Learn to Unlock the Bible in Gorleston

A free training day is being held in Gorleston next month to help Christians to share their faith in urban areas where traditional bible studies may not be so effective.

The training will be delivered by Dawn Lonsdale, chief officer with Unlock Training, who said, “Our life experience matters; our stories; our joys and sorrows. The Bible has plenty to say - more than we'll ever know - about our lives if we know how to read it and apply it, to 'Unlock' it. For many people, hearing about Unlock's approach brings a eureka moment as they discover a way forward with a fringe group that doesn't relate to traditional Bible studies or formal church meetings.
“This event will unlock real life stories of urban people, reveal Good News of the down-to-earth Christ, and release life changing skills and confidence. This is an opportunity open to anyone across the Eastern Region of England who may be interested in learning more about Unlock's approach to the Bible, giving both clergy and laity insights and practical, hands-on experience in applying this approach to Bible engagement with small groups of oral learners in their local area.”
The event will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm on Saturday February 22 at St Mary Magdalene church, Magdalen Square, Gorleston, NR31 7BZ. Light lunch will be provided.

Organiser Anna Heydon, from Imagine Norfolk Together, said, “I'm working with Rev. Damon Rogers from St Andrew's Church in Lowestoft to bring Unlock training to the east coast. This is an exciting opportunity to learn from Unlock's approach to sharing faith in urban areas, especially where many people don't learn through traditional text-based approaches.”
