Every year GraceLife London hosts a one-week intensive Bible conference to equip believers with the straightforward Bible teaching we need to grow in godliness and be able to fulfil the Great Commission.

Taught by professors from The Master’s Seminary, and pastors who’ve trained there, we aim to provide the kind of faithful biblical exposition many have become familiar with through the ministry of John MacArthur.

Join us this year for another Bible-feast as we look at the very practical teaching in God’s word giving us Wisdom for Living.

Event Schedule

Saturday 4th August 10:30am - 4:30pm

Women's Conference

Wise women don’t stay the same.

There’s nothing worse than feeling stuck, or feeling like you’re never going to change.

The good news is that you don’t have to stay the same: in the wisdom of the Word is hope for both growth and change. For this series, we’ll mine the Scriptures for the truths that change us!

Monday 6th August Friday 10th August 10:30am - 11:30am

Wisdom in Finances

So many Christians struggle with applying wisdom in the area of finances. You can feel alone, but the sad reality is that those who are wise in this area stand out from the crowd. This is taught Monday to Friday for the 1st session each day.

Monday 6th August Friday 10th August 11:45am - 12:45pm

Wisdom in Relationships

All of us are in relationships. The 2nd session each day (Monday-Friday) will focus on the Biblical wisdom for relationships essential for both singles and married people. This is the wisdom God’s children need to build godly relationships with the people God brings into our lives.

Monday 6th August Friday 10th August 2:15pm - 4:30pm

Wisdom in Marriage and Parenting

The lack of heavenly wisdom in marriage and parenting is painfully obvious in churches. Pastors have often turned to psychology for help and the results have been catastrophic. For the next 2 sessions each afternoon, we’ll be looking to the Bible to learn to live excellently in the home, and to avoid the many catastrophes that come from worldly advice.

Childcare is provided during these session.

Monday 6th August Friday 10th August 5:00pm - 6:00pm

Questions and Answers

Monday 6th August Friday 10th August 7:00pm - 9:00pm

The Fruit of the Spirit

Every evening we’ll be working through the life-changing teaching on the fruit of the Spirit. After an introductory message on Monday evening, each night there will be two sessions looking at aspects of the fruit as it’s defined in Galatians 5:22-23. This section is bookable as a separate track, suitable also for people who can’t get the week off work, but can come in the evenings.

Saturday 11th August 10:30am - 4:30pm

Men's Conference

More than ever, men today need the wisdom of God’s Word to be able to handle the many pressures of the modern world.

Being a wise man doesn’t require great age, but it does require great attention to God’s Word. Thankfully the principles we need to be able to make wise choices are written plainly in God’s Word if only we take the time to dig for them!

Join our very own three wise men, Drs. Keith Essex, Jack Hughes, and Richard Caldwell for a day mining God’s Word for the Divine wisdom that applies specifically to men.
