For any young adults living within striking distance of London, Soul Food is starting another Life in the Spirit Seminar this week – details copied below. You can see the website here. They are a great group, and I can highly recommend them.
The Life in the Spirit Seminar is a series of talks, worship, scripture, sharing and testimonies that helps us to encounter God’s immense love for us. It opens us up to the power of the Holy Spirit so that we can deepen our personal relationship with Christ and receive the gift of freedom and happiness that he wants for each one of us.
What is the structure of the Life in the Spirit Seminar?
The Life in the Spirit Seminar is made up of 9 sessions and will run mostly on Thursdays from 7 to 9pm at St Charles Borromeo Church, Ogle Street, W1W 6HS:
19th Jan: Session 1 – Welcome and Witness
26th Jan: Session 2 – The Father’s Love
2nd Feb: Session 3 – Search and Rescue
9th Feb: Session 4 – Salvation through Jesus
Fri 10th – Sun 12th Feb: Weekend Retreat at the Wycliffe Centre in Buckinghamshire, covering sessions 5 to 7.
Session 5: New Heart, New Spirit
Session 6: Come Holy Spirit
Session 7: Learn to walk, Learn to run
16th Feb: Session 8 – Life in the Spirit: Prayer
23rd Feb Session 9 – Life in the Spirit: Sacraments & The Church
The format for most sessions will be praise and worship, followed by teaching, personal testimonies and small group sharing. The Life in the Spirit Seminar is a journey of discovery undertaken together as a community so, to get the most out of the series, it is key that you are able to attend all the sessions as well as the retreat weekend.
Please take this opportunity to invite other people who you feel will benefit from attending the Life in the Spirit Seminar.
The weekend retreat takes place from the evening of Friday 10th February until the afternoon of Sunday 12th February at the Wycliffe Centre in Buckinghamshire.
Although the Life in the Spirit Seminar is free, there is a charge of £135 for the weekend retreat [snip…]
What if I cannot attend the weekend retreat?
You will get the most from the Life in the Spirit Seminar by coming on the weekend retreat but if you cannot come, you are still more than welcome to register and attend the Thursday evening sessions. We will make specific arrangements for people in this situation.
Can I come just for the weekend retreat?
No. The retreat is designed to consolidate and build on the teaching from the Thursday evenings, the scripture prayer programme and the small group sharing over the weeks preceding it.

Yes please – how do I register?
