The Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course

The Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course

Equip every Christian to reach their full potential in Christ, to journey from converts to fruitful disciples.
Freedom in Christ is a course which is run at intervals at different venues around Cumbria.  It is open to Christians of all denominations.

The course includes a gentle, reflective and prayerful process called "The Steps To Freedom in Christ" to help participants repent of past sin and resist evil.  For many this "clearing out of rubbish" is key to the teaching falling into place.
The course is usually done in 13 evening sessions plus one Saturday

Comments from Course Members:-

"A pivotal point in my Christian life...I now feel that I have the abundant life which Christ spoke of."
"I was separated from the truth of God's love and Jesus' liberation by a large wall of pain, wounds, and lies.  But the wall came tumbling down."

 

The Grace Course

If you don't first know God's love for you in your heart - not just your head - it's impossible for your life to be motivated by love for Him. Instead you are likely to end up motivated more by guilt or shame or fear or pride. You may be doing all the "right" things, believing all the right things and saying all the right things but there will be precious little fruit and you won't experience the true rest that Jesus promised.
The Grace Course is a tool to help Christians recover their first love for God so that they go on to love others and make a great impact on the world. Its objective is to enable Christians to experience God's grace in such a deep and real way that love for Him becomes the main motivator in their lives.

Comments from Course Members:-

"Very exciting. I have heard again the truth of God's love for me and have been able to identify misconceptions and false beliefs."
“I realized that it’s not about performance – He just wants my heart.”




The courses are being recommended by the Ministry and Training Department of the Diocese of Carlisle.  The approach and theology tends to be gently "charismatic", but has been appreciated by people from a wide range of types of churches.
