What To Expect...

What to expect

Building Strong Foundations is a Christian Spirituality course that interweaves Christian faith practices of scripture reading, prayer, testimony and worship alongside counselling models as a way to explore and strengthen participants in their personal relationship with God and themselves.


Private reflection time during each of the sessions invites participants to engage with personal, explorative questions. Counselling models have been used to shape the questions, helping deepen self-awareness. These answers are written in journals and kept private from the group. 


The course involves group discussion and activities where information is shared at a general level. Personal disclosure is at the liberty of the participant and protected at all times.

Building Strong Foundations is suited to participants aged 16+ years. Everyone is welcome wherever they are at on their faith journey. There is a maximum of 20 participants on the course.
