Discipleship courses at NBC

Encounter Together is your once a year opportunity to be involved in discipleship courses at NBC. For 5 weeks in May you will have the opportunity to be equipped in an area of discipleship: spiritual gifting, evangelism training, pastoral care, marriage enrichment, or Bible study

Each night will start with a time of community and dinner together. We would encourage you to come down between 7:30 and 8pm to grab a bite to eat and enjoy time to connect with others in the NBC family. From 8pm-9:30pm courses will run each Wednesday night as we pack out various rooms around the church.

We would invite everyone in the NBC family to be a part of this unique opportunity to be encouraged and equipped as we go deeper in our faith together! For more information contact the Church office or Carrie Robinson on 07966930745.

2019 Encounter Together Course Options

Trained to Explain

Trained to Explain is for those who really want to understand how they can witness more effectively for Christ. It will be encouraging, inspiring, but above all practical. Our prayer is that this course will encourage you, equip you, enable you to open up a conversation, answer tough questions and to lead a person to Christ.

Spiritual Gifting

Interested in Spiritual Gifts? This is a four-week course looking at what the Scriptures have to teach us about spiritual gifts and seeking to identify our own personal gifting. It looks at how God designed us before birth, the motivation and passion He has placed within each one of us as part of the Body of Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit and where ‘talents’ fit into the big picture. We would encourage you to participate in this course to discover how God has uniquely gifted you.

Bible Study

Come hear from Brian Davison as he takes an in depth walk through a book of the Bible. There will also be the opportunity to pray together for the needs of those in our church.

Prepared to Care

A 5-week course to equip us to get alongside others to bring support and encouragement. We will welcome special guests to cover such relevant topics such as:
‘Depression, Emotional Health in Children, Young People & Mental Health, Overcoming Suicidal Thoughts, Some aspects of serious mental Illness’
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to gain further understanding and tools to help others.

Marriage Course

Have you been married for a long time? a short time? engaged? No matter where we are on our journey, we can always do with making an investment in our marriage. We are often pulled in so many different directions. Why not take a few weeks out to focus on each other, realign priorities, and set yourselves up with a renewed sense of connection and purpose in your marriage.
