This 6 month course is a foundational journey that uncovers the root of our life experiences through a whole-hearted relationship with God and others. Encompassing teaching from individuals with a vast array of experience and backgrounds, and guided by course material based on theology, psychology and written by a child development psychiatrist, each session grounds and brings clarity to the beauty, pain and complexity of the human experience.
Accompanying each teaching session, participants are invited to grow in awareness and acceptance of both their own individual journey and the journeys of those that have imprinted and impacted their lives, through prayerful dialogue with God in smaller groups and individual exercises led by the Journey UK team.
The ‘Journey of Grace’ holds space for every person to unravel their own story, valuing each perspective and experience, without judgement or pressure. The community that has been created enables a safe place for those who are willing to venture into the unknown; places where love is ready to meet them with new revelations of rest, potential and connection.
The first half takes you through the foundations of faith – Creation/self acceptance, our relationship with the Trinity, family of origin – mother, father, siblings, and peer relationships.
The second half includes sessions on shame, addiction, forgiving others/ourselves, breaking soul ties and freedom from idols. There are also sessions on being sons and daughters and a day for generational prayer.
The course has 26 chapters and runs from September to March mainly on Monday nights and three Saturdays.
