Crosslinks Summer Series: Love Thy Neighbour

Crosslinks is hosting an online summer series over three evenings in June. We will be encouraged by mission stories from church leaders, supporters, partners and those recently return from the field. Rev Nick Jones will open God’s word for us as we think of how we can ‘Love Thy Neighbour’.

The Summer Series will be premiered on the Crosslinks in Ireland Facebook page on Monday 8th June, Tuesday 9th June and Wednesday 10th June at 7.30pm. For further details contact ireland@crosslinks.org or call 028 9079 6028

New online class from the CITI: Spirituality for Christian Discipleship

CITI is delighted to announce a new initiative aimed at offering resources for Christian discipleship to lay people. Over four weeks in June, institute staff will offer a one-hour virtual class online.  This four-week course offers resources for your spiritual life and opportunities to learn new practices of Christian discipleship to resource your faith during social distancing.

Weekly meetings through Zoom led by members of CITI’s academic staff will include a presentation and interactive discussion about practices of Christian spirituality and will conclude with an exercise or activity for you to try at home. By gathering, praying and learning with the same group of Christians weekly, you will also receive encouragement and fellowship and offer these gifts to others.

Monday mornings
11.00am–12noon
Beginning 8 June

When you sign up, you will be given an easy link to enter the online classroom.  The class is free during Covid–19 restrictions but is limited to 25 participants.

Soul: An online course from Christianity Explored

From next Tuesday, yKea will be running Soul, an online course aimed at teenagers and young adults exploring what it means to be a Christian. Starting from the 21st April, videos from this course by the same people who created ‘Christianity Explored’ will be shared to the yKEA facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/YKEAnet) with an opportunity for young people to ask questions and have them answered.

 

We hope that this course will be an encouragement to our young people. Helping them to become grounded more deeply, through the Spirit in the truth of the Gospel. If you are interested and would like get a digital copy of the handbook and bible study material, please get in touch with Damian Shorten, our Diocesan Youth and Children’s co-ordinator at d.shorten@dkea.ie.
