“Go therefore and make disciples…” This is called the ‘Great Commission’ and it’s the job description of every baptised person. This workshop aims to break discipleship down to its most basic ideas so that we can see what it’s really meant to be about. Along the way we’ll look at how to be a disciple ourselves, how to help others become disciples, and what a ‘disciple-friendly’ community looks like.
