Free! Recovery Course

A 10 session course, rooted in the book of Galatians, helping the addicted in the church and the surrounding community find freedom and relief in Christ Jesus.

Each session takes a different theme related to recovery, seen through the lens of the Apostle Paul, with a couple of excursions into the Old Testament. A key verse is central together with relevant stories. These sessions are the teaching component of single-sex, mixed issue support groups set up to be safe and compassionate communities, accessible to both believers and those seeking and exploring faith. A facilitation guide plus a participation guide accompany this main course.

The Free recovery course is a well devised and insightful course into looking at what the Bible really says about addiction and sin. For me looking at key scriptures that relate to my addiction offered me real identification with the scripture but also hope of a way to break the chains.Sally and John were able to really go into depth with key questions and I really really recommend this course for those exploring faith as an alternative to destructive behaviour.
