Source Taster Event


Part of what my vision is and what my job entails is to build bridges between outreach and discipleship. And while we were brainstorming last year we came up with the taster event, physician something that would allow people to come and see us in a setting that was still about the prophetic and creative ways God speaks, hospital without the barriers that church normally poses for them. We wanted to allow them space to hear more truth, viagra here explore and respond for themselves.

This idea was actually born out of an LSJ course that bombed, and we realised that the three people were not ready to take the course, but that they might have benefited from a ‘taste and see’ event. So take heart from your situation… if it has bombed, then press into God and see what amazing thing he wants to birth from the ashes… because just over two months later we ran our first taster and two of the people that came to it are still enjoying their discipleship journey with us.

So I can’t take credit for what was a group revelation: that spiritual searchers love going to workshops, so to have a choice of two workshops as the first part of the event. Then to have the second part be ‘stations’ with a background of soaking music, preferably live, with a creativity station and maybe live art going on where people can play with pastels or paint activations. We made a soaking area with two large rugs and cushions and meditation postcards, and we had appointments available for people who wanted healing, prophecy, dreams etc. We had a cafe option for people who want to chat and are verbal processors, but this is best kept as far away from the soaking area so as not to disturb those there.

Here are some photos of the taster we had on Monday night:
