We are hoping that 2017 will be a big year for our church.
A Big Year introduces a new theme each calendar month with a short video or audio clip to break open the topic – and then invites participants to participate in a series of challenges to try and explore the topic in real life. Small groups are encouraged to maximise the opportunities to support each other and explore the challenges and topics together.
Challenges are based on a ‘chilli’ rating system, with the ‘milder’ challenges rated as “one chilli” and the more extreme going up to three chillis (hot!). The challenges are also offered in three different areas:
Monk: you and God
Cheerleader: encouraging and loving your neighbours
Activist: making a practical different in the wider world
