THE LOOP

BIBLICAL COUNSELLING UK

by | Dec 10, 2023

Last month I shared the exciting news that four people from Emmanuel Community Church have started the North West Gospel Partnership training course. Well this month I’ve got more training news!

Katie, Sara and Fran are all going to be starting the Biblical Counselling UK course in January 2024. I think this is really wonderful as it is adding more people to the church who have biblically-shaped pastoral wisdom and care. You may also be aware that Dot, Jenna, Chris and Cathy have started or completed the training, so we have a growing team of people who can help others, in those difficult seasons of life, to navigate through them with a gospel-shaped approach.

Please pray for Katie, Sara and Fran and why not ask them, from time to time, how things are going?
