Resource of the Month: Transformed Living Church Programme

An invitation to explore how to live out the Christian life through Ephesians 4–6

We’re excited to bring you a brand new resource that small groups and your whole church can do together.

Transformed Living is a seven-week church programme that helps you and your church explore what it looks like in practice to live life ‘in Christ’. Ideal as a stand-alone programme, it can also be used as the second part of a series with Transformed Life, which focuses on questions of identity, purpose and belonging using Ephesians 1–3.

What does a transformed life look like in practice?

Unite your church as you learn and grow together. Strengthen your relationships at home and in the workplace, and discover how to stand firm under pressure. Find your unique place in the Church, and explore why the unity of God’s people is a key element for living a transformed life.

The church programme is underpinned by the 50-day devotional book, Transformed Living (currently on offer with £2 off until 31 March 2017) by Senior Pastor Dave Smith (Kingsgate Community Church). The book includes daily readings, reflections and questions to help you apply the teaching to your life.

Individuals, small groups and churches can all find extra resources online for free, such as sermon outlines, small group studies and more. Using all of the available resources will unite a small group or the whole congregation, enabling everyone involved to grow together. Visit www.transformed-living.info/home to find out more.

‘As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.’ (Ephesians 4:1–6)

Resource of the Month: Transformed Life church programme

An invitation to discover your identity, belonging and purpose through Ephesians 13

As we move into the autumn term perhaps your small group or even whole church is seeking a new programme to study together up until Christmas.

Transformed Life is based around a successful teaching series created by Dave Smith and road-tested by KingsGate Community Church. As a Senior Pastor, Dave has become more and more aware that questions concerning identity, belonging and purpose are key for everyone. When we do not clearly understand who we are in Christ, all other areas of our spiritual growth are undermined and our purpose is lost. Watch the video above to see Dave Smith introduce Transformed Life.

Underpinning the whole programme is the Transformed Life 50 day devotional book, written by Dave Smith. It is suitable for both individuals and small groups. Full-colour 16-page children’s activity books are available for Early and Primary Years.

If you have recently signed up on the Transformed Life website, we will be sending you emails during the autumn term to help and encourage you and your small group. And if you have already taken part in Transformed Life, we would love to hear your feedback, so please let us know how you got along at hello@transformed-life.info

Individuals, small groups and churches can all find extra resources online for free, such as sermon outlines, small group studies and more.

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:11–12, NIV)
