Biblical Counselling Conference

Life as we know it has changed. Covid-19 has revolutionised how we live each day. Jobs have been lost, schools, businesses, and even churches closed, and our routines disrupted.

During this unprecedented time of uncertainty and fear, we have seen a rise in levels of stress, depression, and anxiety.
As Christians how should we respond? How do we support those around us?

In this seminar, we will learn how to navigate life in a Covid world. Dr. Ed Welch from the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF) will speak from a biblical counselling perspective and there will be an opportunity for Q&A.

Shame Undone

Ed Welch, CCEF

Shame controls far too many of us. Feelings of worthlessness, inferiority, rejection, weakness, failure, humiliation… It all adds up to wishing we could avoid situations or hide from one another. We have all experienced shame in one way or another. The way out, however, is often much harder to find. This one-day seminar will look at how God cares for the shamed and lifts the pain of worthlessness and rejection.
