Fan The Flame – a Guided Course in Discipleship

Fan The Flame is a course intended for established Christians who want to press on and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Five units each contain five sections including a brief introduction, Bible readings, questions to consider and suggestions for prayer and practical activities. At the end of each unit, perhaps weekly or fortnightly, the participant meets for 1-2 hours with a Guide to discuss and reflect on what they have been learning and discovering.

Fan The Flame has been used in a number of churches with now more than 100 participants. It has proved to be an excellent way for mature Christians to stretch themselves and for ministers to open up worthwhile discussions with their members.
