SIngle parents

Shirley Wadham is creating a group offering specific community and support for single parents. The focus of the group would be to offer spiritual and social support for single parents.

We will actively look to help each other understand we are as a child of God, loved by Him, after a potential change in status from married to single or bereaved; whether it was a recent change or whether that change happened a while ago.

I am a single mum myself and would like to warmly invite any other single parents who attend the Forge to get in touch to see if we can create an open and supportive group to really encourage one another drawing on God’s word for help during the tough times and the good.

When: TBC
Where: Mostly online and WhatsApp with meet ups when diaries & child care permit.

Theopraxis Course

Monday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:00pm

This course happens five times a year in four week blocks at Stonham Baptist Church

Theology isn’t acquiring knowledge. It’s becoming more like Jesus.

Over the year we will cover five distinct subjects, each in a four week block. This course is for those who want to explore faith and theology more comprehensively; it’s an evening of content and chance to discuss in conversation.

Perfect for those that want to dig a little deeper.

Alpha course

Alpha is perfect if you (or someone you know) is interested in exploring faith, asking the big questions about life and finding out more about Jesus. This course is completely FREE course that runs for about ten weeks, designed for those who want to explore the meaning of life in a safe & non judgmental environment.

The evening starts by an informal meal together where we get to know one another and catch-up on life. We then watch a short video together followed by the oppertunity to work through a series of questions and to ask anything you like.  The course is really well put together, very relaxed & great fun. 

Why don’t you come along & try out the first evening just to see whether this could be for you?

Disciple Course

Disciple is a short term group – running for just 12-week. Together we will work through the new Freedom In Christ material; ‘Disciple’.

Disciple is an extraordinary journey discovering who you are in Christ, enabling you to take hold of the freedom He has won for you, and to walk in your God-given mandate.

If you are feeling stuck in your faith, struggling with repetitive behaviour that you know isn’t healthy for you, or simply want to go deeper in your faith, then this is the short term group for you.

Maximum number: 9 adults
When: Mondays 8pmWhere: Debenham
