Option 1

READING THE  BIBLE AS ONE STORY - Colin Day

The extraordinary message of scripture.  Engage with the story of God in our world, in Jesus and the gospel in a deeper, more invigorating but challenging way.  Identify the key events, symbols and understandings from the Old Testament that take us into a greater appreciation of the person and ministry of Jesus in the New.

 

Option 2

UNPACKING THE SCRIPTURES - Steve Fail

Often understanding and unpacking the scriptures seems overwhelming to us, where do we start, how do we understand and apply God’s word? Though the inductive approach of observing, interpreting and applying the scriptures we’ll learn practical ways to unearth the treasure of God’s word for us today.

 

Option 3

SEVEN SIGNS OF THE KINGDOM  - Pauline Simonsen

Jesus’ seven “signs” in John’s gospel reveal an extraordinary king who changes people’s lives for good. What does this King and his radical kingdom promise to 21st century people like us? What do these signs mean for our world today? This course focuses on the seven signs in the gospel of John as a way to hear the evangelist’s profound message to human beings everywhere.

                     

 

Option 4

PAUL TO TIMOTHY AND TITUS - Ian Reid and Ruby Porter

Who were Paul, Timothy and Titus and what do they have to say to us today?  These three were some of the most influential people in setting up patterns for how churches should be shaped, what we believe and how we live together in community.  Come and find out why they were so important, what they had to say in their own time, why that was controversial and how it impacts how we live

 

OPTION 5

BOOKS OF HISTORY - Isaac Pettersen

Diving into the rich living history of the Old Testament Historical books, full of intriguing characters. The historical books are more than just a reminder for the Jews of their past, but rather powerful stories that help us better understand God’s plan for humanity, and help us better understand ourselves.
