Obstacles to Spritual Growth: an Overview

An introductory session to a 6-part teaching course on the 'blockages' and difficulties which disciples of Jesus face on the road to maturity and righteousness.


Introductory Evening

(without further obligation)

ObstaclesEvery follower of Christ comes to faith from a background lived in the fallen world; and every believer struggles at one time or another in the life of faith to stay true to their calling in Christ to live the abundant life.

In this context it is hoped to run a 6-session course developed by David Masson looking at the issues which Christians face on the road of a disciple.

The course, run over 6 evenings is designed to examine those (very common) problems which can prevent a believer developing into all that God would have them be.

Additionally the sessions are designed to assist believers in reaching out to others in their own circle – whether within the Christian community or beyond.

In order to allow those who may be interested in attending the series of six studies, an introductory evening is planned as an opportunity to gain an overview of the topics. There will be no obligation to commit to anything further, but arrangements will be made which will take account of any preferences expressed on the night.

Anyone and everyone who would like to attend are invited to be in touch so that a suitable venue (in the Inverness area) can be booked. The venue for the course itself will also depend on the numbers who enroll for it.
