Lent Study Course – Receiving Christ in five different ways.
‘To all who received him … he gave power to become children of God.’ (John 1.12.)
This raises big questions. Aren’t we all children of God anyway? Just how can we receive Christ? And what does it mean to have ‘a relationship with God’?
Join Rev’d Timothy and June as we discuss these issues with the help of a booklet crammed with discussable questions, and audio clips from four leading UK Christians, including Nick Baines, the Bishop of Leeds and Margaret Sentamu, the wife of the Archbishop of York. Together they demonstrate that St John’s theology in his magisterial Gospel has very practical implications for our day-to-day lives.
Session 1: Receiving Christ: as children of God
Session 2: Receiving Christ: in the stranger and the needy
Session 3: Receiving Christ: in Holy Communion
Session 4: Receiving Christ: through prayer and fellowship
Session 5: ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’ (Colossians 1.27)
The course will run on Tuesday mornings, 10-11.30am, starting on 3rd March, and Thursday evenings, 7.30-9pm, starting on 5th March.
The Bush Ministry Fund (BMF) enables clergy to be on the ground and present in parishes that are not able to afford a full-time priest. In God’s grace, trained people offer spiritual leadership, encouragement, and care. The Bush Ministry Fund is currently supporting many projects within our Diocese. We can be part of making this possible by financially supporting the BMF by supporting the Bush Ministry Stall TODAY and throughout the year. The money we raise each month directly supports the parishes of Leichardt and Tara. Donations can also be made via direct deposit tagging the transactions with BMF to the following account details: BSB: 704-901 Account number: 00013448 Account name: Corp of Synod of Dioc Brisbane Alternatively, call Helen Briffa at the Regional Bishop’s Office on (07) 4639 1875. 100% of the funds donated to the BMF go to the people. No admin fee or wage gets deducted.
