What is Deeper?
DEEPER is an annual three-evening conference held in the spring each year. It aims to offer high quality evangelical preaching by inviting conference speakers who share our passion to ‘thoroughly equip’ God’s people today.
Running this event over three consecutive nights enables us to engage with the Bible in a slightly different way than our Sunday teaching allows. The longer time frame hopefully also helps bed deeper roots for all who hear, as we seek to grow as followers of Jesus.
what shape DOES THE event take?
Each evening starts at 7.30pm with a time of prayer and sung worship. This is followed by two sessions of teaching (30-40 mins each) with a short refreshment break in the middle — this hopefully gives you some time to process what you’ve heard and perhaps note down some questions for our speaker. Some speakers also provide notes you can download; recordings of the event are often available, subject to the speaker’s wishes. Click here to find recordings of previous years (select TOPICS).
WHAT ARE IT’S AIMS?
- To help grow followers of Jesus: through in-depth Bible study and direction in how to apply that word today;
- To bless the local Christian community with a free, quality, discipleship event;
- To enable more people to gain access to God’s word by supporting the work of Bible translators.
If you work the words into your life, you are like a smart carpenterLuke 6:48 (The Message)
who dug deep and laid the foundation of his house on bedrock.
