On Sunday we announced that in partnership with Alyxs from the YMCA we will be running a Journey to Freedom group. This will be on Tuesday afternoons from 1.30pm -3pm starting on Tuesday 28th February. There is the opportunity to participate in a taster session this Sunday 5th February for around 45 minutes after the morning service. (We will allow time for people to grab a Tea/Coffee/Biscuit and then start). We would like to run more of these groups in the future, and therefore are looking for a couple of people to participate in the course who may have to appropriate gifting to go on to do the facilitator training. The material is Christian based, however very accessible to those with no faith and a great resource for us within the church, and to those in our community. Here is some more information below, if you are interested please let myself or Alyxs Dellaquaglia know. Alyxs has run this group in her role with young people at the YMCA, as well as people in Perth Prison, and this group will be open to all at Trinity, though spaces are limited. I know in my own life God worked greatly through this resource a number of years ago and had a big impact on my journey of faith.
Journey to Freedom is an eight-week group, offering a safe and encouraging place for participants to step out of contemplating change and into real action.
Do you have questions about the purpose and meaning of your life? Are you struggling in new and unexpected ways? Or have past struggles that you thought were over resurfaced? Do you want more clarity and hope for your future?
With honest dialogue directed towards laying a foundation for change, Journey to Freedom creates a common language so that all can share without fear of judgment. This foundational group is the heart of Restore Small Groups’ program.
What does Journey to Freedom address?
Understanding the true nature of hope
Recognising and responding in a healthy way to your feelings
Silencing the inner critic, learning self-love and overcoming toxic shame
Identifying healthy relationships
Grieving unresolved and unspoken loss
Healing the past and seeing new possibilities for the future
Finding connection and universality in the human experience
Creating a Plan of Change to help move forward to next steps
