School of Witness 2023

The inspiration for the image on the poster is the image of a bird bathed in light breaking free from the reins of the world (depicted by the lightbulb and the red thread). The invitation from the Lord for this upcoming School is to break free from the things that hold us down and entrap us, and to move into the light of Christ where we can live in the freedom found only in Him.

The School of Witness is an 8-week live-in discipleship school for young people (18 to 30 years old) that aims to provide an environment of faith in which young people can be encouraged and challenged to go deeper with Jesus, to grow in awareness of who God is and who they are.

As we move out of the pandemic and into a new season of new hope and freedom, let us be courageous to move out of darkness into His wonderful light, to be available and open to allow Jesus to pour His love into our hearts.

If you are tired of finding a way to deal with things and settling for things that do not last, if you are feeling lost in the artificial lights the world has to offer, if you desire to break free of whatever is shrouding your sight, sign up now for the School of Witness 2023. Allow Him to restore your souls, restore your hope in Him and make His home in you!

Registration closes on Monday, 5 Dec 2022!
