We've got a new Freedom in Christ course starting on Wednesday 27th February, and I want to strongly encourage everyone in our community who hasn't done the course to sign up and do it.
The reality is that all of us live with huge amounts of baggage in our lives. Things we've done and which have been done to us, things people have said to us which have stuck with us and now define us, lies which we believe about ourselves and past failures which constantly haunt us. Jesus came to set us free from all that stuff, but the reality is that even when we make the decision to follow him, the stuff doesn't just disappear but can do easily continue to define who we are and how we think and live.
The Freedom in Christ course is a structured place to work all of those issues through, and I can't recommend it strongly enough. If you've never done it before, or if it was quite some time since you last did it, then please consider doing it this time round.
Robert and Stacey who lead the course are two of the most down to earth people you could hope to meet, and do a great job of creating a safe environment in which to explore all of these issues.
It is a 13 week course which runs through to the 19th June. The cost is £20, which includes the cost of all the course materials, all of the refreshments and a day away. If cost is an issue for you then please let us know as we don't want it to be a barrier to anyone coming.
For this course we will also be offering signing for anyone in our deaf community who wants to attend.
If you are interested then please get a sign up form from the table in reception on Sunday, or phone reception on 01344 862699 to register.
