FREE! RECOVERY COURSE
The 10-week recovery course
explores significant and essential topics in the relief of addictions and life-controlling issues, with compassionate community and biblical insight to explore freedom in Christ.
WHO IS IT FOR?
What is it?
FREE! is a 10-week recovery course plus a workshop that provides a safe place to explore the slavery of life-controlling, addictive issues and allow them to be transformed by the hope and freedom of Jesus Christ. The following themes are explored:
Week 1: Life is out of control
Week 2: Relapse (relationships and lies)
Week 3: Triggers and temptations
Week 4: False idols
Week 5: Gratitude
Week 6: Circumstances, choices and consequences
Week 7: The lies we tell ourselves to justify our behaviour
Week 8: We are children not slaves!
Week 9: Freedom
Week 10: Outward bound
Week 11: Battlefield of the Mind Workshop
These biblical and Christ centred themes are intended to be explored in community, an essential component of moving into the freedom and transformation that only Christ can give.
This is a journey that is rooted in the book of Galatians. It parallels the concepts found in this book especially slavery vs. freedom. Our verse for the whole journey is Galatians 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.”
If you would like to begin a Free! support group ministry in your local church/community, or begin a conversation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who is it for?
The groups are intended to be open to anyone who is struggling with an addiction, compulsive behaviour or other destructive habit, or anyone who wants to learn more about them. (A local church community may decide the types of issues they can personally handle and those they may need to signpost elsewhere). We have had many Christians,(including church leaders) who participate for a season or two and return to their church groups, able to serve and participate more effectively as they discover freedom themselves.
It is intended to provide an environment for participants to learn to know the Christian God, and we encourage participants to come along and discover that there are principles that can really help in your fight to overcome their addictions.
TRAINING and CONSULTING
This is not just a local church work. It is a world wide church work! Local church local community anywhere!!! We are willing to train you and people in your local church how to run a similar ministry to fit your local church and those in the local community to find the vital freedom they need in Christ. Both face to face and online.

Please note: If you are currently participating in any therapy or counselling, we would recommend that you contact your counsellor or therapist before attending to see whether they are happy for you to participate in a programme at this stage.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
This course should be mandatory for every Christian. The community built through the course is what church is really about, being authentic, real, honest and surrendering to Christ in our humility and brokenness. No pretence. There is so much freedom to be found through this course.
This course is come as you are. No fingers pointed. Made me cry when I got home as I had never felt something so real like this before. Discrete prayerful realness.
This is a great course to understand and become aware of addictive behaviour and how to overcome those addictions so you can live in freedom.
