Do we truly know the extent of God’s grace & love for us?
If you don’t first know God’s love for you in your heart – not just your head – it’s impossible for your life to be motivated by love for Him. The Grace Course’s aim is to enable Christians to experience God’s grace in such a deep and real way that love for Him becomes the main motivator in our lives.
The Grace Course
The Grace Course is a tool for churches to help Christians recover their first love for God so that they go on to love others and make a great impact on the world. It teaches the wonderful truths of grace but has an emphasis on helping people experience that grace. There are practical exercises, times of listening to God and a gentle ministry component, The Steps To Experiencing God’s Grace.

Frustrated that so many of us Christians fail to reach our potential? Looking for a great way to get off to a flying start? Want a course to follow Alpha or Christianity Explored? There are three basic components: Discipleship teaching that helps Christians understand who they are in Christ, the nature of the spiritual battle, and how to move on to maturity.
This works best in small groups. A ministry process called The Steps To Freedom In Christ. This is run between sessions 9 and 10 of the course and helps Christians deal with negative influences and unresolved spiritual conflicts. It is straightforward, gentle and kind. It is generally facilitated by ordinary Christians. Help to stand firm in the freedom gained, especially through renewing the mind (Romans 12:2).
The course is comprehensive and exceptionally easy to use. It is backed up by books, audio material and training resources. And we are on hand to advise at any point.
Registration for this course has no closed – please contact the office for more information.
