Strive Friday – March 2019

This month’s Strive Friday is coming soon!

What’s Strive Friday?  A chance to chill out and do life with a bunch of mates.  No agenda, no plan, just a relaxed venue and a bunch of friendly faces.

You know it might just be a great place to debate the one, the only definitive Strive Top Five!

Invite your friends & just come and join us. Simple.

Friday March 22nd, from 7:00pm at the Organ Inn, Warminster.

What is it like?  Just a bunch of friends, in a pub, doing life.

Where is it? The Organ Inn, 49 High Street, Warminster BA12 9AQ

What shall I bring?  Yourself!  (and any friends)

Is there any cost?  Yes, depending on what you’re drinking.  You’ll find The Organ very reasonable though.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Coffee and Bible

We’re back into 2019!

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

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.
