Discipleship Explored

Last night we kicked off on a new programme of Fellowship Groups across (and even outside) the parish. Small groups of Christians are meeting together to study Psalms, Daniel, Ephesians, and in the Upper Room, Philippians through Discipleship Explored.

Discipleship Explored is, as the name suggests, the follow-up course to Christianity Explored, specifically geared towards new Christians, but suitable for all Christians who want to grow and mature in their faith. The format is similar, with group discussions, and the DVD presentations.

The first session is on being Confident in Christ, from Philippians 1:1-11, and specifically verse 6: 'And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.'

This is my first real exposure to the ... Explored material, and I'm impressed with the DVD presentations and the supporting material for group discussion. Barry Cooper presents the talks in the DVD series, filmed in and around London, and helpfully explains the passage and some of the implications, before the discussion questions help participants to apply it to their lives and situations.

The next session is in two weeks time, and hopefully I'll remember to blog on it too!
