A modular course oriented around the aims of Colossians 2:7. Lasting two years, the material slowly develops skills in the disciplines of bible study and prayer. Personal study and scripture memorisation are highly valued. Requires commitment and the approach is somewhat prescriptive, but the foundations built have helped many.


We meet to:

Apply the Bible practically

Memorise verses

Enjoy excellent fellowship

Support each other in witnessing

Deepen our prayer life

Learn to listen to God
