Our heart is for everyone at Coast to experience growth in faith and life. We provide many different training opportunities to help make this happen. Here are a few of the pathways for training, upskilling, and investing in our people.

 
 

Christian Living Courses

At Coast, we're running 8 foundational Christian Living Courses every two years. These are short courses (approx 3-5 weeks) that will give rich input, explain the scriptures, and provide practical application – all to help you to deepen your life with God.

For more details, visit our Christian Living Courses page.

 

Alpha

Alpha is a fantastic series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question, and is assigned to create conversation. There’s no pressure and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

If you're interested in Alpha and want to find out more about when it's next happening, contact us at info@coast.org.nz
