Glyndley Manor Training & Ministry Events – May & June 2023

Explore is a series of weekend courses designed to train and equip God’s people through a journey of learning, understanding and personal transformation.


Together we will find that there is hope and help for the issues we struggle with in everyday life – issues of anxiety, stress, physical pain, emotional distress, problems in relationships, addictive behaviour and depression to name just a few.

Those who journey through Explore will grow in their personal relationship with the Lord but also become better equipped to help others as they learn how to minister in the love and power of God to those in need.

Each of the events in the series will include time for worship, biblical teaching, group discussion, activities and opportunity for prayer.

 EXPLORE A3: THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS                           19-20 MAY

When Jesus spoke from the Cross, “Father forgive them”, He released to humankind an immensely powerful key for restoration from the bondage of pain from the past. For true freedom we need not only to receive God’s forgiveness for our own sinful actions, but we need to extend forgiveness to all those who have hurt us, however difficult this may be.

Unlocking this pivotal Kingdom principle, this course we will explore the damage caused when there is unforgiveness, judgement and bitterness in our hearts and how to face the many challenges of applying this key to the painful areas of our lives. Breaking the subject down into four main principles and looking at each one will highlight just how central a topic this is to our wellbeing, not just spiritually, but how it can also affect us emotionally and even physically.

Throughout the course there will be personal times with God for Him to bring conviction, healing and restoration from the damage that unforgiveness can inflict upon you, unlocking a pathway to true and sustained healing.

God told Jeremiah to tell the people to plant gardens. What does that mean in 2023?

Do you have a well tended garden, an allotment plot or the seed of an idea for creating a community garden, perhaps even in the grounds of your church?

The experiences of others may be a great guide to you as you move forward. One of the most experienced churches in these matters is found at Hazelnut Community Farm, a groundbreaking project in Bristol. See below for more on them.

John White is an Anglican vicar who has a passion for meeting outdoors, and the many ways that we can appreciate and care for God’s earth. He is visiting Eastbourne on the 25 April to speak about how we reflect our faith through commiting to creation care. For directions go here

He will be speaking at the Gather Community Garden at 6.30 pm, to make the most of the natural light. The time will start with a simple meal together. If you are able to bring a contribution of food and enough to share with others, on your own plates, that would be great. We will have some salads, bread, etc and refreshments available.

We’re looking forward to a good and relaxing time together around the table.

Perhaps you could let Sharon know at if you are able to be there for the event on the 25th.


Local Churches Invited to Hear Wayne Drain

Local Eastbourne congregation, the Gather Community Church, is sponsoring the visit of Wayne Drain to Eastbourne on Thursday 20th April. It will take place at the Elim Church in Hartfield Road at 7.30pm. Wayne Drain has been a friend of several Eastbourne leaders and pastors for over 20 years. Wayne leads a church not dissimilar to many of ours in Arkansas, USA. He is appreciated for his gentle but highly accurate gift of the prophetic. He is also a singer, songwriter and worship leader.

Please be planning to attend. God may have a word for you, but quite apart from that you will learn how God blesses and strengthens the people of God through this particular gift of the Spirit.

Are You Mindful of Christ?

Victoria Baptist Church and Mindful of Christ Ministries have an in person event and course coming up. Would you be able to add these to the church notices, website, Social Media and/or newsletter at all please?

‘Who do you think you are?’ FREE workshop on Identity in Christ, 15th April, 10.30-12pm

Do you know in your heart, your true identity in Christ?
Who do you think you are? Really?
Do you believe that you’re a burden, no good, fearful, useless, unloved, or even worthless and perhaps doubt what God says about you?
If these beliefs are all too familiar, then you are invited to this free in person Christian Transformation Workshop, ‘Who do you think you are?’
We will have a look at those beliefs and begin to reframe them, so you can begin your journey into knowing who you truly are and that; you are a Child of God, you are loved, you do have a purpose, you are wonderful and you are valuable. Ultimately gaining clarity and deep assurance of your identity in Christ.
This is an in-person event and will take place at Victoria Baptist Church in Eastbourne.
