Sunday nights at Grace
GROW @ GRACE is an opportunity to give us a space as a church family to gather and study a particular area of theology, faith or Christian life through a series of 6-8 teaching sessions each term.
Our next course starts Sunday 3 February 2019
“A Survey of Church History”
Our Sunday evening Grow@Grace sessions for Term 1 2019 will cover the Subject of Church History, from the time of the Apostles to the year 400. Many committed, knowledgeable believers still know little about the history of the church. As a result, they’re missing a testament to God’s steadfastness over the centuries. This video series sheds crucial light on church history, demonstrating Jesus’ promise to build and preserve his church so that “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). Join Dr. W. Robert Godfrey as he takes believers through this series covering theology, apologetics, notable church fathers, and much more.
This is how it works:
Those who are interested in the course commit to attending most of the sessions for those 6-8 weeks. Every Sunday evening, we will gather in the back hall, have a meal together, enjoy a short time of worship and prayer, move into a 45min teaching session, and sometimes with group discussions or QnA, and finish with tea and coffee. Each evening will run for about an hour-and-a-half.
At Grace, we have really rich Bible teaching and worship on Sunday mornings. We have our Grace Community Groups which provide a space to explore how the Bible affects how we live, in a small group of Christian friends. Grow @ Grace will be the third leg of that stool, where we hope to equip all of us for better engagement in Sunday worship services, better engagement in our small groups, and more confidence and ability to serve in ministry.
“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers,to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.” (Ephesians 4:11–14 ESV)
