What is Transformed Life?
At the heart of Transformed Life is a book written by best-selling author and Senior Pastor Dave Smith. Each of the 50 practical, daily devotional readings in Transformed Life takes you through Ephesians 1—3 to study the key life issues of purpose, identity and belonging. Suitable for both individuals and small groups, the book can be worked through in 7 weeks. Full-colour, 16-page Children’s Activity Books are also available for children in their early and primary years to join in.
Ultimately though, Transformed Life is much more than just a printed resource – it is a whole 8-week tried-and-tested church programme that includes a variety of free online resources. Suitable for all ages of the congregation (from children and young people to adults) the programme brings your church together for 8 weeks, with 1 introductory week and 7 weeks of teaching.
When should I start Transformed Life at my church?
Transformed Life can be embarked on during any point of the year. We recommend that the start of the autumn term is a good time to begin the Transformed Life journey as it brings the whole church together after the summer, including your small groups and the children, youth and young adults in your congregation.
How much time does Transformed Life take to do as a church?
Although the book covers 50 days (7 weeks and 1 day), the Transformed Life church programme consists of 8 weeks in total, kicking off with an Introduction Week and then diving into seven teaching weeks.
Here is an outline of the whole programme, including the weekly theme titles:
Week 1 – Brand new
Week 2 – Eternally blessed
Week 3 – Pray for revelation
Week 4 – Alive for His purpose
Week 5 – Belonging to His family
Week 6 – Gifted for service
Week 7 – Pray for power
We recommend that you start each new week during your church's Sunday sermon. You can even use the free weekly Sermon Outlines and study guides to support you.
How can I get the best out of Transformed Life church programme?
We highly recommend that you set aside the full 8 weeks to journey together as a church family or as a small group. There is something about focusing together on a particular topic, supported by multiple resources, that helps people grow in their personal relationship with God. We have therefore worked hard to create multiple resources, allowing everyone to learn together, not just on a Sunday or at a small group, but every single day of the week.
