Saturday Programme

Worship

Venue:

Kids Zone

Time:

2:00pm

For 2,000 years worship has been a pillar of Christian practice, and yet its form continues to evolve. What can we learn from the past and present, that can provide us with a healthy and productive understanding of ‘True Worship’ in this present moment? 

Come and have a conversation, with practical outworking and insights, on;

  1. What is ‘True Worship’?
  2. Are we cutting it? Or are we killing it?
  3. Is there more? And if so, what does that even mean?
  4. Where to from here?

Presented by Vaughn Tongs. Who is Vaughn?

Spiritual Liberation

Meeting Place

Jesus regularly cast out evil spirits as he taught, healed the sick and proclaimed the kingdom of God, and commissioned his discipled to do the same.

Apprenticeship to Jesus

Venue:

Workshop Room 1

Time:

2:00pm

The majority of us spend our days working, paid or unpaid. Yet so many struggle to find meaning in our work. Stress, mundanity, responsibility all take their toll. 

Apprenticeship to Jesus changes how we do and view our work. This workshop will consider what scripture says about work, what foundations we need to thrive, common myths and whether the right perspective can bring justice, restoration, and flourishing through what we do. 

This workshop is for everyone including those who aren’t ’employed’.
