DNA:Online Conferences

2020 has been an interesting year for all of us. We have had to adjust to different expressions of church, navigate a new way of living, and get to grips with the online world of video calls. If you had asked us what 2020 would look like, many would not have guessed we would be living in the world we find ourselves in today. Over the months we have faced various restrictions and uncertainty but one thing that has been constant is God. There may have been times of questioning and a desire to go deeper into our faith.

Our DNA Conference: Online is a great tool that can help your church look at specific topics over the course of a day. ‘Zoom fatigue’ has set in for lots of us but these conferences will be packed with energy and delivered in an interactive way. The day will be split into sessions that are a mixture of teaching, discussion, and reflection to help keep all those involved engaged. There are many topics to choose from, such as Discipleship, Mission, Spiritual Warfare and Perfectionism. Each topic will be taught by one of our DNA team. As the day goes in depth with so many areas, our conferences are not just a great tool for individual development but also for training serving teams within the local church.

During our conferences, our aim is to give the local church a greater understanding of the nature of God, who Jesus is and what this means for us today. Through the day you can expect to gain not just head knowledge but also heart knowledge about the area you are focusing on. Our team base all their teaching in the Bible and have personal experiences of the area they teach on. We believe that this can lead others to heart transformation as the Holy Spirit speaks to them.

All that we do at DNA is to serve the local church and our conferences are just one way that we do this. If you would like to host a DNA Conference: Online at your church, please do get in touch with us to find out more information. We are more than happy to answer any questions and talk to you about what a conference would look like for your church. 

DNA:Teach

DNA: Teach is a new initiative we are starting in response to our own experiences, and others we know. This year many churches have turned to online services and with any new venture, there are many delights and frustrations along the way. Many hours go into creating a meeting that resonates with our church family at home and encourages them to keep engaging with God. We recognise that even though these online services have been a blessing to so many, it can sometimes feel like a never- ending cycle for the teams who film and edit our Sunday services. That is why we
have launched DNA: Teach!

Our DNA team have recorded a selection of talks for churches and small groups to use. We love to serve the local church in many ways so we hope that this can help give our online service teams and small group leaders a well needed rest. Each talk has a different topic and does not just feature teaching but also the applications of that teaching for us today. Our team are passionate about giving people the space to know God on a deeper and more intimate level so through our talks can expect to be challenged but also encouraged. We believe that there is always more for us to know about God so whether you are early on in your Christian journey or have know Jesus for a long time, God is always us to come closer to Him. We pray that our DNA: Teach recordings will help
you do just that.

You can purchase our DNA: Teach package for just £500. You will receive copies of 6 30-minute talks for you to use as part of your online services or to send out to your small groups. If you would like to purchase these talks please do get in touch with us below or by calling us. We would love to serve you and your church!

DNA:Mentoring

2020 has been a year no one expected and while the country was in lockdown we know you as a Church leader have still been working hard, have you been overstretched leading church in this
“new normal”? Are you feeling like you’ve spread yourself a bit thin?

DNA: Mentoring launches in Jan 2021. Its aim is to serve the needs of church leaders across the nation, it is a bespoke mentoring program to give you time to check in with God and yourself, to put back in as you are giving out.

A DNA team member (same gender as you) will tailor the sessions to your individual needs to help you grow and develop you and your character.

Cost: £300 for 6 months. Breakdown: 2 one hour sessions a month for six months on zoom. That works out at £25 per session. Fees payable in full at the start (please do speak to us if you would prefer to set up a monthly payment plan). Start Date: January 2021.

DNA:Mark’s Gospel

Do you have a hunger to dig deeper into the Bible? Ever wondered how it relates to us today? Why not spend the next year answering these questions?

Part 1: Through 2021 our team will be delivering 12 1-hour sessions going through Mark’s Gospel in a deep, transforming way. Over the year you will study chapters 1 to 6 and learn about the background of the book. At £120 for the year (that’s just £10 per session) this is a great way to learn more about Jesus and how we can follow in His footsteps. You will also get the chance to experience some of the teaching from DNA 1 as our sessions will be run via Zoom with small groups of between 8 to 12 people. This gives you the opportunity to get to know one another and journey the year together, all from the comfort of your own home!

Our Mark’s Gospel: Chapters 1-6 is a great opportunity to follow in the footsteps of previous trainees as they have discovered the Bible on a deeper level. As the team deliver these sessions you can expect to uncover how we can engage with scripture, what it is and what it isn’t. This year will also give you tips on how to read other books in the Bible as we investigate the cultural context of Mark’s Gospel. You can expect to gain more than head knowledge as we ask thought provoking questions, bring a fresh perspective, and hear the views of others in the sessions.

Part 2: The local church is at the heart of everything we do at DNA. We believe that by equipping and serving the local church we recognise, release and resource women and men of God. Learning about Jesus from Mark’s Gospel is one way of doing this. Each year we get feedback from our DNA 1 trainees asking for more Mark’s Gospel sessions. So, with that in mind, we have also created a Mark’s Gospel: Chapters 8-16. This will continue to challenge and develop you by going through the remaining chapters. 

Starting in January 2021 we are launching Mark’s Gospel: Chapters 8-16! Each year we get feedback from our DNA 1 trainees asking for more Mark’s Gospel sessions. So, this is your chance to find out what happens at the end of Mark’s Gospel and continue your journey in Jesus’ footsteps.

Through 2021 our team will be delivering 12 1-hour sessions going through chapters 8 to 16 in a deep, transforming way. At £120 for the year (that’s just £10 per session), this is a great way to pick up where you left off on DNA 1. The sessions will be delivered via Zoom with groups of 8 to 12 people. It will be a great space to access more teaching from the DNA team and connect with fellow DNA trainees, all from the comfort of your own home!

Mark’s Gospel: Chapters 8-16 will be another chance for you to re-ignite your hunger for the bible as the team unpack how it applies to us today. In the sessions you can expect to be challenged by scripture, ask questions, and gain a fresh perspective on the Bible. As with all that DNA do, the aim of the year will be to give you more than head knowledge. We believe that God uses every opportunity to speak to us and that through the Bible we can expect our hearts to be transformed. This year is a chance for all our previous DNA trainees and those who have completed Mark’s Gospel: Chapters 1-6 to continue their discipleship journey with Jesus.

The local church is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that by equipping and serving the local church we recognise, release and resource women and men of God. Learning about Jesus from Mark’s Gospel is one way of doing this. We are confident that through your experience of DNA you will agree with us. Mark’s Gospel: Chapters 8-16 is another way for you to access our team, learn from their own experiences, and get to grips with the Bible in an engaging way.

We are excited to be launching this new opportunity and hope you will join us. Gather some of your friends from DNA and sign up as we find out what happens at the end of Mark’s Gospel! 

The sessions will either run on a Wednesday evening, or weekday evenings at 6pm (mainly on Tuesdays and Fridays).  Bookings close on the 28th Jan, so please do sign up ASAP
