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 Online?

We appreciate that distance can be a barrier, and we have seen God work powerfully in and through people using Zoom technology. One thing we have definitely found is that being online is no barrier to God moving among us! Many times we have experienced Gods presence and transforming power in online worship, powerful talks and great coaching groups. In fact the testimonies of students this past year have increased more than ever! So we feel that this year is a great time to continue the reach of the School and give people the opportunity to journey with us in a live setting, but online!

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! The SSL Online Course meets online via Zoom about three Thursdays a month, plus two Fridays and Saturdays over the course of the year. The SSL Online course is accessible by anyone with an internet connection! 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 2021-2022 year?

We will be starting on Thursday 8th October 2021 with Graduation on the 7th July 2022. There is also a Father Heart weekend near the beginning of the course on Friday evening of 15th October and the day of Saturday 16th October. The SSL Online course costs £360 if you are based in UK/Western Europe/US, reducing to £330 with a spiritual sponsor. Fees for students from other countries are reduced to £72. If you are in full-time Christian ministry in the developing world the course is free, although contributions to cover speakers' costs are appreciated.

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 (8th and 9th 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 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, another nation 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 across the world and our passion is to serve and not compete, and to love our nations 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
