Courses we run
Here at Norwest Anglican we run a range of courses – and all for one purpose. We love to see people flourish. Flourish as they meet Jesus; flourish as they find a home at Norwest; flourish in their marriages and families; and flourish in their understanding of the Bible. Like more info?

Whether you are looking for answers to some of life’s big questions or just interested in the history of one of the world’s most influential figures, Christianity Explored will intrigue, entertain and challenge. Because our heartbeat at Norwest is for people to come to know Jesus Christ as both the Lord and Saviour of the world, we run this course two times a year. Hosted in people’s homes, the course follows one of the earliest biographies written about Jesus’ life, and wrestles with his modern significance.
Life Explored is for anyone who wants to find contentment and happiness in life. You won’t be asked to pray or sing. You can ask any question you like, or just sit and listen. Hosted in people’s homes, we run this course two times a year. The course follows one of the earliest biographies written about Jesus and how he relates to us now.
This course has been designed to help people find their way into partnership in Gospel ministry at Norwest Anglican. It often seems that people learn what a church ‘is all about’ by picking up a bit here and a bit there over years. Our hope is that by participating in this course, over three weeks you will gain an understanding of the characteristics that mark our Life Together as we live for Jesus and His kingdom.
The Marriage Course
Recognising that God has placed us in a community full of young families, we believe that helping people strengthen their marriages is a great way to serve them. Each year we have people both from within our church and from the broader community join us for this seven-week course.
The Parenting Course
We all long to have children who grow up to be well balanced and well-rounded adults. But how do we get them there? And who said parenting would be so tricky? The Parenting Course runs over five weeks and helps mums and dads discover practical tools that will help build a strong family. These include how we can meet our children’s needs, set effective boundaries, teach healthy relationships and pass on the values we hold to be important.
Discipleship Explored helps followers of Jesus turn up the gospel soundtrack to their lives.It goes beyond simply teaching the right moves – go to church, pray, read the Bible, share the gospel – and focuses on the music which drives discipleship: the love of Christ. The greatest love anyone can ever know.This eight-session journey through Paul’s letter to the Philippians is ideal for new Christians and anyone wanting to go deeper in their faith. We’d love you to come along and feel free to be as vocal or silent as you like.
Affirming parent confidence in an ever-changing world
The Parent Confidence Project is an exciting new course aimed at helping parents of children of all ages, from the very young, to teenagers, to adult. The course has been developed by Christian parenting expert and Founder and Director of the Family Systems Institute, Dr Jenny Brown. The course is aimed at increasing the confidence of parents by helping them think through important questions such as: Where should I focus my energy in the midst of anxiety? How do I connect well with my child without worrying? What does it look like to hold clear limits in the face of opposition? how do I clarify the parent’s job description for every stage of the child’s development? The course is hosted in people’s homes and is run based on demand. Please contact the office if you are interested in this course.
In every church there are people who long to better understand God’s Word. Theology 101 helps people know God more fully as they understand God’s word more deeply. Lectured by a team of keen Bible students, Theology 101 is for those who have the time and the ability to develop a more theological framework for reading the Bible and engaging our world.
