LifeZones

LifeZones are interactive teaching times that are aimed at helping you in your daily life. We're still finalising the details for our LifeZones in 2020, so please keep coming back to this page as we will update it as we confirm them in Spring 2020. To help you get a flavour for the kinds of subjects our LifeZones tackle we've left details below of our 2019 LifeZones.

Our LifeZones start at around 11.15am after our Family Worship time together. This gives you around 30 minutes to drop your children, get a coffee, chat to friends, or give one of our many volunteers a hug to tell them they’re doing a great job! You can follow one track all weekend, or mix and match – whatever takes your fancy really. All available talks will be accessible online after the weekend. The LifeZones will finish around 12.30pm – if you do have children, please don’t forget to pick them up or arrange for them to be picked up – they get hungry at lunchtime!

2019 LifeZone Themes

LifeZones

Understanding the World Around You

Martin Charlesworth, the leader of Jubilee+ hosted this LifeZone seeking to take a closer look at some current hot topics in our society.

We expect that this LifeZone will take place once again in 2020 looking at some more hot topics.

Over three sessions, in 2019 this LifeZone looked at the following subjects:

  • Friday: Modern slavery and human trafficking - the vital role of the church. David Westlake examined the current situation in Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking, and explored the vital role of the local church in tackling this injustice in our cities and towns.
  • Saturday: Austerity - A coming crisis? - preparing for increasing poverty in our communities. Natalie Williams discussed how local churches can prepare for the community challenges that on-going austerity and economic pressures create, and the poverty issues that churches are encountering.
  • Sunday: Environment - Care of creation and global warming - sideshow or central concern for the church? Martin Charlesworth considered the care of creation and global warming, and asked whether this should be a central concern for the church, or if it is a sideshow that the church should not be concerned about.

Martin Charlesworth

Martin lives in Shrewsbury with his wife Jane and has three grown-up daughters. Prior to leading Jubilee+, Martin led Barnabas Community Church, Shrewsbury and helped develop its strong emphasis on social action and community engagement.

Kingdom of God in everyday life

This LifeZone explored what it is to be true disciples, influencing and transforming culture, and advancing the kingdom of God.

  • Friday: Kingdom of God in Life - developing a whole of life culture
  • Saturday: Kingdom of God at Home - adoption, fostering and respite care
  • Sunday: Kingdom of God at Work - influencing culture

Where has God sent you? And what mission is He asking you to pursue in that place? Many of us have already been sent without even realising it. We are sent into our workplaces, we are sent into our neighbours’ homes, we are sent into schools and universities, we are sent as volunteers serving in the local community – we are sent into our culture. Do you have a vision for transforming your context? What would you need to do to make it happen?

Learning to read the Bible well

This LifeZone helped those attending to stop and listen carefully to what God says in His word. Each session discussed tools which can be used to help you to read the Bible well!

Eugene Peterson thought that reading the Bible was an act of love. He thought that if we love the one who speaks the words, then we’ll want to get the words right.

Alan Rose York City Church

Reading the Bible Well means, among other things, respecting the words enough to use every means we have to get the words right; it means loving God enough to stop and listen carefully to what He says.

This process involves asking good questions about the text we are reading. Questions about its genre, its setting, its place within the Bible as a whole etc. about ourselves and what assumptions are we bringing to this text? Or how does our church experience colour the way we understand this text?

So, whether you are someone who loves reading the Bible, or feels intimidated by the Bible; whether you are reading the Bible to prepare a sermon, write an essay, or just to listen worshipfully to God’s voice, this LifeZone aimed to help and encourage you to read and interpret the Bible with more confidence.

Each session included a discussion of the kind of “tools” that can help us become better readers of the Bible, along with some serious reading and thinking about specific texts from the Bible itself.

Alan Rose

As well as leading York City Church, Alan teaches a number of modules on ChristCentral School of Leadership and is and is half way through an MA in Theology and Religion at Durham University. Alan is married to Susanna and they have a young son, and a Cockapoo puppy called Mustard.

In this LifeZone we discussed tools which will help people become better readers of the Bible!

Pursuing His Presence

This LifeZone sought to inspire attendees in their relationship with God, with the aim of equipping people to grow in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

  • Friday (led by Andy Robinson) A theological and practical introduction to baptism in the Holy Spirit with ministry and Q&A with Dave Fellingham & Graham Pyman.
  • Saturday (led by Jarrod Cooper) A morning with Jarrod Cooper.
  • Sunday (led by Jo McCulloch) What does it look like to take a risk with your prophetic gift? What does it look like to bring a prophetic word in the market place?

The theme of Devoted in 2019 was “The Kingdom of God in Life”. In every area of life, we want to see the Kingdom of God breakout and breakthrough. Fundamental to this is our walk with God, baptism in the Holy Spirit and hearing God’s voice. The Pursuing His Presence LifeZone helped people grow in all these things.

