Science & Faith

Switch On Your Brain: The Mind/Brain Connection with Dr Caroline Leaf

What would you do if you found a switch that could turn on your brain and enable you to be happier, healthier in your mind and body, even more intelligent? Dr. Caroline Leaf’s pioneering work on neuroplasticity and the mind/brain connection unlocks that switch. In this Masterclass, Dr. Leaf shows how science is finally catching up with the Bible, showing us the proof that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7).

Theology

“So, What IS The Gospel?” with Dr Darrell Johnson

We say that the chief role of the Church in the world is to announce the Gospel. The Gospel of Jesus Christ. So, what is it? Dr. Darrell Johnson proclaims that it is larger, richer and grander than any of us can imagine and massively good, good news for every dimension of our human existence! In this Masterclass, we’ll explore just how massive it is and prepare ourselves to announce the Gospel - in its fullness - to the people in our world.

Evangelism

In a cultural movement that is post-Christian, post-modern and post-social, how can we most thoughtfully and faithfully share the life-transforming message of the Gospel in our cities? This Masterclass, hosted by Alpha Canada, will explore how the Church can invite people into a relationship with Jesus through the community of the Church. 

In it, we will hear from key voices and unpack what it means to re-imagine evangelism in our cultural moment, discuss strategies of how to create a culture of invitation and hospitality in the Church today, and explore the role of the Holy Spirit in Kingdom mission.
