A Gospel-Centred Community

Crosslands Foundation at HBC

One of the real joys of theological study, is the chance to grow in our love and understanding of the gospel; allowing for heart and head knowledge to grow. It is because of this reality that we are really excited to be able to work in partnership with Crosslands to offer individuals an opportunity to spend some time doing some deeper biblical study – in a flexible, supported and accessible way – through Crosslands ‘Foundation’.

Crosslands Foundations are flexible short courses that have been created to equip church members, interns and small group leaders for discipleship and ministry. These courses are designed to help disciples grow in knowledge and love of God through his word, able to serve the body of Christ and confident to reach out in mission amongst our local communities. Crosslands has created this menu of resources to support and enrich the training that local churches can provide: trusted resources for growing disciples, overseen by local leaders.

Each Foundation course (or module) involves roughly 15-20 hours of study, structured as nine units of approx 1.5-2 hours per unit. Course materials include readings, video, reflections, prompts for prayer, group discussion questions and application activities.

During this academic year at HBC, we will be completing three modules together: Reading and Understanding the Bible, Christian Discipleship and Rural Ministry. As mentioned above, each of these modules is comprised of nine units which require about 1-2 hours of study per week.

All of the modules are completed through an online ‘portal’ so you can complete the weekly units at a time and place that suits you.
We will also seek to gather for a few Saturday seminar/study mornings (10-11:30am) during each module so that we can explore, discuss and apply all that we have been learning as a group; we will plan to meet at HBC on the seminar dates listed on the schedule of study below.

You can discover more about the course content by visiting the Crosslands Foundation website.
