Faith & Work

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…”
-Colossians 3:23

 

Have you ever felt like there’s a disconnect between your Christian faith and your work? Do you struggle to find meaning in your work?

 

What if God has a purpose for you in the job that you have right now, as a fashion designer, a banker, a lawyer, a homemaker, a doctor, a teacher, a chef, a human resource manager, a personal assistant etc.?

 

What if being a faithful servant at work is more than how you should be nice at work or how many people you “evangelise”?

 

We want to help you navigate these questions! Come and feast with us! Check out our offerings for this year!
