TRACK ONE – from sinner to saint – Holiness

We will explore together the meaning of holiness, how it is possible, and how God is going to bring it about in our lives. We will be challenged to persevere in this path, warned of the distractions and pitfalls along the way, and see afresh how it connects to God's great and good plans in the new creation.

Format: 5 video sections with discussion questions.

TRACK TWO – on Poverty, Justice and Caring for Creation

Based on Ruth Valerio's book 'Say Yes to Life' and the accompanying Church of England Lent resource. We'll look at the

beauty of God's creation and how it points us to him; and at the threats to that creation now and how they link with overcoming poverty and injustice. We'll be thinking about how to be aware and active on climate change at a crucial moment in history and how to hold on to God's love, joy and peace while we do.

TRACK THREE – True Freedom: from sin, idolatry and addiction

This course will explore the biblical view of who we are (in our fallen human nature) and who we could be in Christ. We will

particularly think about addiction in our lives, yes, maybe drink, drugs, sex etc. but also, addiction to popularity, success, social media, body image and so on. This will help all of us struggling in these areas, but also, provide ways to help others who you know who are struggling.
