From the new year, there will be three parts to the 20+30s ministry: The Hub, Socials, and Community events.
The “Hub”s will be every 2 weeks (not including Easter, summer or Christmas holidays) on non-House Group weeks. The intention of Hub is to be an ADDITION to House Groups – not a replacement too. However, if you are not able to attend a house group, this might be a good way to get involved with the bible in a group setting. It’s a time to get together and be challenged on a deeper level about our own faith and walk with Christ.
For 2018 the Hub will be going through the “Freedom in Christ” course. Each session will start with a meal (we will all take turns cooking for each other meaning that each person will cook once or twice each year) and social time, before going through the Freedom in Christ course, which usually begins with a DVD with time at various intervals for discussion and questions. We’ll then finish each session with prayer. Topics that will be covered include key truths of life (such as our identity in Christ and spiritual warfare), what the bible says about handling emotions and forgiving others.
The course is designed as a 13-week plan which fits well into the year, so it would be ideal if you can try and come each week – however I completely understand that sometimes this happens in life and there are occasions that you might not be able to come. If you’re unable to come, please try and let Emily know or someone else in the group know by the day before, especially so that we can make sure there is enough food for everyone!
There will be one “Social” each month. The point of socials is to invite 20+30s into the church, so it’s a great time to invite new people to the 20+30s group! These socials will be at a variety of days and times to include as many people as possible throughout the year, and there will be different levels of cost. Some may be free, or the cost of travel, while some others may be £20+ for meals out and specific activities. If you are ever worried about the cost of a specific event, please do talk to me discreetly as there may be a way to help. If you would like to organise a social, please do let me know as I’d love for everyone to be able to do this if they want to!
There will be one “Community” event each month. The point of community events is to get us out into the community and being generous with our time to help others. Again, these events will be at a variety of days and times to include as many people as possible throughout the year. Some will be fundraisers, and some will require more organisation than others. If you would like to organise a community event, please do let me know as I’d love for everyone to be able to do this if they want to!
