Do you love God but often wish you could be more effective? Have a desire for more of God’s Kingdom to break in and see more happen? Feel inadequate but want to leave a legacy? If you sometimes think like this and want to Make a Difference, then this course could be for you.

Training for Supernatural Life is intended to bring about transformation and equip individuals to be released into their destiny and community. We don’t expect people to be experts (none of us are), but to be willing and open disciples.

The course will run on Tuesdays from 7.30 to 9.45pm (apart from outreach evenings which finish at 10pm) and will also include 3 full Saturdays, plus one Saturday morning. We will start on Saturday 20 January and finish on Tuesday 10 July 2018, with no meetings during the school holidays. The cost is £180 if paid by January 7 2018 – if payment is made after that it will be £200.

Evenings will consist of worship, ministry times, sharing stories, teaching, activation, small groups and outreach (but not all on the same evening!).

The syllabus will include teaching on the Kingdom of God, our identity, ungodly beliefs, Faith, Healing, God as Father, the Holy Spirit, the person of Jesus and much, much more.
