Dealing with depression

 

Date 1: Thursday 4 February 2021 7:30pm-9:30pm
Date 2: Saturday 6 February 2021 9:30am-11:30am

Location: Online

Depression is common. All of us know people affected by it, and many of us experience it ourselves.

So we know that depression is also horrible. At its worst it can be flattening, dehumanising, and its effects can even be fatal. It's a huge part of modern life but 'depression' never appears in the Bible, and the people that are most expert in dealing with it don't seem to need the Bible for what they do. In this session we will find that the Bible has a great deal to say about depression, to people who are depressed and to their carers, and connects at our points of greatest need. We'll also seek to understand how God uses both church and secular means to care for those struggling with depression.

This teaching session is delivered in two 45 minute teaching sessions, with opportunities for interactions and questions.

Price: £5

Meet the speaker

Revd Dr Andrew Nicholls, MA, is the Director of Pastoral Care at Oak Hill College.

"Pastoral care is what the gospel is for. In the gospel, God himself saves, secures and sanctifies us out of the deepest covenant love and faithful care, and with the gospel he equips us to be his agents in this glorious work. We have left a situation we loved in order to be part of a college committed to raising up a generation of church servants who increasingly know how wonderfully the gospel reaches into us, and through us, into others, at every twist and turn of life."
