The next in the series of Deep In The Word will begin on Wednesday 24th January. It will last about 7 weeks. This time we will be looking at 1 John. Note that this session will run on Wednesdays, previous ones have all run on Mondays. This is to allow people to attend for whom Monday’s are awkward. Of course, there will be people for whom Wednesdays are awkward, but we are just having a bit of variety,
1 John is a great book. It is strong both on doctrine and on practical love.
The course will be particularly suitable for small group leaders or those interested in leading small groups, and for others involved in any pastoral work and preaching. However, it is suitable for anyone who wants to learn more about God’s word and is prepared to put some work in.
You will be required to do “homework” before the lessons and it will be hard work. The “homework” consists of you been given some questions to think about prior to each week’s class. You do not have to submit this “homework”, but it is important to do the preparation. You will also be required to give a ten minute talk on some aspect of 1 John in the final week or two. I have always been greatly blessed by the talks in the final week. If you have a hunger for God’s word and are willing to put the effort in, then sign up.
It is important that you sign up beforehand. The course take place on Wednesdays at 7:30pm at the Gate, with each session finishing by 9:00 pm. It will start on Wednesday 24th January.
If you wish to take part please let the Gate Office know by 17th January 2018.
