DISCIPLESHIP INTENSIVE YEAR: We are excited to announce a big development for Young Adults at KBC for 2015: “DIY: Discipleship Intensive Year”. Quick facts:

In the early church in the book of Acts 2:42–47, we see a snapshot of how they went about faith and life:
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer…
All the believers were together and had everything in common…
Every day they continued to meet together…
They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts…
What’s changed? Why not give God a year and intentionally devote yourself to seeking Him and fellowship with other followers of Jesus? It could literally change the trajectory of your life, and build foundations in faith for the years ahead. Full details and booklet here: www.kewbaptist.org.au/diy
