Strive Friday

Welcome to our inaugural Strive Friday!

So we do breakfasts from time to time.  That’s cool.  But we also know that loads of you struggle with first thing in the morning on a weekend… or any day for that matter!

So here we have – Strive FridayA 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 Feb 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 February 2019

BibleStudyCoffee And Bible

Sunday 17th February is our next 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!)

Last time we completed the Codelife series, and now plan to look at Men of the Bible.

Inspired by the book 52 Men of the Bible, we started a poll to see where we should start, and the top pick was… Timothy!  So that is where we will start this month – I’ll get another poll running on here soon so you can get to vote for the next one.

Sunday Feb 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 by 9pm at the latest.  

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.

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?
