Come and relax together with other families, other children, other teens and other parents. There are friends to meet and there is fun to share. Our age appropriate Bible teaching will introduce the children to Jesus, let the teenagers discuss Christian issues and give adults time to soak up and reflect on Scripture. Full board is a great help on a family holiday as you can now all relax, turn up for meals and all enjoy the great facilities we have to offer in your spare time. We also provide evening “Baby Listening” for children under 7 years old during the evening meeting. Either staff will monitor corridors or we will give you a baby monitor depending on the location of your bedroom.

Summer Studies

01 - 07 September 2018

Capernwray Hall, Carnforth LA6 1AG

View on map

Summer Studies is a good combination of three Bible teaching lecture series from three different teachers. After a welcome on Saturday we ease into Sunday with two teaching sessions – and then Monday comes. Three lectures in the morning and one evening session ensures that we quickly gain momentum in taking in a lot of teaching in a short space of time. And then the afternoons…. we need to relax, or be active. Some want to sit and process, others prefer to get out and exercise. We are all different – and so this week offers various options to suit you. Summer Studies delivers the teaching to equip you along with the afternoon and late evening activities for you to enjoy. You can relax in the pool and sauna or walk the grounds or chat in the coffee shop.

PLUS – if you want some more structure to the week then add on an option to get you walking, cycling or developing your artistic or musical talents.

Waverley Abbey House, Farnham, Surrey GU9 8EP

New Testament ‘pastoring’ aimed to develop people’s walk with Christ, not merely alleviate short-term pain or discomfort.

This course will help you examine what you are aiming for in your church’s pastoral ministry and evaluate how you are doing.

Come and understand the scope of pastoral care according to Scripture, how to expand your care, and how to equip carers for the long haul. Led by Andy Peck.

We worship the God of the ‘immeasurably more’ – a God who takes the little we have and transforms it by His power for His glory. Our heavenly Father longs for us to share in the abundance of His love and grace, and to live in that abundance and allow Him to work in us. Through teaching, worship, fellowship and sharing together on this weekend, we hope to get a fresh glimpse of God’s abundant love and provision for us. Led by Lynn Penson and Rosie Morgan

20 Years of Naujavan

15 September 2018

The Bushey Academy, Bushey, Hertfordshire WD23 3AA

View on map

Naujavan was born in 1998 with a small gathering on the South Coast of England and suddenly, almost quietly, a movement began. So much has happened; stories re-written, lives brought together, miracles and moments of great joy. At every turn Jesus has been faithful and challenged us to go further, reshape the culture and reach out to those who might never otherwise hear or understand his message. We’re uniquely made and placed to do what only we can do. There isn’t another person like you and when we’re united together in the family of Jesus there’s nothing that can stop us. Join us for this truly special event where we’ll learn and laugh together, seeing what God has done over these years and set the vision for the years to come. There will be great teaching and inspiration, loads of time to worship and pray and the chance to connect with the Naujavan family, old and new. Normally Naujavan events focus on younger people, but this event is open to anyone interested in what Naujavan is about. We’ll be sharing miraculous stories of God at work in the South Asian community over the last 20 years and this will be a welcoming space for those who don’t regularly go to church too. Unfortunately, we can’t provide any childcare facilities at this event, but there is plenty of space in the large atrium if kids are present and get restless. If you want to bring a group from your local church and need a little help, head to our website for some useful promo materials. If you’d like to sign your group up at church and collect money on their behalf (saving them the hassle of doing it online) we have an information pack which can help. Please email Katrina (katrina@naujavan.com) for this.

Making Technology Work: Transforming Relationships in the Workplace

19 September 2018

St Peters Church, W1G 0DQ

View on map

We live in a global workplace where time zones and office hours have become largely irrelevant. Ever new technologies allow us to communicate at a moment’s notice anytime day or night with colleagues and clients all over the world.

Regardless of how we view these developments, we can see some truth in the old adage that ‘we shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us’. It has always been this way. From the production of the first implements for farming onwards, men and women have been required to navigate the relationship between their daily work and the development of technology.

It goes without saying that technology has revolutionised the way we work and the way we communicate – but are they changes for the better? Recent reports suggest the experience of many in the workplace is one of isolation from colleagues and disconnection from managers, where relationships are regulated by an increased dependence on technology. Others point to the way technology overcomes distance, and promotes sharing and collaboration.

Christians with our belief in a God who is personal and relational, and who serve a Christ who called us to love God and neighbour have a vested interest in the flourishing of good relationships in the workplace.

Join us for an evening with LICC’s Charles Hippsley and Antony Billington and guests. We’ll explore biblical wisdom around nurturing good relationships, and use this to help us see how technology can either help or hinder relationships in the workplace. The evening will be suitable for all those interested in looking at how changes in technology are impacting the way we work and exploring the distinctive insights Christians might bring to this issue, and will involve a combination of input and interaction.

