Coffee and Bible

BibleStudyCoffee And Bible

We’re back into 2019!

Sunday 20th January is our evening spot for some coffee & bible.

Come and join us in the Rose Room (upstairs) at Christ Church, Warminster. We’ll start from 7.30pm (to 8:30ish).

These catch-ups consist of a relaxed chat through a chapter or two from a book of the bible, of course with a coffee. (other drinks are available if necessary!)

Currently we’re looking at our partner organisation CVM’s Codelife study.  Don’t worry if you’ve not been before – these are easy dip in/dip out stand alone sessions (as well as a great series!).  You can read more here www.codelife.org.

This month we will look at;

Codelife – CODE XII –  If I fail I will not give up. He never gives up on me.

We all face our mountains, but what happens when we fail and fall? So many men are in church hiding away because they failed and feel like the battle has taken them out.  It is not over, and Jesus doesn’t allow us to give up, he never gives up on us!  How do we stand and fight again?  How do we guard against becoming overrun?

Sunday Jan 20th, from 7:30pm in the Rose Room (upstairs), Christ Church, Warminster.  We plan to make these meetings fit in everyday life, so we promise to finish at 9pm.  

What is it like?  We take a chapter or two, read it through together & chat about what we find. Absolutely no experience of the bible is necessary, all you need is a thirst to find out more & a willingness to share in a safe environment.

Where is it? We will meet in the Rose Room (upstairs in the main church), Christ Church, Warminster; see map below.

What shall I bring?  Yourself!  We will supply coffee/tea and a bible if you like.

Is there any cost?  No, not a bean!

Look forward to seeing you there.
