A key part to our vision is to ‘equip God’s people for personal growth and maturity of faith’. This is achieved through a number of different equipping courses that are run during the year from our Training Centre, SWEAT (South West Equipping & Training). Courses include a bible college, Family Well (courses for the community) and other courses for local churches and leaders. Please click on the links below to explore the equipping we offer and to download our weekly sermons.
SWEAT (South West Equipping & Training) is a Christian Training Centre based in the South West of England run by Living Well Church. Our mission is to see individuals transformed by expanding their knowledge, skills, and experiences through participation in courses that are based on the Word of God and that apply godly principles.
Living Word Bible College is a dynamic one-year course presenting a once in a lifetime opportunity for you to be equipped to observe, understand and apply Gods word. During the year you will learn how to unpack all 66 books of the Bible through many different lectures and practicals.
At the heart of what we do at Living Well is family, we believe in building relationships – not just knowing people but doing life together and becoming family. Part of our vision to help achieve this is to provide resources for the community; to reach out to people and make a difference to others through positively influencing them and introducing them to Gods Kingdom..
At Living Well Church we run a ‘Practical Parenting’ course as part of Family Well. It provides an opportunity for the local community to explore parenting from a Christian perspective. This is achieved through a combination of teaching sessions, discussions and activities.
Working alongside CAP (Christians Against Poverty) and other leaders who are expert in this area, Family Well can provide practical support and equipping – individually or as a group – to those who need support in tackling financial problems.
Family Well & Living Well Church make use of a lifelong learning method called Emotional Logic. It is effective in helping people adjust to change. The leadership at Living Well & SWEAT are trained in Emotional Logic and use it on a regular basis within their pastoral activities.
‘Matches’ is the Marriage Enrichment course we run at Living Well. Facilitated by Steve and Sarah Lakey, Matches is a seven week course which explores different areas of married life. Each weekly session includes a meal, viewing of a short DVD followed by discussion time.
Family, marriage and relationships are at the heart of what we do. We have authorised facilitators endorsed for Prepare Enrich. The Prepare-enrich method skills couples, giving them tools to help communication when dealing with conflict resolutions but also highlights the importance of recognising and acknowledging the positive or strong areas in their relationships.
At Living Well Church we run a six week foundation course to learn about the foundations of the Christian faith. The course is open to anyone within the body but is very beneficial to those who are new to the faith.
LTS (Leadership Training School) is a two-three week annually run equipping tract dealing with the principles of leadership. It runs from Monday to Friday each week culminating in a themed banquet on the Saturday evening at the end of the final week.
Cells are an important part of Living Well and as we continue to grow as a church, we are keen to raise and release new leaders, in particular cell leaders. Our specific ‘Cell Leader Training’ is a great way to learn more about running small groups.
At Living Well we have a media team who look after the website, the branding of Living Well and any published materials. This team run ‘Envision’, equipping for those in the body who have an interest in marketing, public relations and media. They also offer Event Management Training for local churches.
At Living Well, we are passionate about taking the Word of God out into the local community and finding opportunities to serve locally, nationally and internationally. We provide a comprehensive mission training course for the body and local churches to help equip for local, national and international missions.
