Equipped for serving

Network is a non-validated programme for:

"Equipping God's people for service in today's world within their local church"

Network SpeakerNetwork equips men and women for ministry in today's culture. The course deepens four aspects of service: Bible understanding, Heart devotion, Practical skills and Teaching God's Word. We recognise the vital role many have within the local churches. Our desire is to equip the local churches in Wales with Gospel hearted and Bible trained servants.

Network meets at Highfields Church, Cathays and is held on Tuesday mornings between 9.00am and 12.30pm, with an optional track for teaching the Bible from 1 to 2pm. The course runs for three semesters, each of ten weeks, starting on 25th September 2018.

Studying the BibleThe course consists of four tracks focusing on: developing a heart for God, an overview of the Bible and foundational doctrines, development of skills for local church ministry and an optional course on teaching God's word accurately within today culture. Each of these will be taught by qualified teachers with evangelical convictions and experience. There will also be opportunity for guests speakers to bring their understanding in key areas and a one day special seminar of contemporary issues.

Network is open to men and women from any denomination who wish to be better equipped for ministry in their local church.

Since the first course in 2004, more than 180 students from more than 40 churches across South Wales have benefitted from Network.

The Network courses are taught through lectures, discussion groups and interactive classes. Some preparation is necessary most weeks but there are no formal exams.
