The Training Ground is a course designed by a group of evangelical churches in East London to help Christians of every sort both to grasp God’s word and to share it more clearly – whether at home, at work, at church or wherever you are
The first Training Ground programme began in September 2015, and will finish this July.
With God’s help we plan to repeat the course again over the next two years, beginning in September 2017 and finishing in July 2019.
There will be 18 sessions per year on alternate Saturday mornings during term time, from 8.30 am to 11.00 am. The course takes place at Osborne Square Church in Dagenham.
The course costs £240 per person for the full two years. This includes not only the teaching but also textbooks, course notes for each session, tea, coffee and biscuits. Recordings and notes can be accessed on our website.
Costs can be paid in annual or termly instalments. If you want to participate but have a problem with the cost, please let us know.
Over the two year programme we cover six main topics, three in each year
Looking at a number of contemporary features of the culture around us so we can understand better the things influencing us and the minds and hearts of those we are communicating God's truth to.
Issues we face as Christians in the UK, including the challenge of atheism, the LGBT issue, the media, and many others.
