June Coffee And Bible

BibleStudyCOFFEE & 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) 17th June.

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 VII – I will put the welfare of those closest to me before
my own welfare.

A few days ago I was chatting to one of my mates who doesn’t know Jesus
(yet!) and he asked me this question: ‘Why doesn’t God do all the huge
demonstrations of His power like you read in the Old Testament? You
know… like parting the Red Sea or sending down a fire ball from heaven. If
He did – I’d believe Him!’
My response was to smile and invite him to my church and more specifically
my men’s group. You see I’m of a belief that the greatest demonstration of
God’s unlimited power is to transform a human heart. It’s to change a
hateful man into a loving man. It’s to take a greedy guy and make him
generous. It’s to take a prejudiced person and make them all inclusive. It’s to
take a bitter person and fll them with peace. It’s to take the alcoholic and
make him clean, addiction free with a new start in life. Our churches and
men’s groups are full of people like this and they are the people I wanted him
to meet.
From the day and hour we surrender our lives to Jesus, that transformation
process begins and as we journey through life with Him day by day, reading
His Word and in relationship with Him, He continues to change us.
But perhaps, like me, one of the first things we realise when we give our life
to Jesus is that life isn’t just about me anymore – then the transformation
really begins!

Sunday June 17th, 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.

April coffee and bible

BibleStudyBIBLE & COFFEE 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) 15th April.

Codelife – CODE V – I will look away from the gutter,
but be prepared to pull people out of it.

Looking away from the depravity we can see all around us is only part of the challenge. Getting your sleeves rolled up and your hands dirty with lives that are ugly, complicated, stinky and lost is another matter all together. As Christians we are called to live Holy lives and part of that process is in how we conduct ourselves and give ourselves in serving others. We’ll consider some subjects that can often open our lives to gutters that pull us away from being the godly men we strive to be.

Sunday April 15th, 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.

Codelife – CODE IV – I will not cheat in anything, personal or professional.
Cheating is something we see all around us, all the time. From gaming, to sports, to personal life and professional life, it’s prevalent in all walks of society, in all classes and ages. So what? Isn’t it just how the world works? Why would being a Christian make a difference to how I feel about cheating? Well, this study wants to talk to you about a commitment to integrity, purity, honesty and truth, continue at your own risk!
