We're excited to have a strong line up of teaching seminars to help you grow in your faith. 

Seminar 1
11:30am–12:15pm

David Campbell •  Seminar Room 1

Living a Spirit-filled life

Jesus sent his helper – the Holy Spirit – to teach and empower the church, and the apostle Paul encouraged the early church to be filled with the Spirit and eagerly desire the spiritual gifts. What does that mean for us today? How do we keep in step with the Spirit? In this seminar, David will bring accessible teaching on receiving the Holy Spirit, and consider the practical outworking of living life according to the Spirit.

Breaking strongholds and living free

(Part 1 of 2)

Even whilst Jesus is our Lord there can be places in our souls where we know we live under a power that is not of God. We might call it an addiction or demonic oppression. Whatever terms we use we know the longing to be free and this seminar is designed to give practical tools as well as biblical understanding so that we can live free and be the good news in our lives that we proclaim with our lips. Jesus sad that he came to set the captives free and this seminar will not only help us experience this but also equip is to help others know joyful liberty.

Steve Tebb •  Seminar Room 3

The power of worship

Worship is what we were created for. It is a part of our call as children of God to declare the praises of God. I’ll be looking at worship as one of the means by which God releases the kingdom, and worship as a weapon of warfare that has the ability to see breakthrough and freedom in a person’s life as well as impacting a region.

Phil Warren •  Seminar Room 4

The ‘immediately’ moments

Often we think of the kingdom of God in general terms, in the sense that his realm is here, the Holy Spirit is moving and lives are being transformed. But in our day to day living, we know there are moments when his power suddenly comes upon us (and we can be in the marketplace or at work) and we are called to make a choice as to whether we want to come in line with the King’s will in that moment or not; the ‘immediately’ moments. This seminar will be looking at Mark 9 and what it is to be fearless and courageous in faith and seize these moments that God loves to give his people to see his kingdom come in power.

Mark Madeley •  Seminar Room 5

Israeli Ambulance and the Prince of Peace: a partnership

Mark Madeley, an Anglican Minister from Weston-super-Mare will be speaking about the work of the Israeli Ambulance service on behalf of the Christian Friends of Magen David Adom, and will be sharing a number of testimonies of what God has done through them.

Seminar 2
12:15–1pm

David Campbell •  Seminar Room 1

Practical prophecy

God spoke to the prophet Joel, declaring, “in the last days, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” Some equate prophecy with dark arts or parlour tricks, but rather than treating this practice with suspicion, we are exhorted by the apostle Paul to “earnestly desire to prophesy”. In this practical seminar, David seeks to demystify the prophetic, exploring how it can function in the life of the church to bring edification, exhortation and comfort.

Intimacy with God

Intimacy with God is one of the greatest blessings we’ve been given by the Father and has always been His desire for us. It is the fuel to a life of fruitfulness, fire and freedom in God. I’ll be looking at the call we have to be intimate with God, and the effect it has to transform our own lives and impact others around us.

Gregg Donaldson •  Seminar Room 4

Steps to understanding the Bible

Is there a method or technique to understanding the Bible? Are there tools I need to use? We will go through practical pointers and principles to help you understand the Bible for yourself and to get so much more Spiritual food out of God’s wonderful book, so we can become “workmen, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15)

Tim Keenan •  Seminar Room 5

3 keys to transformational community

2000 years ago following the death of Christ, the disciples gathered in the upper room. Afraid for their lives, they waited on God’s power to be sent out throughout the earth. Over the next 300 years, despite persecution, social exclusion and religious bigotry, this radical community supernaturally transformed the known world, becoming the official religion of the entire Roman Empire. Join Tim as we delve deeper into the biblical principles which inspired the community that transformed the world.
