Church Life

We are a community of people who have been captivated by Jesus. This affects our everyday lives and everything that we do, not just our meetings. Here are some of the groups that operate throughout the year at various times.

Alpha

Alpha is an 11-week course that creates a space, online or in person, where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about faith, life and God.

We are currently running an Alpha course but there is still time to join us or you can register your interest for the next course.

CAP Debt Centre

The Debt Centre provides free debt counselling – offering hope and a practical solution to anyone in our town and surrounding area who is struggling with unmanageable debt.  Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a national charity that we work in partnership with to offer a combination of face-to-face home visits, budgeting advice, debt management, creditor negotiations, insolvency services and befriending.  We deliver a holistic and in-depth debt counselling service to those in need.  The church established the centre alongside 4 other local churches and CAP has trained members of these churches to equip them to deliver the service that also involves church volunteers helping the Centre Manager in a variety of ways.

Contact CAP on 0800 328 0006 for further details

Connect

Connect is a faith-based, daytime group open to the community for all ages.  Activities include tea parties, a Christmas dinner together at the University and a Canal cruise is planned later in 2017.   Connect enjoys hosting many different speakers, provoking discussions each week, with the purpose of connecting everyone to God and each other.

Connect meet on a Wednesday: 2pm-4pm

The EHS Course

This course is based of Peter Scazzero’s book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.  Our spiritual health is directly linked and tied to our emotional health. This is a path of learning that gives us new tools to grow and mature in both.  It is a lifelong development.

It is not about emotional healing or digging up the past but about learning to love and live well.

The Emotionally Healthy Spirituality course is a great way to:
Connect with God

Getting closer to him in stillness during weekly sessions of contemplation and experiencing his heart for you in an intimate way.

Connect with Others

Learning to trust others by becoming vulnerable, finding a totally new level of friendship, feeling you belong, are understood and accepted for who you are.

Connect with yourself

Understanding your reactions, your strengths and being authentic.

Encounter

A group that meets together for a supper and Bible study every other Friday, 7-9pm at Brendan and Sara’s house.  This group has a close working relationship with the Huddersfield University Christian Union.

Contact Jubilee Centre on 01484 551551 for further details.

Our Everyday World Stories

We will be continuing to give people opportunity each month on a Sunday morning to share something about how they get to express the life and love of God in their everyday world.

Sozo

The Bethel Sozo ministry is a forgiveness ministry provided at Community Church, Paddock to helping you to grow in your personal connection with Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Its aim is to produce increased freedom in your life through focussing on truth and forgiveness.

The Ministry started at Bethel Church in Redding California and was founded by Dawna DeSilva and Teresa Liebscher in the late Nineties. All our team are trained and accredited and are based at Community Church which is a registered centre for Bethel Sozo.

Bethel Sozo is simple, spirit led and has proved to be effective for many participants.  It can provide you with a different approach that can help you deal with life issues. Using a range of tools and following the Holy Spirit, wounds are healed, strongholds broken, truth revealed, and “doors” to past issues are closed.  Once barriers are removed, the believer will hear and know God better and experience greater freedom and intimacy in their relationship with God.

  • Sozo is an inner healing/deliverance ministry.
  • Sozo is not counselling but a Spirit- led and effective way to remove deep barriers.
  • Sozo finds issues quickly instead of taking a long time to examine the past.
  • Sozo helps heal and build our relationship with God enabling us to fulfil our destiny.
