Mondays 4pm or Wednesdays 1pm (starting week 2 of semester 2)
Serving Jesus effectively requires character, conviction, and competence. Equip is our weekly training sessions designed to help us grow in all three.
This semester we’ll be exploring the topic of The Bible: a place to stand
Archimedes famously said, “Give me a place to stand and I can move the world”. The Bible claims to be God’s true word to us, giving a sure place to stand in the cross currents of culture and personal opinion. But what really is the Bible? Can I really trust it? Isn’t it also just a product of culture and opinion? Come and explore these questions together in Common Hour—a seminar-style session kind of like the seminars at Mid Year Mornings.
Mondays 5pm or Wednesdays 2pm or any other time!
Choose from a range of courses designed to equip you to serve Jesus more effectively. If you haven’t done Sharing the Gospel or Uncover, then start with one of them.
