‘Beyond the Walls’ is a 6 session course based around the content of my book, Go: Everyday Stories of Stopping to Love: The aim of the course is to encourage, equip and empower you to share the Father’s heart with people you meet and to carry an expectation for His Kingdom to come.
Beyond the walls of the church, whether at work, at the shops, having our hair cut, sitting in a coffee shop, or just out on a walk, the Father has people for us to meet and share his love with if we will say yes to him. This is the commission Jesus gave to his disciples and now to us too; to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel wherever we go.
Here’s what others have said…
Ben from Bedford “Doing this group was such an encouragement to me. I grew in faith and confidence and expectation. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to see more of God’s Kingdom coming around them. You will be inspired and equipped and loved.”
Jo from Peterborough “If you are passionate about seeing the Kingdom break out in your everyday life then “Beyond the Walls’ is a great place to be equipped and encouraged. The size of the group is small and intimate and so sharing stories and practicing prophesying over each didn’t feel intimidating. There are activations that involve stepping out of your comfort zone and there is a What’s App group for sharing stories and encouraging each other: I found this to be one of the best aspects of the group.”
Dan from Esslingen, Germany “I loved the course and can highly recommend it. The meetings were uplifting and the challenges between the evenings were very helpful for staying focused. They gave us opportunities to step out in boldness and encounter God’s guidance as well as see him working through others. I found it so important and helpful to hear stories from others.
My favourite story happened when I asked the Lord to show me, who he had prepared like ripe fruit; a “person of peace”. The very first person, who came into my surgery was a lady, who visited to talk to me about the asthma medicine her company was offering. I simply started by asking how she was doing. I have not experienced anything like this before but immediately it led to a deep talk about faith. I told her that I had a hope that reached beyond death, and she was very open and interested. In the end, she said, “I want you to talk about your belief to 50 doctors!” We are now preparing this talk and it will take place on the 4th. of October this year.
Since doing the course I have started a group in our town and we are using the same challenges. At the moment we meet once a month, but I feel, we should meet more often to keep the momentum going.”
Jo from Bedford “Claire’s faith and expectation for God to move in us and through us in our everyday lives are inspiring and motivating. The huddle is so encouraging and has spurred me on to take risks and practice what I have learned!”
Ruth from Thame “The Evangelism Huddle helps to raise awareness of the Father’s heart for us and for the lost. It was a brilliant way to grow in confidence and learn from others in bringing Jesus into everyday situations with people. It has encouraged me to keep asking the Father what He sees in those around me and how I can speak heaven into their lives and reveal his heart for them. I was recently able to do this with someone at work and I have had other opportunities to pray with people. Since finishing this course I have started a similar group. Claire and Gill are brilliant encouragers, women of faith and courage, and have so much to impart”
Doro from Hannover Germany “I felt really supported by the group on What’s App. We shared testimonies and encouraged and cheered each other on to step out. Gill and Claire modelled honour and trust and the way they led us, prayed for us, and spoke into our lives was really inspiring. I would do the course again any time”
Here’s a story from Jo from Peterborough...
“I was in a superstore buying some makeup and I built up a rapport with the assistant who shared stories of her previous work and employment with me. She was a very experienced lady who had a real love of people and excellent customer service. I told her this as I wanted to call out the gold in her just like her Heavenly Father would. Our conversation developed and she told me she was due to have a surgical procedure in the near future and had recently felt some anxiety which was unusual for her. I knew that the Holy Spirit wanted to minister to her so I told her I was a Christian and asked if I could pray. She was very grateful and agreed and in the middle of the store, we held hands and prayed. It was beautiful and she told me that she felt something come from me which I was able to tell her was the Holy Spirit. What I love most about stepping out is that it is very easy to believe the lie that nobody wants to hear about what God wants to say to them or receive prayer but I find that most of the time they really do. It’s an exciting way to live looking out for opportunities to partner with the Holy Spirit each day.”
