Why do we do courses and training at GraceLife?
Part of the responsibility of this community is to equip each one of us for the work of the ministry that God has given to us (Ephesians 4: 11-13). One way we fulfil this is through teaching and training, using courses designed to disciple us in many vital areas of our lives.
Who are these courses for?
Everyone!! Who doesn’t need to grow in some area in 2019?
Prayerfully consider which of the following courses would help and encourage you to work with God for change, growth, healing, and maturity this year. But also think about family, friends and workmates who may also benefit and encourage them to come. All are welcome.

The FORMING course teaches and trains an approach to Christian growth and transformation that helps us to engage with God in ways that will transform us from the inside out. If you are tired of “try harder’ approaches to personal discipleship and spiritual growth, then this is for you! Each of the twelve sessions includes teaching and practical application/training, and is designed to expand our spiritual practice and help us develop greater intimacy with God. Come and encounter God afresh!
The topics included are: Revisioning Christian Development; Conversational Prayer with God; Balancing Our Part and God’s Part in Spiritual Formation; Addressing Barriers; Renewing Our Minds; Ways to Engage with God; Healing our Identity; Recovering from Self-Hate; Disarming our Fears; and Integrating Human Development and Spiritual Development.
