How to make sense of the Old Testament for myself

The Old Testament is long, confusing, has weird names and is written so long ago in a context so different to ours. How do we make sense of it? We are called to read our Bibles but what. In this workshop, we will look at how to make sense of the Old Testament for ourselves and discover the treasure that God has given us, without having to google answers

How to think Christianly about moral & political issues

In a world that is politically divided and where Christianity’s views are often not appreciated, how do we think about moral and political issues? How do we use the bible and our brains to engage when the easy thing to do seems to be staying silent or agreeing?

Hospitality on a budget

I love Jesus, but—seriously—the local church!?!

Ghandi famously said ‘I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.’ In an age where we are constantly told that everything is about ME, committing to a local church can seem so yesterday. Why not give up on that old pastor, and those going nowhere people, and head along to the church where there are heaps of young ads, the pastor wears skinny jeans, and there are fire sermons (every week!)? During this workshop we will explore why committing to your local church is gloriously exciting, it is the hope of the world, and will multiply your joy. Not to mention…it is expected by the Lord Jesus!

Sharing Jesus: without feeling like a failure

Like me, you feel that you should share Jesus with your friends, but you also feel like you’re not very good at it. This workshop will give you a simple and effective way to share your faith with your friends, while also working through those feelings of “not being good enough”.
