Behold Your God (Feb-Mar 2024)

Leader: Tony and Jilly Horsfall

The book of Isaiah is one of the largest in the entire Bible, and it is not always easy to understand. Yet it is packed with good things! Not only is it full of Jesus, with many passages pointing to him at the Servant of the Lord and coming Messiah, but it also calls us to enlarge our view of God so that we see him as the Sovereign Lord whose purposes are being worked out despite the opposition of the nations. As we read his beautiful words, hope rises within us as we are reminded that `the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea (11:9).`

Send My Roots Rain

Leader: Christopher Chapman

Send my Roots Rain will explore ways of allowing the life-giving water of the Spirit to soak down to your roots. Our roots lie in our story, in our experience of calling, and above all in abiding in relationship with our life-giving God. With the demands of ministry and the uncertainties that hang over the future, our roots can become dry. In caring for others we can neglect to look after ourselves. Yet every minister is also a disciple, called to the intimacy of companionship with Christ and continued growth in the Spirit. Our spiritual, physical and emotional health matters to God, who calls each one by name.

Non-residential price: £295.00
