FAIRFIELD TEACHING PROGRAMME (FTP) Open Format
Fairfield Methodist Church is in its second year of the Fairfield Teaching Programme (FTP); a journey to ground our members in a Bible-based foundation of life. This weekly teaching programme provides a broad overview of Bible-based Christian beliefs and practices. FTP is designed to be interactive and complements our pulpit ministry and small group interactions. The programme covers systematic and biblical theology, Bible book studies and topical subjects. At the end of the programme, participants should have a clearer grasp of basic Christian doctrine and a Bible-based approach to major areas of Christian life.
Time : 9am to 10:15 am on Sunday (Online)
Format : 1 hour of classroom teaching, followed by ~15 minutes of Q&A
