deeper 2020 – *cancelled*
We are sorry to announce that we have taken the decision to cancel Deeper next week as part of our church response to Covid 19. We will look to rearrange this once the current viral climate is more stable.
John has been in full-time Church leadership since 1987. Though called to the UK, John has ministered in almost 40 nations of the world. Based in his local church New Life Church, Scunthorpe, he has authored thirteen books and currently serves on the Apostolic Team of One Church Gloucester and wider network, while also being released to teach to a wider translocal context. As a leader, teacher and author John has a passion to equip and inspire leaders as well as empower followers of Jesus into effective lifestyle and service.
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.
Deeper is delighted to be a member of the Keswick Fellowship
Each year we invite a guest speaker to take us deeper into God’s Word, either by focusing on a topic, a doctrine or specific section of the Bible (see below for previous years).
Running this event over three consecutive nights enables us to engage with the Bible in a slightly different way than our Sunday teaching allows. And the longer time hopefully helps bed down deeper roots in all who hear as followers of Jesus.
Deeper has three aims:
- To 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.
Why not join us for the next event?
If you work the words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who dug deep and laid the foundation of his house on bedrock.Luke 6:48 (The Message)
