Training and events coming up
LIGHTWAVE SMALL GROUP LEADER TRAINING! The next round of small group leader training starts on 18th September for 6 weeks between 7.30pm and 9.30pm at 5 Brook Lane, Playford, IP6 9DY. For further information and booking please contact Nina.Seaman@cofesuffolk.org.
Lightwave is a community of small outward focused groups bringing a wave of God’s Light and love all over Suffolk. Groups meet in homes, pubs, offices, schools etc and work alongside more traditional ways of doing church. Lightwave is committed to shining the light of Jesus in Suffolk through acts of kindness and practical service, as well as worship and witness. Lightwave groups do the essential things of church - but in a whole variety of different ways, suited to the needs of their members and the context of a small group who get to know each other well. This course trains Lightwave group leaders and helpers,by enabling them to experience and model the life of a Lightwave group over 6 sessions. Come prepared to learn, to laugh, to pray and be both supported and challenged.
REUNION - online evangelism training course Reunion is for those 30 years or older in Ireland or the UK, who want to learn evangelism as a life resource and are willing to put it into practice. The training takes place in small online communities that resources you to do evangelism in your every day, without gobbling up your schedule.
Each week reunion uploads a 30-minute podcast packed with teaching, stories or practical tips designed to help you learn about evangelism. The podcast is accessed on the Reunion website and you will be connected to other people online ho have listened to the same podcast. The community teases out what the teaching might look like in each person’s context and this can take 60-90 minutes.
Reunion is for those who want to be coached and resourced in evangelism and is suitable for all abilities or experience. We are presuming a living Christian faith.
We have 3 spaces left on this course - if you are interested please contact Nina.Seaman@cofesuffolk.org for more information and how to book.
