Each week there will be a supper provided. Generally, there will be a social time and then we'll begin the videos. Each of the 13 videos is given by the Reverend Nicky Gumble, priest at Holy Trinity Brompton Church in London, England. There will be then a time for questions and discussion and prayer.

In the middle of the course, there is a Holy Spirit weekend. The weekend will involve dinner on Friday night and 1 of the videos on the Holy Spirit. Saturday, there will be 2 videos and lunch will be provided.
