Tonight was the last class in our ‘Christianity’s Big Ideas’ subject with Geoff Thompson as part of the Banyule Network Theology Hub.

Hearing the class respond so enthusiastically about the need to study Theology and how it has shaped them was wonderful.

Thanks Geoff – it was a pleasure to have you with us tonight!

Stay tuned for our Semester 2 subject – ‘Developing a Mission Theology for Today’.

Are you interested in joining one of many small ‘Life Groups’ which are being formed across the Network?

Members of these groups will read the book ‘Holy Habits’ together so as to help each other grow and deepen into our discipleship as we all follow Jesus together.

‘Holy Habits’, written by Andrew Roberts, explores the ten habits developed by the first Christians in Acts. As Andrew explains: “Holy Habits is a way of life for those exploring or already actively living out the call of Jesus to ‘follow me’. It is a way of life for all ages and cultures; a way of life based on Luke’s portrait of the community of followers of Jesus that we see in Acts 2:42–47.”

Andrew Roberts Introduces the Concept of Holy Habits

To express your interest in joining a Life Group, please contact Annie at the Network Office – using the Contact Form

Let her know your name, location and preferred time of gathering and whether you are interested in meeting via Zoom or face to face (when we can!)

If you are prepared to ‘host’ or lead a group, please let her know. Each chapter has very simple questions to encourage lively discussion – leadership will not require much preparation beyond reading the chapter.
