Frequently Asked Questions

Why the School of Supernatural Life?

Because we have a loving Father who calls us to do incredible things? In one mind-blowing moment Jesus said those who ”believe in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these”! (John 14:12) This happened as Jesus taught and led his disciples into encounters with him where they discovered who they were, lived in relationship with Him, and become those who “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). SSL is a 3-termly journey to encounter more of Jesus, be transformed and to dare to believe for more. This is your time. Come and join us!

Why SSL Live and SSL @ Home?

We appreciate that distance can be a barrier, and we have seen God work powerfully in and through people using Zoom technology. So we feel that this year is a great time to increase the reach of the School and give people the opportunity to journey with us in a live setting, but at home!

What can I expect of SSL?

We love worship and times of intense intimacy with God. We actively seek encounters with Him where we are changed and transformed. We also have fun and encourage each other to go further, do new things with activations (exercises to learn from), testimonies, outreach and some great teaching and ministry from a wide range of speakers. We do life in smaller encouragement groups and we are a great family! Practically, the SSL Live course meets about three Wednesdays a month, four Saturdays and two Fridays over the academic year. By being a primarily evening based school we want to be as accessible as possible to those working full or part-time. The SSL @ Home Course has the same curriculum, but meets online via Zoom about three Thursdays a month, plus two Fridays and Saturdays over the course of the year. The SSL @ Home would work for those outside of the Milton Keynes area and those overseas. Expect a year of refreshing, life changing encounters and challenges that will inspire you!

What is the entrance criteria?

That you are hungry for more and willing to commit to a 9-month journey of discovery, encounter and adventure. Also that you are willing to have fun on the way as part of the SSL family. We have seen people from age 18 to 81 do SSL and love it! It is a great training to do as a gap year before going to university too.

What are the key dates and costs for the 2020-2021 year?

We will be starting on Wednesday 30th September 2020 with Graduation on the 3rd July 2021. For SSL Live and for SSL @ Home the cost is £300 (with a Spiritual Sponsor).

Is there an attendance allowance?

The journey is important to us, and for you to graduate from SSL you will need to complete the majority of the sessions including the Father Heart weekend (9th and 10th of October). We allow for a maximum of six missed sessions over the year. You will also need to complete the home studies each term and book reflections.

Can I come and see what SSL is like?

Yes, certainly. We run multiple taster nights which we advertise through the year. It is free to come and taste the SSL flavour! Please book in by the link provided or email us on so we can organise refreshments and welcome you well!

What is the interview process?

After applying, we will arrange an interview with you for two of the team to get to know you, go over the expectations and the challenge of the course and then pray for and encourage you. Interviews are normally at the Ridgeway Centre but may also be over Zoom, Skype or Facetime.

Does it matter what church I am from?

You are welcome whether you are from another church in Milton Keynes, from further afield or not currently attending a church at all! SSL is a Christian ministry school of New Life Church Milton Keynes, but the team includes people from many churches in Milton Keynes, which we love and celebrate! We have a set of core values and are affiliated to the Bethel Ministry School whist being under the oversight of New Life Church Milton Keynes. We love the body of Christ and our passion is to serve and not compete, and to love our city into life!

What if my English or writing skills are not as strong?

We have had many students whose first language has not been English. All of the material and teaching will be in English but we also want to be as inclusive as possible so we can provide audio books and/or time extensions for the book reflections. Also some students have used artwork or other creative ways of describing their journey. Audio downloads and other resources are available on the student area of
