the four stages of nets

Seeing life from God's perspective

There are four ten-week stages of NETS and within each you will discover more of the richness of God’s Word. This is not only on an intellectual level, but also in a way that is designed to impact your heart and change both you and those you are trying to help, forever.

You will learn about the real-life issues that many believers struggle with and discover how God brings lasting transformation and healing.

Alongside the biblical teaching in each stage there will also be times of practical training, workshops, mentoring, prayer ministry, creativity, tutorial and reflection times, evangelism and mission.

There is time and space to rest in our beautiful grounds, to fellowship and reflect on all God is doing in you and through you. NETS uniquely weaves all these elements together so that you can truly grasp who God created you to be and rediscover His purpose for your life.









 “NETS was nothing I expected but everything I had hoped for.”
