SUNDAY BIBLE TALKS: 1 Thessalonians
Jesus will return.
What really matters while we wait?
The church in First Century Thessalonica was wrestling with this very question, and they were doing so while facing terrible persecution and opposition.
Yet they were full of faith and love – so much so that the good news of Jesus “sounded forth” (or “rang out”) from them.
“May the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all… so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 3:12-13)

MID-WEEK BIBLE READING GROUPS
During the week, we hold bible reading groups in the homes of some of our church members. These groups are small and informal, with no assumed knowledge or beliefs – everyone is welcome. They are the perfect place to find out more about what the bible says and what it means for our lives. We are currently looking at the book “Love Your Church” by Tony Merida, which gives a compelling picture of what church can and should be.
If you find the idea of coming to a group daunting, we’d love to arrange one-to-one study of the bible over a cuppa – so please do get in touch.
We also offer a short interactive course called “Christianity Explored”, which is perfect for those who have questions about the Christian message:
- What is the bible about?
- Who is Jesus?
- What does it all mean for me?
Please let us know if you are interested in this, or have any other questions.
