Our next Faith Seeking Understanding church training day is on Saturday 16 March 2024: ‘Faithful Discipleship in an age of individualism: Moving from Me, Myself and I to We, You and Us‘.
Members of our faculty and final year students will be bringing their expert knowledge and experience, as we look at this important subject for the church.
Faithful Discipleship in an age of individualism:
Moving from Me, Myself and I to We, You and Us
There will be a mixture of plenary sessions, taught by our Theology & Counselling Programme Leader and final year students. With workshops to help us think through how, in an age of individualism, we can faithfully follow Jesus and help others in the church to do so too.
This is a great opportunity to come and receive biblical teaching with insights from Counselling theory about how Christians should respond within the prevailing cultural climate, as we seek to live our lives for Jesus.
The day will include time to reflect and consider this important topic within a group setting. These interactive sessions will give plenty of opportunities for you to practice what you’ve learned and get feedback from your peers.
For anyone interested in growing as a disciple of Christ (hopefully all of us!), or wanting to know how we can better disciple those under our care, this is a not-to-be-missed training day, which is part of our Faith, Seeking, Understanding series.
We’ll be meeting at our Northwood Campus (online tickets are available for those who cannot attend in person), on Saturday 16 March 2024 (10am to 3.30pm).
Perfect for Church members, Bible study groups, and anyone wanting to keep moving forward in their journey of faith, we will have something for everyone.
At just £10 per head onsite, and £8 online, we believe it’s an accessible way to bless your church. Book your place today .
About Faith Seeking Understanding
A two-year curriculum will take you on a rich journey of discovery – introducing you to the delights of biblical studies; Christian doctrine and history; theology & worship, along with reflections on how to put what you learn into practise. Please click here to view the curriculum.
The training days are for any Christian who wants to grow in their faith. Taught by world-class scholars, in a practical and accessible way, there are three training Saturdays (10:00-15.30) through the year, which people can attend in-person or online.
The programme is ideally suited for home or cell groups to attend together so that you can use breakout groups to discuss how to apply what you’re learning in your own specific context. Whether you attend in person (if within striking distance of our Northwood campus) or online from anywhere in the world, FSU will transform your thinking – both as an individual Christian and as a church.
Here's what participants from last year's events said:
“Really engaging, great speakers & worship. Feeling Inspired. Astounding! Refreshing, enlivening!”
“Fantastic – I’m so grateful it has really strengthened my faith.”
“Truly mind-blowing – I hung onto every word that was said.”
“Faith Seeking Understanding at LST is a fantastic opportunity to take a deep dive into the Bible and the complexity, mystery and beauty of God’s word, under the guidance of experienced and Spirit- filled teachers. I would highly recommend it to both those who have a hunger to delve into theology and those who are considering dipping their toe in for the first time.”
How to get to LST
By Train: Northwood Underground Station is on the Metropolitan Line, about 35 minutes from Baker Street Station. (Take a train that is headed for Watford, Amersham or Chesham, not a train to Uxbridge which branches in another direction after Harrow-on-the-Hill). It is also easy to connect from Aylesbury on the Chiltern line.
Directions: If you are using a SatNav please use our postcode: HA6 2UW. If you are on foot from the underground station: turn left out of the station and keep going down Green Lane, nearly to the Rickmansworth Road: we’re on the right hand side, clearly signed.
Parking: there’s plenty of onsite parking. Please note that the ultra low emission zone (Ulez) is just east of Green Lane, if traveling via Rickmansworth or Watford, you should not need to enter the zone.
Tea and coffee will be provided with a slice of (very yummy) cake but you will need to provide your own lunch: either a packed lunch or nip to Waitrose/Costa in the lunch break (both located near the underground station).
