Bartley Christian Church
Perspectives is a dynamic fifteen lesson discipleship course for every Christian. The course is designed to envision local churches and individuals to have a bigger view of God and His purposes, and to equip them to fulfil their individual role within those purposes.
Time & Location
Oct 16, 2021, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Bartley Christian Church, 4 How Sun Dr, Singapore 538526
About the Event
The Perspectives course is about vision. It’s about the same vision which empowered Jesus to live His life with joy, hope, and single-hearted passion. This course explores that vision and will help you respond to Christ’s invitation to live for the same purpose and significance that He did.
The fifteen lessons explore God’s global purpose from four different angles: the Biblical Perspective; the Historical Perspective; the Cultural Perspectives; and the Strategic Perspective.
Perspectives goes into more detail and depth than Kairos and can be a beneficial next step for Christians who have already experienced the Kairos course.Course format
Each of the 15 lessons will include the following:
- A pre-recorded video, to be viewed in the participant’s own time. Each video will be made available at least a week before the corresponding instructor Q&A session. Most of the videos are recordings of live sessions from an earlier course (many of which were conducted via Zoom).
- Readings (see below).
- An interactive meeting (see meeting dates above), involving the following: (a) A Q&A session with the guest instructor (who may or may not be the same instructor from the pre-recorded lesson video), and (b) a small group session, including discussion and prayer. You will meet in the same small group (of up to 5 persons) throughout the course to share what you are learning, to encourage and to pray for one another. Most of these interactive meetings will be held online via the Zoom platform. However, lessons 5, 9 and 15 are scheduled to be in-person meetings at Bartley Christian Church, subject to the COVID-19 situation and prevailing social restrictions.
- Assignments (see below).
The Lesson 1 video and reading should be completed before the first interactive meeting (16 Oct 2021). These materials are contained in the free taster pack.Readings and assignments
The readings are from the Perspectives Study Guide and Reader (see below).
You will be required to complete five short written reflections to help you integrate, apply, and discuss your learning points from the course.
If you wish to take the course to a higher level (certificate level), you will need to complete a further fifteen reviews for each lesson, and an integrative project after the end of the course. These reviews are “open book” exercises.Course books

- Combined Ebook (recommended). The Perspectives on the World Christian Movement (Combined Ebook) contains both the Study Guide and the Reader. The Combined Ebook is available from Amazon’s Kindle store: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08DJ9NLPV/.
- Physical books (for those who prefer physical books). Course participants can purchase the 4th Edition of the Study Guide and Reader from us for S$60 (self-collection from Commonwealth area).
