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.

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 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.  

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.

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!

Code Unleashed

code-unleashed

Code Unleashed is a chance to get out into the open, have a laugh with some other guys, ‘walk on the wild side’ in the great outdoors, but more importantly spend time connecting with God, maybe for the first time! Oh and of course … eat!

As Christian men, by nature we take our place fighting in a ‘greater battle’. So at the Code Unleashed day, along with your men’s group, mates or just by yourself, we’ll look to deepen our understanding and commitment to serving God side-by-side as a ‘band of brothers’.

It’s also an event you can bring a ‘not-yet-believing’ mate to. Someone who may be ready to take that next step in his journey closer to Jesus, build a fire with you, or both!

You’ll get ‘tooled-up’ to stand stronger in the spiritual battles that take place in our families, work places, communities and churches. Even in our own lives.
