starting again on 8th and 11th May 2017
We value reading and learning from the Bible since it is the foundation of our faith. Its teaching never goes out of date because God and people have not changed. In the Old Testament we read of how God made the world and tried to establish a relationship with us, which we kept breaking until we were almost completely out of touch with him. The prophets looked forward to a time when God would do something new to bring us back to God. This special agent or Messiah would be identified with God Himself.
In the New Testament we read of the coming to earth of this rescuer, Jesus. We read of his life, his teachings and miracles, his death and resurrection, God who became a man. We read then of what his disciples did in spreading the message about Jesus as rescuer. Paul and others write letters to encourage the early Christians in their relationships with the risen Jesus and with one another.
Our home groups last an hour and include prayers at the end. Sometimes the sessions are grouped by theme and sometimes we study a book. The emphasis is not on academic study but on finding out what the Bible is saying to us about how we should run our personal and church lives.
House Groups begin again the week beginning Monday 8th May with a series called Growing the Church, using passages from Acts, covering Paul’s first missionary journey. It will help us see that we too can grow the Church with small numbers and with people being distracted by many other ideas and agendas.
House groups resume at the usual venues. Our subject, in line wih our sermons, will be God’s Good News ie what we and others need to know and share.
