Freedom Course 2024

Mon May 13, 08:00 - Sat Sep 7, 08:00

Urban Edge Church


Freedom is designed to equip you to live the victorious and abundant life Jesus came to give you!

Freedom builds on the foundation of your faith in Jesus, to help you embrace the truth of God’s Word as it relates to how you see the world, your past, your sin, your personal value to God, and your purpose in His Kingdom.


Freedom is a 12 week course which will launch in the week of 13 May 2024.
The course culminates with the Freedom Encounter weekend from 6 - 7 September.


The cost is R400 per person. This includes:
• A Freedom Course participant book
• Registration for the Freedom Encounter weekend, including:
• Dinner on the Friday evening
• Light breakfast snacks on the Saturday and tea / filter coffee
• Saturday lunch


Over 12 weeks, participants gather weekly in small groups called Freedom Groups to discuss the Freedom Small Group curriculum. This group will help you remove every obstacle to intimacy with God and walk in true freedom.
• We have various groups meeting throughout the week in various locations.
• Space is limited.
• Payment secures your place in your particular group.
• Groups are single-sex groups (i.e. all women, or all men).
• Groups consist of approximately 8 people.
• Groups meet on weekday evenings (Monday - Thursday). You will have the opportunity to indicate if there is a day of the week that does not suit you to meet.
• Group allocations will be communicated closer to the course start date.


At the end of the 12-week Freedom Group meetings, there is a Freedom Encounter. The Freedom Encounter focuses on solidifying what you learned in Freedom by helping you take next steps to overcome your past and lay a foundation for walking in daily freedom.

The Freedom Encounter is a fundamental component of the Freedom course. Participants will need to commit to attending the Encounter weekend from 6-7 September in order to register for the course (i.e. it is not possible to register for the course content and Encounter separately).


The Freedom Curriculum focuses on six areas of personal growth:

1. Living in the "Tree of Life”
God never wanted us to pursue dead religion, rather His heart is for us to know Him personally and live in our true identity as His children. You will learn what it means to live in the “Tree of Life” and how a simple but powerful perspective shift can impact every area of your life.

2. Walking in the Spirit
The Bible talks about the Spirit-led life, but this kind of living can feel hard to reach. Through Freedom, you will learn the principles of spiritual order and how feeding your spirit over your emotions and flesh is key to walking in the Spirit.

3. Surrendering to Jesus
God calls us to love and serve Him above all else, and when we do, we see how we can grow in our purpose, live forgiven and forgive others, and receive His blessings. Freedom will help you learn how to surrender to Jesus and live in freedom daily.

4. Speaking Words of Life
Our words have power, and by learning to speak words of life that line up with God’s Word, your words can change your environment and relationships and break the power of the enemy’s words in your life.

5. Becoming a Vessel God Can Use
God has a unique plan and purpose for our lives, but we also have an enemy who is trying to keep us from fulfilling this purpose. In your Freedom Group, you will learn how to stand in the authority of Jesus to overcome sin and the enemy’s schemes as you allow God to use your life for His glory.

6. Living as a Worshipper
We all worship something. Freedom will help you learn how to daily direct your worship to God and discover how it can influence the heart of everything you do.