Bible Discovery Weekend: Faithful Living in a Faithless World (Isaiah 6-12)

21 - 23 September 2018

Waverley Abbey House, Farnham, Surrey GU9 8EP

View on map

In the post-modern, secular, West, the Christian Church is a marginalised minority group. How should we react? Become an introspective and defensive ‘holy huddle’? ‘No’ – says Isaiah of Jerusalem, speaking to God’s people in the eighth century BC - a word which is also for us. Don’t despair. God’s word is able to create a prophetic community, living faithfully, not fearfully; living hopefully, sustained by a vision of God’s kingdom coming with God’s anointed King as the centre of attention.

‘Isaiah said these things because he saw his glory and spoke of him’ (John 12:41). Join us for a faith-building exploration of Scripture.

Coaching Skills Workshop

25 - 27 September 2018

Kings Park Conference Centre, Kings Park Road, Northampton NN3 6LL

View on map

An interactive three-day workshop to strengthen interpersonal abilities by integrating coaching skills into all areas of HR, member care or pastoral work. The Coaching Skills Workshop is designed for those engaged in pastoral and personnel activities, to increase their effectiveness and apply new skills in this vital task. It is an approach even seen to be used by God in his dealings with some people in the bible. Such skills can help individuals understand how they might overcome obstacles and achieve goals in their personal or professional lives. Drawing from Dr. Keith E. Webb's book, The COACH Model for Christian Leaders, this workshop delivers practical skill development through high-quality, interactive coaching training, and has been used effectively in over 20 countries around the world.

Paul Lindsay will be leading the workshop along with Janice Wilburn. Both are trained and accredited coaches and work at the heart of Global Connections Options Coaching service. Paul is also licensed with CRM to use and teach the COACH model material.

The 3-day programme will focus on integrating coaching skills with existing leadership roles. Church leaders and HR people alike have testified to the great value of integrating these skills into their work.

Through a high level of interaction, and lots of practice, participants learn key coaching skills, such as listening, using empowering questions, developing actions and follow up. Each participant will receive a 50+ page workbook.

We believe those who complete this programme will be more effective in supporting others to develop their potential in all areas of life and to take action to accomplish that which matters most to them.

How can we hear God’s voice in our daily lives? We will explore what God is saying to His people through the stories of biblical characters to see how we can hear the voice of God in our daily lives. Anne and Clare will be revealing that when God is working in our hearts, He aims to align us with His purposes and wants us to be led by the Holy Spirit into all that He has planned for us.

Get a wider prophetic perspective on what God is doing in the world and then the courage to step out and use the gifts God has given you.

We hope to see lives transformed, encouraged and emboldened by what the Lord is saying to the Church collectively and to each of us individually.

Led by Anne Calver and Clare Lambert

Anne is a Baptist minister, author and speaker. She is passionate about God's Word and Spirit: seeing Him transform lives and release people's potential. Anne is married to Gavin and they have two children.

Clare Lambert is a church leader, author and youth worker. She is involved in prayer and healing ministry on the streets.

Waverley Abbey House, Farnham, Surrey GU9 8EP

Our mental health matters. Our own emotional health can’t be healthy without honesty. It’s OK not to be OK.

Patrick Regan seeks to open up conversations around topics that many find difficult, such as trusting God when life is painful, dealing with anxiety and depression, learning to look after ourselves, developing our character and living with thankful hearts even in tough seasons.

Examine the strength in letting go of our need to be in control, as well as how we can stop comparing ourselves to others and instead live authentically and honestly as we grow into the people God created us to be.

Led by Patrick Regan OBE Patrick is founder of Kintsugi Hope, and the founder and president of urban youth charity XLP. He is the author of five books, and hosts the When Faith Gets Shaken programme on TBN.

We all have a story

When we testify of God’s goodness in our lives, our words can bring life to everyone who hears them. Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.” By simply sharing our story, we can help others overcome doubt, fear or confusion. We can show people - and ourselves - how far we’ve come, while glorifying Jesus.

Our Men’s Day is a time to do just that, and to gather the lads together to explore, listen, catch up, meet new people – and to hear their stories. You can choose from 12 different seminar topics, from sport to mental health to habits, plus great worship, interviews, discussion and some phenomenal keynote speakers. And to top it off, we’re so excited to host this event at the magnificent Liverpool Cathedral – the largest in the UK and described as a ‘safe place to do risky things in Christ service’! So come along, invite your mates - those of faith and those yet to find faith - for a day you won’t want to miss! Seminars Include: Being a superhero to your kids dad | Steve Legg How to run a men’s ministry in a local church | Mike Hindley The crucible of friendship | Nathan Blackaby Faith and sport Men’s mental health – depression, failure and the road to life | Paul Gask Strengthening marriages | Mark Melluish Creating a church that men enjoy coming to | Lee Jennings Plus many more!
Tickets are £17 until the 9th September 2018, and £22 thereafter

Insight into Shame

19 October 2018

Waverley Abbey House, Farnham, Surrey GU9 8EP

View on map

Shame is an important topic, not least because the origins of shame can be traced right back to the back to the Genesis texts: Genesis 2: 25 “Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame,” and Genesis 3: 7 “At that moment, their eyes were opened and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness, so they sewed fig leaves together.”

