What happens at CSM Basic Seminar?

The CSM Basic Seminar usually lasts for 12-13 weeks and it consists of five seminars and one weekend retreat.  Seminar meetings are held fortnightly or weekly.  For each seminar, there will be a Bible-based video teaching, and a small group discussion in a relaxed and safe environment.  The video teaching and small group discussion can be run on the same day or on separate days.  Each seminar typically lasts for 2 hours.  

It is essential that participants set aside 1 to 2 hours each week to complete homework and course material.  Weekend retreat runs on a Friday evening and all day Saturday, held twice a year, usually in the Spring and Fall. Teaching on additional topics and personal ministry is the highlight of the retreat. Breakthroughs and changes lives are the result.  

Cleansing Stream Basic Seminar runs twice a year through various local churches in Hong Kong, conducted in Chinese, English, and other languages (French, Nepalese, Sri Lankan), and we look forward to expand to more language groups in the future.
