Saurday 25 June 2022, 11.30-6pm
Do you… Dare to dream about your destiny in God?
Realise that your dream demands development?
Want your life to make a difference?
A Taster Day is your opportunity to find out more about DNA and what is on offer. There is no commitment, just come along and see what God has in store for you! DNA is a passionate community of people who would love to journey with you in your Christian discipleship and leadership development.
Click here to register for the taster day.
Discover more about God, be nurtured into greater wholeness, and put it all into action. The possibilities are endless.
DNA runs for a year, with an optional 2 further years. You can join us full or part time, with oversees placements a possibility.
They also run DNA Lite - a 3-month online course. The course works really well as a stand-alone course, but it can also be done as a taster before doing the full DNA year. It can be done by individuals but is also really well suited to people doing it in a small group. For more information, click here.
