Every Christian is called to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is a lifelong commitment. The fundamental idea of a disciple is to be a learner - someone who is always learning from the Master.  Christian life, then, is about being a life-long learner. In the courses listed under 'Discipleship Matters', Tilsley Academy hopes to take seriously the calling of the Lord Jesus himself, not only to be disciples of his, but to make disciples (Matt 28.18-20).

We hope that as we grow our menu of courses, you will find teaching and training under the heading of 'Discipleship Matters' that helps you grow and mature in your followership of the Lord Jesus. We also hope that you too will encourage others, either by sharing what you have learned with them or by directing them here to the Academy to learn for themselves.


So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, 

continue to live your lives in him,

 rooted and built up in him,

strengthened in the faith as you were taught, 

and overflowing with thankfulness. 

(Colossians 2:6-7)
