, spirituality and life. It's not meant to be treated as a lecture but more as an opportunity for you to explore what you really think.

After the talk we break into smaller discussion groups over coffee & cake. It's the perfect time for you to share your thoughts about what's been discussed that evening. 

The whole purpose of the course is to provide a space where you can ask your questions about Jesus, about Christianity, the Church and Bible - so don't be shy!

WHEN'S THE NEXT COURSE?

Alpha begins again on Monday 22nd January 2018. You can expect a warm welcome each evening. Whether you're by yourself or coming with friends, we'll do our best to make you feel right at home. 

Lots of people want to try out the first evening before they commit to the whole course - which you are very welcome to do. The entire course, including dinner, is completely free.

Vineyard Introductions

New-ish here? Then join us for an essential introduction to the Vineyard Church! Hear where we’ve come from, where we’re placed in the UK Vineyard movement and the wider Church generally.

Discover our core beliefs and values, and our vision for the future. You’ll learn how we use the ‘Kingdom of God’ that Jesus so often talked about, as a lens to look at the world; explaining how it impacts and informs the way we read the Bible, the way we pray for healing, the way we choose to live and the way we care and serve the community. 

These Tuesday evenings will also provide you with a great opportunity to meet our Senior Pastors Chris & Fliss, connect with the team here and meet more people from the church including other newcomers. 

This FREE course runs over 6 Tuesday evenings 7.45pm-9.45pm
11th, 18th & 25th Sep, 2nd, 9th & 16th Oct

Emotionally Healthy Relationships

If you've completed 'Vineyard Introductions' and 'Rising to the Call' then join us for this powerful journey that will forever change the way you love God, others, and yourself.

This course will help us develop mature and life-giving relationships.
Whether with your friends, your children, your spouse or your colleagues, the Emotionally Healthy Relationships course gives us what we need by teaching practical skills such as how to:

Stop mind-reading and clarify expectations
Listen like an expert
Fight like a pro
Climb the ladder of integrity

 

And since loving others and loving God cannot be separated, each person will also grow in their personal, first-hand relationships with Jesus by incorporating stillness, silence, and Scripture as daily life rhythms.

This EQUIP course builds neatly on the Emotionally Healthy Spiritualty which we ran earlier this year or as a standalone course.

This FREE course runs over 6 Tuesday evenings 7.45pm-9.45pm
11th, 18th, 25th Sep, 2nd, 9th & 16th Oct

Emotionally Healthy Relationships is an Equip Course. You need to have completed Vineyard Introductions and Rising to the Call to join this course.

Rising to the Call

Jesus commissioned his followers to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:18-20

How many of us find this challenging?
Are overwhelmed by it?
Or feel inadequate for the task?

Rising to the Call is for those who have completed Vineyard Introductions, continuing the Equip journey giving you further tools and the confidence you need to respond to this commission. We’ll look at what the Bible has to say about it, the part the Holy Spirit plays in helping us to do it, including how we can use the gifting He’s given us, and how your unique presence in this world is essential to God’s redemptive plan for creation. This is an opportunity to learn with others, with a bit of ‘practice’! Join us to work out how individuals like us can play a part in bringing God’s Kingdom to the world around us. Topics include:

Prophecy & Hearing the Voice of God
Our Spiritual Authority
The Spiritual Battle
Doing Ministry like Jesus
Dream Interpretation
In the Market Place

This FREE course runs over 6 Tuesday evenings 7.45pm-9.45pm
11th, 18th & 25th Sep, 2nd, 9th & 16th Oct
