COFFEE & bible IS THIS WEEKEND!
This Sunday is our evening spot for some coffee & bible.
So come and join us in the Rose Room (upstairs) at Christ Church, Warminster. We’ll start from 7.30pm (to 8:30ish) 20th May.
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 VI – I will keep my body fit and free of any addiction.
I can vividly remember the first time I read ‘The Code’. This was brilliant – I’d never seen anything like it before. As I read through each one I was like ‘Yes! Come on let’s do this’.
I owe everything to Him and I’ll do anything for Him …‘of course I will – let’s do it!’ I kept on going: I will unashamedly make Him known …?, ‘Well, that goes without saying’. Then I came upon this one, Code VI: I will keep my body fit and free from any addictions. ‘Oh no!’
You see I’m a bit overweight, I weigh 18 stone, I’ve a 38” waist and wear XXL shirts. Technically I’m classed as ‘obese’ and here I have an honour Code that’s challenging me to look after my body and keep it free from addictions – brilliant! Personally, this is the hardest one for me and I struggle with it. But this is the beauty of The Code – Not one of us can look at all the 12 points and think we are OK in all areas and have it covered. We mess up and take our eye of the ball – too many times. Sometimes we are so oblivious and blind to other things that it takes a value system like this to get us thinking, challenged and to open our eyes to the lives God has called us to live.
Sunday May 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 8:30pm.
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.