Shame affects a person's mental health and it has also been shown to impact a person’s physical wellbeing, with research showing that shame can have a powerful impact on stress responses.

Whether you struggle with issues of shame or would like to better understand how to support someone else, come and consider the ways shame can impact a person's life and the ways that shame can trigger depression, anxiety and stress.

Please note: Some of the material presented overlaps with course training on the Waverley Diploma/BA year 2 course.

Introduction to Biblical Care and Counselling

View on map

Understand yourself and others from a biblical perspective, with the aim of developing and expanding your listening skills. The Introduction to Biblical Care and Counselling (IBCC) five-day course teaches basic counselling principles within a Christian context. It is designed for anyone who wants to learn about themselves and how to help others effectively, no matter how much or little previous knowledge and experience they have. It is a reflective course; interactive and personal, using practical methods and theory.

Most people need help at times as they journey through life. A sympathetic listening ear is always appreciated, but sometimes people need more. You can be equipped to play a part in the lives of those who are struggling, enabling them to move forward and discover the freedom to grow into all that God desires them to be. Over the five days you'll cover topics including: * The biblical basis for care and counselling * Reason and causes for problems * Developing basic counselling skills * A clear framework for the counselling process

The course is ideal for anyone who is: *Looking for basic training for pastoral care *Wanting to help people in everyday life *Running a small group *In part-time or full-time Christian ministry *Thinking about full counselling training

The IBCC provides excellent foundational teaching as a stand-alone course, but is also an ideal opportunity to find out if a Counselling programme with Waverley Abbey College could be the next step for further training.

Introducing Israel

22 - 29 November 2018

Israel

Staying in Jerusalem and around Lake Galilee you will visit many of the principal biblical sites of the Old and New Testament. Travelling by private coach with a local guide you will experience an introduction to the Holy Land that will be captivating. Each day holds opportunities for the stories of the Bible to become clearer though discovering the layout of the land and the customs of the culture. From the wilderness outside Jericho of the fields outside Bethlehem, onto the Mount of Olives and Calvary each day unlocks biblical truths. Heading north we sit on the hillside overlooking Galilee and even take a sail on the water. An unforgettable experience.

Christian Aid and the Bishop of Birmingham invite you to join them for an opportunity to explore how you can be supported to develop a more values based business which has human flourishing and care for creation at it’s heart.

Sophi Tranchell, Group CEO Divine Chocolate, and Salt Member, said ‘Bringing together business people who recognise the opportunity business has to address both the causes and outcomes of poverty, and share their experiences and learn from each other, has powerful potential and could be a real catalyst for change.’ Christian Aid is working to eradicate poverty across the world, and is coming up with some innovative ways to do just that. We are inviting business leaders to work with us, and with each other, to tackle global poverty. The new Salt Business Network is open to anyone who owns a business, or is in a senior management position within a commercial organisation.

Great Chapters of the Bible - Paul's Prayers of Thanksgiving

28 November 2018

View on map

The popular Great Chapters of the Bible series covers some of the most significant chapters in the Bible. Each course covers three aspects of study: the chapter’s significance within its book, its importance within the whole biblical redemptive narrative and the significance of the chapter to Christian life.

Philip will be focusing on the theme of Thankfulness, beginning with the Psalms and then focusing on Paul’s prayers in Ephesians; then in more depth, his prayers in Colossians through which letter Thankfulness runs like a thread.

Capernwray Hall is a beautiful place for a holiday at any time of the year but at Christmas we pull out all the stops! When we add the Christmas trees, lights and decorations to this grand manor house – when the fires are lit and when the house fills with adults and children it becomes a spectacular place to spend some cold wintry days. As we join together and celebrate Christmas we can never forget the arrival of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem. Our Bible teaching sessions for adults, teens and children ensure that we celebrate not only His birth, but His life and His continual presence in our lives. Join us to celebrate in style!

We believe that every woman has a special God given purpose. We have a passion to see women engage in their community and know that you can change your world just by being yourself.

Join us at Horwood House for MODIFY 2019. Our theme takes us to the heart of what Activate is all about- reaching the lost. As Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:20-22, the way to do this is to find common ground, embracing what is similar with those you meet, without compromising on truth. Like a chameleon, we can adapt and modify our ourselves to make ourselves more approachable, more welcoming, without changing who we are and what we believe.

To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 1 Corinthians 9:20-22
