What does it say on the tin?

Do you wish … You could discover your gifts; You could live a more joyful and fruitful Christian life; You could serve God more fully; You could become the person God has designed you to be? Take part in exploring “Your SHAPE for God’s Service”!

What will it involve?

“Your SHAPE for God’s Service” involves six meetings in a small informal group. It will be enjoyable and interesting! We will help each other to explore our unique God-given “SHAPE”, and how we can use this in his service. We will look at:

  • Your Spiritual Gifts (God’s unique gifts to you).

  • Heart’s Desire (what motivates and excites you; what you love to do).

  • Abilities (your talents, personal qualities and strengths).

  • Personality (your character, personal qualities and strengths).

  • Experience (your life experiences and what you’ve gained from them).

  • For God’s Service.

Why?

Most of us are very aware of our own weaknesses and failings, and so lack confidence in our Christian lives. We need to discover more of our gifts and strengths, the way God has shaped us, and what we have to offer!

What will we do?

There will be some input from the leader on the topics and on Biblical teaching. There will also be practical exercises, plenty of lively discussion and prayer. Between each session, you will be asked to do about an hour of Personal Reflection and activities to help you discover more about yourself. By the final session you will have created a picture of your “shape”, and gained insights about how God has designed and grown you.
