Our Speaker
Amy is currently studying Theology at Oak Hill College in North London. She was previously a women’s worker at St Helen’s, Bishopsgate in the city of London, where she helped to train Bible study leaders and disciple women. She enjoys studying the Bible one to one with women and helping them know Jesus better through the scriptures. In her spare time she likes to cook middle eastern food, and is learning to make quilts. One day she hopes to own a dog.

We will be running two seminar sessions, one in the morning after the first talk and one after lunch. On your booking form please indicate your preferred choices along with a reserve.

Seminar 1 – Preparing Bible Studies from the letter to the Colossians. Amy Wicks will take us through how to prepare bible studies from the letter to the Colossians.

Seminar 2 – God’s care in Dementia. An opportunity to think through how to care for people with dementia. We will explore biblical perspectives, how dementia could be embraced in church life and how to keep loving relationships going. Led by Sophie Duncan.

Seminar 3 – ‘I could never do it!’ Equipping you to go from fear to faith in telling others about Jesus. We all feel terrified at the prospect of telling people about Jesus. Solution: With biblical principles and practical ideas, we’ll excite, equip and encourage each other in doing this better including how to run a Christianity Explored course or mini event at home. Led by Fiona Austen and Sally Surrey.

Seminar 4 – What is the purpose of marriage? Jane Davies will help us consider what the bible teaches us about God’s purpose in designing marriage, and how understanding this helps us live for Him in the up’s and down’s of our married lives.

Seminar 5 – One story, One Saviour: Christ in the Old Testament “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, Jesus explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.” Luke 24:27. Sophie Gower and Abi Hoban will help us explore what is exactly said in the Old Testament ‘concerning’ Jesus? Is it important to understand what the Old Testament says about Him? What difference does this make to my daily walk with Jesus?
