Semester 2, Block B begins Friday 9th Spetember, ends Friday 28th October | 9:45am - 12pm
Encore is an initiative of Morling College, held on Friday mornings at our Sydney campus and livestreamed online. It is designed for people who are retired or no longer working full-time to continue learning about God with like-minded people. There are no academic requirements or assessments for Encore. Every new stage of life has its challenges and possibilities, and it is in an open learning environment that people bring their life experience, skills & knowledge to explore the following areas:
- Engaging Bible teaching – challenging your own journey with God
- Asking the tough questions – about life’s big issues
- Faith in action – in your family, communities, local and overseas
What does Encore look like?
The program has a mix of lecture-style presentations and more discussion-based seminars.
Each Friday morning will have the same structure:
- 9.45am - 9.50am - Welcome, prayer and announcements
- 9.50M - 10.45am - Session 1
- 10.45m - 11.05am - Morning Tea
- 11.05am – 12 noon - Session 2
We will meet in the Ministry and Learning Centre at our Sydney campus (5 Saunders Close, Macquarie Park) and also via livestream. Parking is available.
Semester 2 Dates:
- Semester 2 Block B: Fridays Sept 9, 16, 23 and Oct 14, 21, 28
ENCORE Bible Teaching Sessions:
Session 1: In pursuit of Paul
Using a series of videos created by Dr Con Campbell (New Testament scholar, musician, seminary professor, and author of Paul and Union with Christ) our speakers in Session 1 will help us uncover more of Paul's remarkable life. We will look at the transformation in his own life, in the people he worked alongside, and in the communities that he visited during the journeys he took to share Christ across the Mediterranean world. Each week as we explore an aspect of Paul's life will help us consider what it means to fight the good fight, run the race and keep the faith (as Paul says about his walk of faith in 2 Timothy 4).
Session 2: “What in the world is God doing?”
This is a question many of us have asked, maybe with changing inflections or emphasis on certain words. Throughout the scriptures, God calls us to see and hear what He is doing, to take note and be a witness. In these sessions we will hear from people who are doing just that. Hopefully these sessions will both challenge and encourage about ways we can join with God in his Kingdom work in and around us and throughout the world.
Join us for a special end of year lunch of October 28!
We aim to keep costs low so that you can attend whatever your financial situation. Please let us know if you would like to attend but do not have the finances to be able to come - we don't want you to miss out!
