You'll Get Through This

Hope and help for your turbulent times. God will deliver you and use your mess for good.

In this six-session, video-based study, Max Lucado offers refreshing assurance for anyone facing trials. Consider the story of Joseph-tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned. God weaved what was meant for evil into good. He is in the business of redeeming the broken. He was then. He is still. Do you crave some hope for these tough times? Then this is the message you need.

In a society where manhood is rarely understood, ManMade is a resource to help teenage boys become young men. Boys rarely mark the transition into manhood, they simply drift into their adult life. ManMade is a resource that unpacks this transition with six core values, based on the life of Jesus.
The Daniel Plan

40 days to a healthier life. Feast on something bigger than a fad. 

This six-session video-based, small group study from Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen, and Dr. Mark Hyman is centered on five essentials that will launch your journey to health: faith, food, fitness, focus and friends.

With support from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick Warren and thousands of people from his congregations started on a journey to transform their own lives. It’s called The Daniel Plan and it works for one simple reason: God designed your body to be healthy and he provided everything you need to thrive and live an abundant life.

Making Good Sense of the Bible Together – with a foreword by Dr Paula Gooder, writer and lecturer in Biblical Studies and Theologian-in-Residence for Bible Society – is a six-session introduction to biblical interpretation, ideal for small group participation as together you dig deeper and explore the Scriptures. These studies will help you read the Bible with greater understanding, examine the authors’ original meaning, engage with the biblical message and discover what it means to you today.
Living Well: Contented Human Life in all its Fullness

Course book including CD: ‘A course to be set up by a church or group of churches, aimed at reaching out... to those on the edges of faith... keeping in touch for a year, learning from them and encouraging them to explore without a sub-agenda of commitment’

Centred around breakfast or lunch, the course ‘aims to offer people from a diversity of backgrounds a fresh way of looking at ordinary daily living, affirming our humanness in the context of God’s love . . . and celebrates the privilege of being alive . . . Some may go on to be prepared for a faith commitment  . . . but this course is simply laying some foundations and showing that God’s love breathes right through our humanness and makes it sing.’
