Equip Sunday Seminars

Sunday seminars followed by evening worship and a short practical talk from the Bible

For a four week period we will be holding seminars on Sunday evenings (5pm - 6:20pm) followed by a time of worship until 7pm. There will be a Children's & Youth track (crèche-year9) - please bring a packed tea for your child to have during the session. (Sign up deadline for the Children and Youth track is 20th Jan)

Five seminar tracks for adults and a programme for children and youth - running for 4 consecutive weeks:

Please arrive 10 mins early so you can find your seminar room. Seminars are available on a first-come first-served basis as some rooms have limited capacity. Each seminar track will have four consecutive studies - ideally attendees should not swap between tracks

1. Engaging with Islam

Wendy - Double room
week 1 - A brief overview of Islam, Muslim values and cultures.
week 2 - Building bridges of friendship with Muslims.
week 3 - What is good news for Muslims?
week 4 - How can I share with my Muslim friend?


2. Identifying your spiritual gifts

Michael  - Double room
God has created each of His servants for a unique part to play in His Kingdom. As part of the local Body of Christ, in Highfields, your part is essential in the outworking of our ministry together. S.H.A.P.E. is a tool developed by Rick Warren for understanding more clearly your unique part. It looks at our Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Ability, Personality and Experience to enable you to more clearly understand the role God would have you play in Highfields. Join us at Equip and discover your SHAPE.


3. Sharing the Word with Confidence

Elspeth - Coffee lounge
The Bible belongs to every Christian. The Word gives us life and is the means of our growth. It's to dwell in us richly and to be at the heart of how we encourage one another. That means that our small bible study groups are key. This stream will help us to grow more confident in handling the word for ourselves and seeking to share it with others. It will be particularly suitable for those who would like to learn how to lead bible study groups, or who are existing leaders and would like to brush up on their skills, but all are very welcome to come.

Session One: Getting to the heart of a passage
Session Two: Asking questions that apply to the heart
Session Three: Engaging the group – managing group dynamics
Session Four: Caring for group members.


4. Christianity at Work

Jon - Chapel
For some of us, work is a means to an end, for others it consumes our thoughts, passions and even our identity. But what should our attitude to work be? How does the gospel apply to my job? Is it wrong to strive for the top? How do I handle difficult work colleagues? What does it look like to be a Christian boss? During this series we are not only going to look at sharing the gospel in the work place, but will also look together at God's purpose for work in order to understand our problem at work, see if we can find a model for work in the bible, and hear from specific people about how the gospel impacts their particular area of work.

Session 1: God's Purpose for Work
Session 2: Our Problem with Work
Session 3: A Model for Work
Session 4: A Messenger at Work

The hope is that through our time together we will see that the gospel can transform how we do what we do, releasing us from the cultural pressures around us and offering us a work ethic that provides us with great freedom to serve Christ.


5. When sinners say 'I do': Marriage enrichment

Dave & Sally - Dalton Street
Come and think with us about how you can cultivate a marriage that is based on more than romance and shared interests. Learn how the cross should be the centre and foundation of each of our marriages as heart issues are addressed daily with mutual grace and humility. There'll be lots of space for discussion as couples, as well as reflection exercises to do as homework each week.


Youth (11+ year olds): 

Jess & Team - G.F Room
Lots of fun and games and a look at a stroppy prophet and God's heart for the world in the book of Jonah. Youth can arrive from 4:45pm and can either be picked up from the GF room at 6:15pm or can make their own way up to the chapel to join parents. Please let Jess Sanderson know by 20th January if your young person will be coming.


Kids (0-11 year olds): Inside Out - What the Bible says about my feelings

Jo & Team - Pierce Hall
We will be learning how Jesus is our redeemer, playing games and doing activities as we go through the book of Ruth. Drop off from 4:45pm in the Piece Hall and collection from 6:15pm in the chapel. Please bring a packed tea for your child to have during the session. Please see Jo Deeley to sign up by 20th January.


Children can be dropped off from 4.50pm, with food provided for them from 6.00pm – 6.20pm.

Behold our God

Behold our GodFrom January to March on Sunday mornings we are looking at the book of Exodus.

"And the Lord said to Moses, "I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name." Then Moses said, "Now show me your glory." And the Lord said, "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence."
