Be empowered to serve your neighbour
One of our goals at CES is to develop and equip the community in a resilient way that empowers people to live out the full capacity of their God-given potential. In 2018, CES Equip was launched as a platform to provide training to enrich and enhance an individual's life in practical ways.
The CES Equip classes are crafted from A Holistic Approach to provide knowledge in seven aspects: Spiritual, Physical, Mental, Emotional, Economy, Social, and Creation Care. Workshops are grouped into the categories of General Knowledge, Capacity Building and Soul Care series.
Equip classes are conducted on Saturdays, 9 am - 1 pm, in the months of May and September annually. View our upcoming classes and speakers for September 2018!

Introduction to Integral Mission

Understanding Creation Care & Climate Change
Speaker: Margaret Loy
Date: 22 Sep 2018
Disastrous floods, typhoons, extreme climate events - these are happening with greater frequency and intensity. What’s happening globally and what’s to be our Christian response and responsibility? Is there anything we can do about it?
This session will enable us to get an overview of what’s happening in our environment and formulate a biblical response personally and corporately to challenge us to further action!
The Neuroscience of Pornography Addiction
The struggle with adult material addiction, often called pornography, is a creeping epidemic in our society today. Popular culture and a liberal society encourage the use of adult material to satisfy one's sexual needs. It is a silent struggle many face - even in the church.
Participants get to discover the roots of this issue, the effects on the brain and society, and how to treat this stubborn addiction.
This workshop is open to both men and women.
