Special Intensive – A Bible Book ‘Feast’

A truly special Intensive happened in March 2019. We offered 4-days together in Chippenham feasting on John’s Gospel. The ‘Feast’ involved reading and studying John’s Gospel in a number of ways. It was a great week!  In early 2020 we met again and studied Hebrews over four days, and in early 2024 we walked through Ephesians and Colossians!

And now, summer 2024, we’re planning another one… Titus!

When: Saturday July 6th 2024

Special Intensive – ‘The Incarnation’

When: Wednesday November 29th – Thursday November 30th

Where: Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire

Times: 09.30 – 16.30

Suggested Donation: £60

What is the incarnation and why is it important? Is it just a Christmas thing?
Join Cor Deo for two days of rich discussion and study about the glorious truth of Jesus’ incarnation! This opportunity is an ideal way to be launched into the advent season with a heart full of hope and love for God.
We will explore and examine this topic biblically and historically, with our usual focus on relational application.

Women’s Intensive: ‘Enjoying Jesus’

We held the first ever Cor Deo Women’s Program in February 2016 and met each year until 2020. After going online during the pandemic, we’re excited to continue in person after a really enjoyable week in 2023.

The Cor Deo Women’s Intensive is a unique opportunity for women from all walks of life to spend a week together (5 days) experiencing and enjoying the richness of Jesus!

We will ponder together how our God, his Word, and the Gospel that he offers are even more wonderful than we often grasp.  Why is our understanding of who our God is so important? What does it mean to live in relationship with Him?  How does our relationship with Him affect our relationships with others, our work, our ministries, and our lives?

We’ll consider these questions, and others, as we meet together for a five-day Cor Deo Intensive designed especially for women to enjoy Jesus.

2025 dates: tbc, Royal Wootton Bassett

Preaching Intensive

How should we think about preaching? What does it mean to preach Christ? What is the process for preparing a message?

All those who teach the Bible, (whether in a local church setting, on university campuses, or elsewhere, whether from the pulpit or not), are welcome to join us. As well as studying the Bible together, we’ll explore the preaching process and how to preach Christ in multiple ministry contexts.
When: TBC

One-Week Intensives

Join the mentors for a week-long exposure to Cor Deo training.  Typically starting on Tuesday and ending Friday, we will have four 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, whatever their context. 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.

Where:

Intensives are held in Chippenham, or potentially in other locations.  We start each day at 9.30 and end at 4:30.  Local accommodation options can be discussed for those travelling from a distance.

Who:

We have room for up to 15 men & women. To register your interest in participating, or if you have any questions, please contact us.

When: tbc

If you are interested in joining us in Chippenham for an Intensive please contact us.
