WHO IS IT FOR?
What is it?
FREE! is a 10-week recovery course plus a workshop that provides a safe place to explore life-controlling issues and allow them to be transformed by the hope 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 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.”
Who is it for?
It is open to anyone who is struggling with an addiction, compulsive behaviour or other destructive habit, or anyone who wants to learn more about them. 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.
If you are struggling with an addiction to drugs, alcohol, pornography, sex, gambling, self-harming, over-eating or some other compulsive behaviour that is spoiling your life, the course content could help you. If you are not sure that you are addicted or compulsively using something in an unhealthy way - please contact us for a chat, or pop along to a session.
The next online session begins on SEPT 2nd, 2021.
Zoom links found here:
The group meets for 10 consecutive weeks on Thursday evenings from 7 pm to 7.45pm for live online teaching session. Then from 8 pm to 9pm for a Zoom support group (single sex mixed issue)
Missed the beginning? Never mind you are welcome to come along to any of the sessions and any group anytime throughout the year. (We review and provide support throughout the year).
We provide an environment for you to learn to know the Christian God, who, if you want Him to, is able to transform your life. Even if He is someone you are not ready to get to know yet, come along and discover that there are principles that can really help in your fight to overcome your addictions.

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.
