Going Deeper

Awaken

Awaken is a time where we seek God and worship Him on a Tuesday morning at 7.00am in our Lyttelton St site Auditorium. Happening every Tuesday during the school term. Come along, all are welcome! We are excited and expectant to see what God will do in this space!

Boots ‘n’ All

Boots ‘n’ All is a group that will run for males on Thursday nights from 7.30pm – 9.00pm at our Lyttelton St site from October 4 through to December 13 on a two week on one week off rhythm. The group will study a book called ‘Developing Intimacy with God’ by Alex Aronis that looks at Ignatian spiritual exercises. It introduces various methods of prayer and provides step-by-step, interactive prayer exercises that are designed to increase your love for Christ, broaden your self-understanding, connect you with vital spiritual principles, intensify your desire to become more like Jesus and strengthen your commitment to serve him by serving others. Books can be purchased for $23 from Reception or the Info Centre. To register, please contact Warren wread@swbc.org.nz.

Nourish your Life with God

Want to grow in your relationship with God but don’t know how?

Over the next three months, we’re offering a time where you can come and engage with practices that will help you encounter and be transformed by the love of God.

Janna Young and Kathy Viney, two spiritual directors from our church, will be leading this time called ‘Nourish your Life with God’ every second Tuesday from 9.00am – 10.00am in our Lyttelton Street site Auditorium.

These times are open to people from South West Baptist and around the city, so feel free to invite your friends. We apologise that we won’t be able to offer child care and as the sessions contain periods of silence and reflection they will not be suitable to bring children along to.
