Promoting Relational Transformation in Church and Society through:

Training

Equipping people to live out relationally healthy lives in the church and in the world.

Mentoring

Training mentors and running mentoring groups to help followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness.

Publishing

Bringing to life books that promote spiritual friendship and connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life.

Why Spiritual Friendship?

Spiritual friendship is friendship that is rooted in Christ for the purpose of helping followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness. Our model for spiritual friendship takes its cue from Jesus, who called together a community (Matthew 4:18–22) at the start of His public ministry.

The Christian life can be described as following Jesus in the company of friends. But how many of us have these vital and life-giving relationships in place?

Why Publishing?

It is all too easy to live a life that divides the sacred from the secular. But we believe that all of life is lived under God; that there is no such divide.

So we publish books to help followers of Jesus Christ embrace spiritual friendship, and live out their faith in the world. Our books help them connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life — truth for life — issues like busyness, young adulthood, marriage, parenting, growing old, work as worship to God, politics, corruption, to name a few.

Millennial Christians and the Institutional Church

Millennial Christians and the Institutional Church

Mention the word “millennials” and adjectives like “entitled”, “lazy”, and “disrespectful” may pop into your mind. It is no secret that institutional churches in general are having huge difficulties retaining and engaging with them. However, are these stereotypes...

A Special Evening

A Special Evening

There were a number of highlights during my recent trip to Penang to see my mum. One was the opportunity to celebrate mum’s 93rd birthday. Another was an early birthday celebration for son Andrew. We went to a French restaurant in Bishop Street. The food was good,...

Full and Grateful

Full and Grateful

It's a bit hard to believe that this is the last Graceworks commentary for the year. This year feels more full than other years. Perhaps it has been developments in family, especially caring for mum in Penang. She is 92, living with dementia and other health issues....

Wait for it, wait for it…

Wait for it, wait for it…

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you...

Mary Was No Wimp

Mary Was No Wimp

Mary, the mother of Jesus, was no wimp. The angel Gabriel declared that Mary was “highly favoured” and that the Lord was with her (Luke 1:26–28), which are Luke’s code words for the fact that Mary was a woman of substance. She was maybe 14 years old? Yet she stood her...
