GROWING IN PHASES
The Transformations Programme is designed to lead you through a rigorous and structured process of spiritual growth and personal development to help you overcome the underlying causes of selfdefeating habitual behaviours. The focus will be on studying the Bible and worship of the God who inspired it. We believe that the words contained in the Bible are active and invigorating; when you apply them to your daily life they become transformational. Growth is gradual and this is reflected in the Phases of the Programme:
Induction: Min of 28 days. The aim here is to get you physically healthy and mentally alert. You will become acclimatised to the rhythm of the Programme and establish a routine.
Phase 1: Min of 12 weeks. Emphasis is on development of your character, responsible attitude, willingness to take instruction and abide by rules. Beginning to identify and work through root issues.
Phase 2: Min of 12 weeks. Focus on demonstrating self-discipline, personal responsibility, solid work ethic and ability to cope with on-going demands of living in a disciplined community.
Phase 3: Min of 16 weeks. Aims are to show increasing levels of maturity towards staff & other students and permanence of positive attitudes & habits. Demonstrating integrity and commitment to those on earlier Phases and beginning to set goals for your future.
Phase 4: Min of 26 weeks. Your improved confidence, reliability, self-discipline, initiative, leadership and submission will be demonstrated by your ability to live in a low structured environment without direct supervision and a minimum of rules or organisation. We will provide an individually tailored contract. You will have freedom of movement outside of the centre and will have benefits paid directly to you. Opportunities will be provided for skills training and volunteering in agreed ministries.
