If you can't make our Urban Preaching webinars in June

Hi,
We've got some wonderful people signed up our Urban Preaching webinars starting next Wednesday. There's also some wonderful people who have said they'd like to, but can't do Wednesday nights. Some of you have asked if I'll be doing another preaching series in the future?

I'm not planning on doing another series on Preaching until 2020, because I want to focus on other webinars and training days that will build upon what we've already taught on the UMP. BUT if anyone wants to work through the Urban Preaching materials this June, but at a time of your choosing, here's a possible solution:

1) Sign up for a month's access to the 2013 UMP Preaching course.
2) Order the accompanying Workbook
3) Watch each lesson online on the same week the relevant webinar occurs. 
4) Join in our discussions about it each week in our Facebook group.
The total cost of this is £25 (1-4). If you want to do this, please pay with the paypal button below (make sure you give me your youtube account email address so that I can give you access to the videos in youtube).

Preaching to the Heart in the Urban Context JUNE WEBINARS

I'm really excited to announce our June webinars in teaching the Bible.
These interactive webinars will further equip you to present a Bible passage to any group of people, in a way that engages their hearts, whilst being faithful to the text. It encourages you to consider the people in your context, and how to best present God’s word to them. At the end of this module you should know how to:

  1. Preach to people’s hearts, rather than their heads.
  2. Preach to a variety of people from different backgrounds.
  3. Walk people through a Bible passage in an engaging way.
  4. Make good sermon applications that are rooted in the text.
  5. Point people to Christ.

Wednesday evenings 8:00-9:30pm

5th June 2019, Preaching to the Heart: How to hit the hearts of different subcultures in your neighbourhood

12th June 2019, Walking Through A Text: How to explain a Bible passage to people with varying educational backgrounds.

19th June 2019, Pointing to Christ: How to show the Bible passage's relation to Christ.

26th June 2019, Starting & Ending Well: How to make engaging introductions, conclusions, and applications.

Total cost is £35, which includes a workbook we will mail out to you before the webinars start.
You will need a broadband internet connection, and a device with a webcam and microphone (tablets and computers are fine, but best to use a plug in headset/hand's free to reduce background noise).

If you want to book your place on the webinar through PayPal, please click the 'Add to cart' button below, alternatively contact us at our website.

New Urban Catechism web page

We’ve just created a new web page that makes making disciples with the Urban Catechism even easier:) http://www.urbanministries.org.uk/catechism.html

Our new page contains the following changes:
1) Info on the Shorter Catechism (a quicker way of getting through the catechism).
2) Training videos to get you ready for each catechism question.
3) Worship videos to accompany some of the catechism questions.
4) Info on Parts 2 & 3 of the Catechism
5) Info on the Image Bearers discipleship course.

If you’ve ordered a catechism in the past, bear in mind that you’re eligible to join our Urban Ministries Facebook group. Contact me here, or find me on FB if you want to be part of that.

What do we trust God for?


 “I trust,” says the Christian, “in a triune God. I trust the Father, believing that he has chosen me from before the foundations of the world; I trust him to provide for me in providence, to teach me, to guide me, to correct me if need be, and to bring me home to his own house where the many mansions are. I trust the Son. Very God of very God is he—the man Christ Jesus. I trust in him to take away all my sins by his own sacrifice, and to adorn me with his perfect righteousness. I trust him to be my Intercessor, to present my prayers and desires before his Father’s throne, and I trust him to be my Advocate at the last great day, to plead my cause, and to justify me. I trust him for what he is, for what he has done, and for what he has promised yet to do. And I trust the Holy Spirit—he has begun to save me from my inbred sins; I trust him to drive them all out; I trust him to curb my temper, to subdue my will, to enlighten my understanding, to check my passions, to comfort my despondency, to help my weakness, to illuminate my darkness; I trust him to dwell in me as my life, to reign in me as my King, to sanctify me wholly, spirit, soul, and body, and then to take me up to dwell with the saints in light for ever.”
