Choose two workshops for the day
Expertly led and topically focused time designed to help us understand just how critical inspiration is in enabling our Christian witness and living.
Melinda Wells – Healing Prayers
My intention is to focus on “Inspiring” us to prayer for physical healing. What animates, enlivens, and uplifts us.
Sue Sinclair – Sharing Faith Naturally
"You made a bridge and Jesus walked over it into my life." We love Jesus but most of us find it hard to talk about him, so let's explore how we can make it happen especially when doing the things we enjoy doing together.
Mandy Carr – Intentional Encounters
Discover how a sanctified imagination can become a place of encounter with the living God. Sharing experiences from her book, ’The Beach’, Mandy shows how to find our own Secret Place where we can dwell with God and discover the unconditional love He has for us all. This is a place of revelation, healing, play, creativity, challenge, and deep intimacy. It is about discovering who we are as daughters of the King and helping us to leave behind the things that hold us back.
Amanda Bedzrah – Biblical Inspiration
This talk will focus on how we can get true inspiration from Gods word and apply it practically to our everyday lives today. 2 Timothy 3:16 (NLT): "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right."
Join Amanda to dig deep into the word of God.
Angela Painter – Be the change you want
Angela will share a few personal stories and musings on the topic of inspiration and change, but this will also be an interactive session where we will explore together;
who and what has inspired us?, the difference between admire and inspire, the meaning of "Inspired to be the change you want to see in the world", and how inspiration can transform our lives and the world
Angie Petrie – Inspired Prayer
Angie will encourage you to use your imagination in prayer, through visualisation and the exploration of other creative ideas. You will find answers that will inspire and guide you in your present relationship with the Holy Trinity. Before questioning your ability to be creative, be assured that if you can imagine the door to your home, that’s as creative as you will need to be.
Bethan Walker – Inspired Youth Stream
Can we process emotion through acting? Can we be healed through improvisation? Can drama help us love and support one another when walking through anxiety? Does God use our creativity to challenge and grow us? Yes He does.
You don't need to be an extrovert to act, we all have a story, and we all have a gift, come and explore yours with professional actress and drama coach Bethan Walker, founder of The Drama Club Tunbridge Wells.
