SUMMER SCHOOL 2020: 25 Dec 2020 – 2 Jan 2021, Blue Skies
Bro David Bailey – Philippians: Let this mind be in you
Philippians is a much-loved epistle. Many of our favourite quotations come from it and we hang them on our walls. But, we shouldn’t see it as just nice sayings; it’s an epistle that should be meditated upon.
Paul inspires us to focus on Christ: to see our elevated place in him, and our responsibilities in him. He helps us with how to view our trials from both outside and within the ecclesia. He helps us to “work out our own salvation with fear and trembling” so that we allow God to “work in us both to will and do of His good pleasure”.
Paul shows us true motivation as opposed to Judaism and modern philosophies that look like Christ but lead us away from him. He shows us the mindset we ought to develop.
He asks, Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.
Bro Brendon Clark – Hannah. Handmaid of the LORD.
She is one of the most courageous, inspirational, and visionary Bible characters.
Hannah saw all that was wrong in Israel and in her profound love for Yahweh and the Truth, and despite the position of women in Israel, committed her life to outworking the will of the LORD to change it, to the giving up of her firstborn son.
She saw the future of the priesthood, the redemption of her people and the deliverance of Yahweh and committed her life to Yahweh’s work in both small ways and large.
Although a woman of deep Biblical understanding and unswerving devotion to the Truth in Israel, in her humility she saw herself simply as Hannah, a handmaid of the LORD.
In six studies, we hope to understand her remarkable place in the history of Israel, and her extraordinary example to us.
Junior school: First session: Judges. Second session: Geography of the Land
For Junior School this year, God willing, the children will be looking at the period of the Judges. They will be inspired by the example of faithful men and women and learn of God’s righteousness and lovingkindness.
For the second session they will be considering the geography of the land – the cities, rivers, mountains, to build a better understanding of the land promised to the Fathers.
Children under 15 years old must be part of a family group who are responsible for their behaviour. The age for dormitory entry is 15 years.
Your attendance should be planned for the full duration of the school. If for some reason you are unable to do so please provide full details with your application form. Any who wish to attend on a regular daily basis should make prior arrangements with the committee.