It looked at Baptism in the Spirit – how you can experience the fullness of life in the Spirit that the Bible talks about, and also, how you can help lead others into this too. It looked at gifts of the Spirit, and how you can grow in these, particularly the gift of prophecy, which we are all instructed to eagerly desire (1 Corinthians 14:1). It also gave space for people to practice hearing the voice of God and learning how He speaks to us. The sessions included some prophetic 'activation' to help people in growing in the area of the prophetic.

Jarrod Cooper

Social Action & The Local Church

What are the practicalities and challenges which face local churches who want to serve their communities. In 2019 we took a closer look at the outworking of effective social action in local churches - with Martin Charlesworth & Natalie Williams. To read about about some of the social action initiatives going on in churches across the UK click here.

Martin Charlesworth

Martin lives in Shrewsbury with his wife Jane and has three grown-up daughters. Prior to leading Jubilee+, Martin led Barnabas Community Church, Shrewsbury and helped develop its strong emphasis on social action and community engagement. He is still part of the Barnabas eldership team. He has co-authored two books with Natalie Williams, The Myth of the Undeserving Poor and A Church for the Poor.

Natalie Williams

Natalie grew up in a working-class family in the deprived but beautiful seaside town of Hasting. She was the first person in her family to go to university. After graduating, she worked as a journalist in London and Beijing. She encountered the wonderful mercy of God at 15 and has wrestled with Him ever since.

Natalie now works for King’s Church Hastings, where she oversees communications and social action, and for national charity Jubilee+ heading up communications and policy. Natalie is co-author with Martin Charlesworth of The Myth of the Undeserving Poor (2014) and A Church for the Poor (2017). Natalie will be speaking on 'A Coming Crisis'.

Any gospel which does not embrace both 'evangelism' and 'social action' is a counterfeit, offering either an escapist's dream, which leaves power structures of the world untouched, or a mere social reform which leaves the soaring spiritual dimension of reality out of consideration, and thereby dooms itself to compromise and failure.

Parenting For Faith

Equipping parents to raise God-connected children and teens.

Our mission is to help children and teens develop a lasting and vibrant two-way relationship with God. Whatever your relationship with children or teens, we have something to equip and encourage you to help them connect with God for a lifetime.

We believe parents are perfectly positioned to disciple their children in the mundane, everyday bits of parenthood. But, they can't do it alone. Parents are embedded in networks with extended families and friends and rooted in a church to strengthen and empower them in their call. Parenting for Faith offers a place to hear from other parents, carers and leaders on the journey as well to learn from people who have valuable experience in this area.

Parenting Children for a Life of Faith - Omnibus Edition
An updated version of the book by Rachel Turner - This book provides inspiration and wisdom for nurturing children into the reality of God's presence and love, equipping them to access him themselves and encouraging them to grow in a two-way relationship with him that will last a lifetime.

Home For Good

Home For Good

A home for every child who needs one!

Home For Good's vision is a home for every child who needs one. In the UK, 4,000 children are waiting for adoption and 9,000 foster families are desperately needed. We believe that the Church can make a difference. Home for Good raises awareness of the need for foster and adoptive parents, encourages families to provide loving homes for the children in care, and equips the Church to offer welcoming communities for them. They are dedicated to inspiring, equipping and coordinating the network of local movements, churches and individuals who are making their vision a reality. To find out more click here.

The early church's spirit-filled entrepreneurialism needs to be recaptured. We need a Kingdom of God sized consuming vision that is big enough for the whole church to gather around!

First Aid Taster

A place where you can ask all those "what do I do if" questions...

In 2019 the First Aid Team covering Devoted offered the opportunity for people with an interest in First Aid to gather together for training. During this time, they looked at some basic First Aid aimed at those who want to know what to do in an emergency but have very little or no previous First Aid knowledge. For those who are First Aiders in the workplace or elsewhere they also did some refresher training in order to build confidence.

This training is as always subject to there being no live incidents at the time which will always take priority.

Worship

In 2019 we also had the privilege to be able to host three afternoon gatherings for worshippers, worship teams and worship leaders with Rhys Scott and guests...

Speakers included: David Fellingham, Rhys Scott, Jos Wintermeyer, Nathan and Lou Fellingham, and Ashley Vaughan.

  • Friday - Worship in truth - Nathan & Lou Fellingham
  • Saturday - Worship in Spirit - Dave Fellingham & Jos Wintermeyer
  • Sunday - The Worshipping Community - Rhys Scott & Ashley Vaughan

God wants to encounter us. He desires much more for us than we often tend to think He does, both as individuals and as churches. But how do we step into what He has for us? How do we learn to respond to God and what He's doing?

The Father is looking for worshippers - that means He's seeking you and me. Speficially, He's looking for worshippers who worship in Spirit and in truth. Over three afternoons we rolled up our sleeves and explored our freedom in worship, and what a Spirit-empowered people might look like! The sessions looked at how we can encounter God in our worship and also how we can take steps to grow in our engagement with Him.

This AfternoonZone was for anyone wanting to step into a deeper engagement and a greater freedom. It was aimed at elders who want to help their churches grow in worship, and worship leaders and teams looking to develop their skills in leading the church into encounter with God.

Lou & Nathan are currently working on a new album which is scheduled for release in 2019.
