The MEMBERS area is for registered fee paying students of: Kingdom Life - Living Essentials - Rock Solid - "Pursuit of Freedom".
Within the MEMBERS page we have updates of the previous weeks lesson, for re-cap or study purposes. Because of the sensitive nature of the course, we will not be recording the sessions.
All the other pages are MODERATED, with free access. Media / Sales will be for none registered access.
Pursuit of freedom format covers 50/50 ratio of practical workshops and theory. Whilst each semester has a different focus, each semester builds on the previous one.
Registrations include the manual, assessments, and group consultations on three subject areas:
1. Spiritual Gifts Questionnaire
2. Gift deployment Questionnaire
3. Freedom from oppression
Registered students will have access to the on-line data base which matches and collates answers in order to provide a pattern of gifts and applications in areas of service.
These records provide the student with a clear picture of where and how to serve through spiritual gifts. They are personal to you, although they do support the pastoral team in providing opportunities of appropriate areas of service in the body.
Welcome to SEMESTER ONE of PURSUIT of FREEDOM!
PURSUIT of FREEDOM
"You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free" John 8:32
Pursuit of freedom is the key to living life to the full. We are born captive, but choose freedom, and the pursuit of freedom is a life long commitment to follow after the liberty that truth brings.
Gal 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery".

Our individual uniqueness requires us to identify what our gifts, talents and personality types are.
80% of the worlds population learn better through a "hands on" approach, and yet 80% of our learning institutions are theoretical in application.
Understanding is about application. Our courses are designed to cater for practical instruction in discipleship.

1 Timothy 4:15 "Throw yourself into your tasks so that others may see your progress".
Progress is visible, and we should not only be growing, but being "seen to grow". The Christian life is a life of influence, and the best way to influence is by our lifestyle. What we DO is always more impacting than what we SAY.
Our growth track enables you to connect and then develop into your God given purpose. Find your place in the process, and your on your way.
PURSUIT OF FREEDOM - Semester one will commence on February 13th 2020. Reserve your place now!
The course is four unique semesters which is a mix of 50% practical and 50% theory. The course builds into providing a practical awareness of our gifts, where and how to use them.
We will begin with an in depth look at how our belief systems, can betray us into robbing us of true freedom. True freedom set us free.

Are These Courses Available To None Eden Members?
As part of our vision to build the church, we are fully committed to growing you. Kingdom life is not about attracting followers, it's about building people.
At Eden, we are committed to walking you through our growth plan, and helping you find your best kingdom fit.
Knowing God is the first step on the journey
Finding a level of freedom helps us in...
Discovering your fit which ultimately leads to...
Making a difference.
We would love you to find your place in a kingdom expression, so we invite you to join us in making a difference.
"We are a church whose vision and
culture is committed to a kingdom
perspective. That means we extend
who we are, beyond the boundaries
of where we are".
All of our Thursday evening courses are open to people who share the same kingdom vision as we do, but may not be part of our local church.
Some specific courses are designed for in-house
training and development. These courses are for our own leadership teams.
Through the year we have specific events with great speakers, which we open to all. Keep in touch with events and contact the team for more information.
Let us help you to find your "fit" in our vision.
EDEN has a well designed growth track which we provide for all levels of maturity. Whether you are looking for answers, learning what Christianity is all about, or a serious student of Gods word, we have a place for you. The best place to start is our Friends and partners of vision courses, which help you to connect and understand our local church.
Commencing from 13th February each Thursday (2020), we will continue to follow the second phase of our vision statement "To find freedom" by including FOUR semesters and FOUR topics. (as seen in the diagram). Freedom is often taken for granted, and unless we have experienced freedom from oppression, the chances are we are not aware our freedom is restricted. Pursuit of freedom is focused on a personal encounter with God, His word and Spirit, through a life givng relationship with Jesus. Inner freedom is an important aspect of the gospel. Have you fully experienced that freedom?

I never thought study could be so much fun. I hated school and always felt dumb. Since I completed my course, I now have a real desire to do more.
So, so practical that I can't wait for the next course to start. The bonus for me was making some good friends that helped me fit into my new church home. I love it and feel like I can start all over again
Great way to find out about myself. I thought I knew myself, but boy, so much was revealed by Gods Word.
Never did well at school, so studying and doing tests and homework was real scary. I did it, and now I realise that in God we can be a finisher.
