The God Who is There starts in South Africa
The God Who is There is a discipleship programme published by ReSource and adapted from Rooted in Jesus for use in more urban and western contexts, and we have now licensed Growing the Church to print it in South Africa. The first training took place earlier this year in Saldanha Bay, led by Revd Trevor Pearce, and initial responses were very positive. Nigel and Gwen Burns wrote: “This course is for those who are seeking, for new Christians and mature seasoned Christians. It slowly adds layers with simple questions that build up deeper and deeper with meaning. It is a course where everyone is of equal importance and where everyone’s opinion counts. The course is stimulating and uplifting and openly encourages the people attending to let the Holy Spirit mentor and guide them. That is why there is no need for a leader, only a facilitator and guide. Bonds and a feeling of love and open sharing are fruits that grow very quickly. All you need is a willing heart and a willing spirit to leave your preconceptions at the door – for truly God is in control.” To read the GtC report click here.

Alison Morgan is looking forward to speaking on discipleship and the Word of God at the Anglicans Ablaze Conference in Johannesburg from 2nd to 5th July, and will be spending a day at St Luke’s church, Orchards on Saturday 28th June to offer training on The God who is There.
