DiscipleKit: Discipleship resources reviewed by CPAS

DiscipleKit logo
CPAS have designed a new tool called DiscipleKit; an easy-to-use website bringing together the latest discipleship resources in one place.

They say:

“We are really excited to welcome you to DiscipleKit. We hope you enjoy looking around the site, and discovering some great resources to energise your journey of discipleship. Every resource has the information you need, a link through to obtain it, and an extensive review which will help you choose the one you want.

We are beginning with a focus on resources for small groups for Adults, Youth and Children – for those who are Enquiring about Christianity, Beginning the Christian journey, or Growing along the way. But we have great plans for the site, which include resources for individuals, and additional themed resources such as those for marriage, parenting and seniors. We would love your feedback and suggestions, so do join our DiscipleKit community and tell us what you would like to see included.”

CYFA Ventures Houseparty in Romsey

Matthew Dawkins has written to Pete to say:

“My wife and I are leaders on a CYFA Ventures houseparty which is taking place in Romsey, 3-10 August, at Hampshire Collegiate School.  The houseparty is open to 14-18 year olds, and we usually have young people coming from all over the country (and sometime beyond), but this year we particularly wanted to reach out to young people more local to the area.  Our houseparty has run for several years, with a group of dedicated and enthusiastic leaders from around the country.  We’re passionate about bringing a deeper understanding of God to young people in a variety of different ways, and of course having bucketloads of fun at the same time!

If you’re interested in hearing more about what we have planned for this year, the website should give you a good flavour: http://www.ventures.org.uk/venture-holidays/details/2261.  And if you have any specific questions, I’d be happy to answer, so please do email us.”
