Good News People

Good News People is a series of studies written by WEBA Regional Minister Alisdair Longwill and Rev. Kevin Durrant.

It develops the theme behind the ’50 days of good news’ initiative which some may remember from 2017, and some of the video resources we used then have been adapted to use with this small group study.

The aim of ‘Good News People’ is not to get you to do mission for a month or even two months and then settle back into ‘normal’ Christian living. It is instead designed to be something that helps to change your personal outlook on life.

 

By God’s grace this will be a ‘journey’of:

  • listening to his word
  • discovering or maybe re-discovering that the God who created and loves the world and its people is a missionary God who is always reaching out to them
  • getting a clearer understanding of how that God wants his children to live too
  • and allowing this to shape the way we live – learning to see people through the eyes of Jesus, learning to respond to them as Jesus would have done, accepting opportunities to show and share the reality of God’s love, in all our relationships.

 

Everything you need to run ‘Good News People’ in your church or small group will be available to download from this page.

The materials for studies 1 and 2 are available now; handouts for the other 3 will be added very soon. The leaders’ guides and participants handouts can be downloaded as pdf documents; the videos can be downloaded via vimeo.
