Discipleship Course 2012
In the new year at St Maryís we are focussing on the theme of discipleship with a study course, sermons, and daily Bible readings. course is divided into SIX sections,and there are TWO studies for each section, making a total of TWELVE studies for the twelve weeks. Sunday sermons and talks will also follow the themes and be recorded, so that you can catch up on them if you canít be in church. This will be accessible through the sermon page on our website. Readings are set for each day while the course is on. You will find these on a separate card or see below to download. Start day is Sunday January 15th when Bishop Paul will be speaking at our 9.15 and 10.45am services, and the course carries on until Easter. Itís like an extended Lent Course.
How can the course be used?
Follow the course in the homegroup you belong to, or in one of the groups especially setup for this purpose. As these groups will usually meet every fortnight they will have six sessions relating to the six sections of the course, choosing one of the two studies provided for each section. Of course they could meet more regularly if they wanted to and use the other material, or group members could use it in the intervening weeks.
We are excited by the prospect of the course and how it may affect us in our discipleship. The themes are limited to PERSONAL aspects of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ, but the implications and outworkings of our discipleship will flow into how we operate as church together, and how we reach out into our community and world in loving action and with a message of good news. is about the individual foundation of a life committed to Jesus Christ, where there is a desire to understand more about what that commitment means. prayer is that the combination of sermons, talks, readings, prayer and sharing in groups will take us on further in our individual experience of being a disciple, which will in turn affect positively our church and our mission in the world.
