During this campaign, we've given you tools to study scripture. It is our hope that you would have learnt new ways to engage with the Word and get to know Christ more intimately. As our campaign draws to a close in the next few days, it is our desire that we do not lose that intentionality and carry on that moment.

For this weekend only (Sunday the 26th of August 2018), the Christian Book Discounters will have a table in the courtyard selling devotional material and study books. CBD are a non-profit organisation with 5 stores nationwide and an online ordering service, with over 20 000 book titles covering 30 categories. We strongly encourage you to browse the table this weekend to find something that will take your quiet times to the next level. If you do miss out, the nearest CBD store is in Pinetown, 15 Meller Road.

For those who prefer to study the word digitally, we've put together a list of YouVersion reading plans that we believe will also take you deeper into the word.
