All are welcome to Cor Deo events!
Join the mentors for a five day exposure to Cor Deo training. Starting on Monday, and ending mid-Friday, we will have five days of intensive study and fellowship together. This opportunity is ideal for those who would like to get a taste of Cor Deo’s ministry, but can’t join the full-time team. Together we will enjoy hearing God’s heart in His Word, engaging in enlightening study of church history, considering the applicational aspects of serving others in a relational faith, and thinking about spiritual formation if Christianity is centred on relationship with God.
Intensives are held in Chippenham. We start each day at 9.30 and end at 4:30. Local accommodation options can be discussed for those travelling from a distance.
We have room for up to 18 men & women. To register your interest in participating, or if you have any questions, please contact us.
Tuesday August 16th – Friday August 19th: ‘Relational Faith’
In this week together we will explore the wonder of the Gospel, and what it looks like to be a Christian. What are the basic contours of Christianity – not only in terms of what we believe, but also in respect to versions presented to us. How can we enjoy a vibrant relationship with God today? One week together, but a lifetime of implications to explore and enjoy. We have reserved some spaces for teachers and students. This week has a suggested donation of £150, including lunch each day.
If you are interested in joining us for this Intensive please contact us.
Throughout the year we will offer one or two-day ‘Focus Seminars.’ These are part of the ‘Cor Deo Plus’ program but are open to all. The seminars will be on a variety of subjects, such as history and Bible, with pre-reading and an optional post-seminar assessment. We suggest a donation of £30 per person per day, which includes lunch.

A short seminar-style session, with plenty of discussion and refreshments! Cor Deo Bitesize is free of charge, but there will be an opportunity to contribute to Cor Deo.

More are planned for the next academic year…
Cor Deo Preaching Seminar
