Thursday Online Precept Leader Meeting

When leaders lead, the people will follow. (Judges 5:2)

​If you are leading any Precept study with one or more people, we invite you to join our exclusive Thursday Online Precept Leader gathering led by Nigel & Molly Watts (Directors Precept UK), organised just for you!

Join us for a new study online starting in September called “Anointed – To Suffer, To Serve, To Save” a flexible study on Isaiah 53.  There will be a time of discussion in breakout groups, fellowship, encouragement and questions answered that will strengthen your faith and your leadership skills. We know from feedback, that these times together have made leaders feel more connected, supported and encouraged as they answer God’s call on their lives.

We meet fortnightly on a Thursday (starting Thursday 2nd September) and you can join the meeting at either lunchtime (12.30 – 2pm) or in the evening (7.30 – 9pm).

Email office@preceptscotland.org to register. We ask that you commit to joining us as often as you are able to and will send you the zoom login details and a free pdf copy of Precept’s flexible inductive study ‘Anointed’ that we will work through together. If you wish to purchase a hard copy instead of receiving the PDF click here but let us know you do not wish to receive the PDF when you register your interest.

For men and women, leaders and co-leaders of Precept studies – it’s a time for growth and inspiration in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere.

We make each week a stand-alone lesson, so join with us at any point.  There is no homework!

We look forward very much to meeting with you online.

40 Minute Study

Reaching the Younger Generations
How To Make Choices You Won’t Regret

8 weeks, starting Monday 4th October 2021 (7.45 – 9.15pm)

I wish I had learnt how to study the Bible when I was younger“, is a common statement we hear. Well, here’s the answer! This study course is aimed at young people, to teach them how to study the Bible and be equipped to share God’s Word and disciple others too. The baton can be passed successfully!  It’s also for adults interested in discipling young people and for youth leaders too.

We’ll meet weekly online, have a main group discussion based on the text we study together and then break out into smaller groups when needed. This will give people time to discuss what they are learning and will also give them opportunity to practise leading a small group. It’s practical, applicable and transferrable.

We’ll be studying,  40Minute: “How to Make Choices You Won’t Regret”.  The 40 Minute series is perfect for youth meetings, small groups and 1:1 discipleship and is a Level 1 Precept Study.

The cost of the course is £10.

(Young people aged 14 -17 will need to have parental permission to join unless accompanied by a parent/guardian.)
