Beatitudes

The Blessed Life of the Kingdom of God

The Beatitudes have inspired countless generations before us to build lives and churches that challenge and change the world in which they live. The truths contained within Christ’s teaching have the ability to bring colour and transformation to the darkest and most troubled situation on planet earth.

Guy Miller wrote the short study book called “The Blessed Life of the Kingdom of God” which was handed out to everyone that attended Westpoint 2018. His heart for the book was that it would unify everyone in Commission and have them all praying the same things, caught up in the same amazing vision. If you were not at Westpoint or did not receive a book, we have made the book available for free download.

As a follow-on to the book, Guy has written a series of 10 blogs (see below) each one also has a short 1 minute video devotional and discussion questions. We hope that you will find each of these helpful in connection with the book, either to be used as personal reflection or in a small group setting.

If you feel inspired by what you read and would like to find out more about how you could play a part in seeing Commission’s vision to see thousands of lives transformed, through hundreds of churches, in tens of nations achieved visit www.commission-together.org/joinin

I am the legal parent/guardian of the above child and I give permission for them to take part in the normal activities of the children's work at Westpoint. I understand that while involved they will be under the control and care of the group leader and/or other adults approved by the organisation leadership and that, while the staff in charge of the group will take all reasonable care of the children, they cannot necessarily be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by my child during, or as a result of, the activity. Whenever medical advice or treatment is needed, the assistance of the event's First Aid team, paramedics or the A&E Department of a hospital should be sought. The Children Act 1989 allows a doctor to provide any necessary treatment by doing ""what is reasonable in all circumstances of the case for the purpose of safeguarding or promoting the child's welfare"". I understand that my child will receive medication as instructed before or during the event. Every effort will be made to contact me as soon as possible should my child become ill or have an accident. My child will be given medical/dental treatment as necessary.
I understand that photographs and videos may be taken during the children’s work at the event which may be used as part of promotion for future events or on social media. I will inform the children’s work leader if I do not wish my child to be photographed or filmed.

Children’s Workers’ Conference

Children’s Workers’ Conference

Sat 20th Oct 2018

Price: £15

Location: Hope Church, Winchester, UK

Time: 9:00 – 17:30

Speaker(s): Becky Peacock, Olly Goldenberg

Who is it for?

Whether you’ve been a Children’s Worker for 3 months or 30 years this is for you! Whether you’ve never been to a children’s worker conference before or have been to many this is for you. This is about receiving fresh vision and inspiration about everything that Children’s Work can be. Get booked in, and make sure your team know about it too!

 

What is it?

Come along to the Commission Kids Workers Conference to catch a vision for a greater move of God in your children’s work. We want to raise your expectations for what ‘normal’ kids ministry can and should look like. Be challenged in your faith for what God wants to do with and through the children you have in your church to reach your neighbourhood, schools, your town, our cities, the nation, and the ends of the earth!

There will be plenty of time for you encounter your heavenly Father as we remember, before any role or job title, we are firstly his children. Let us lead you in new and imaginative activities to help you encounter God, receive freedom, breakthrough, and be released in new gifts. Be inspired by the different creative ways that you could minister and lead your children (and adults!) into the presence of God without neglecting all the fun and freedom that the kingdom of God should encompass!

Brand new for this year we will have seminars digging deeper into the practicalities of how we can run high quality, spirit-filled activities for the early years, and those with additional needs. Included in the seminars is specific teaching which will unpack the theology of children and how the church welcomes and equips them as the most receptive people to the gospel in our community. Our guest speaker will also help church and children’s leaders practically in how to take the next step in building spirit-filled children’s work.

Set aside the day to unpack just why Jesus valued children so highly and said the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. For kid’s workers, volunteers, ministry leaders, and elders to worship, encounter, learn, and grow together in children’s ministry.
