Combating Cappuccino Christianity:

“Stop living in the froth – start living in the coffee”

A brand new resource created by SEBA. Discipleship material to help you review your work with children and young people and the churches response.

This is what people have said already:
•       This will make an excellent preaching series – Minister
•       I have been looking for something like this for ages – Local youth worker
•       I want this in our association – Regional Minister from another Association

Want to know more? Give me a call and I will be happy to come to your church. But be warned, this material could seriously challenge the life of your church - Maeve Whitchurch. Go to the contact page now =>
