The Philip Project
What is the Philip Project?
The Philip Project aims to help students know and love the Bible more during their time in the UK. We seek to achieve this through training and mentoring students to understand and teach the Bible, enabling them to be better equipped to serve the church wherever they go as disciplers, teachers or preachers - members of God's church.
Who is it for?
The Philip Project is particularly for Christian international students and short-term professionals with an interest in teaching the Bible. We also welcome on the course those working with internationals and those living in the UK who are seeking to reach their local ethnic communities for Christ.
Why the ‘Philip’ Project?
In Acts 8 Philip encounters the Ethiopian eunuch who was returning home from Jerusalem, reading Isaiah. He asks him, Do you understand what you are reading?” And the eunuch replies, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” After Philip explains the good news of Jesus to him from the prophecy, the eunuch believes and is baptised – and goes home with a new understanding of the Bible, able to tell others about him. In the same way the Philip Project aims to help international students and professionals to understand the Bible and share it with others when they return home.
The Philip Project includes:
monthly training days led by experienced teachers with opportunities for students to practice giving Bible talks and leading Bible studies;
mentors meeting regularly with students for discipleship and encouragement;
a weekend away with workshops, talks and fellowship.
We have Saturday classes meeting once a month in in the locations listed below. Also, below you will find more information and a form to sign up.
During Covid 19, we will be meeting online.
All training days run from 9:30am to 3:00pm.
There are three parts to each training day:
Bible Overview and Worldviews
We examine the overall story of the Bible and other Worldviews.
Understanding the Bible
Teaching on how to interpret the different types of Bible literature.
Teaching the Bible
Training on how to prepare to teach a Bible passage.
