The Weekends

Spread over three long-weekends in the year, the course provides in depth teaching in apologetics and the spiritual disciplines. Our aim is to equip each participant to be a dynamic witness in whatever context God has placed them in, by helping them to grapple with the heartfelt questions and intellectual challenges of apologetics, as well as to grow significantly in spiritual life and character. The training is structured to allow for a lot of interaction with speakers and opportunities to ask questions. Meaningful and lasting friendships with like-minded Christians are also forged at the weekends.

Phase 1
