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.

Valentines Day (…no bible study)

Christian LoveA quick note to say there will be no men’s bible study this month.

Why?  Because it’s scheduled for Valentines day – Sat 14th Feb!

We realise that a good part of this day is purely centered around boosting the coffers of the florists and chocolatiers.  However, it is also a perfect opportunity to ensure your loved ones know how you feel.

So if you are in a relationship try spending some time considering John 13:34-35 and how that should shape your relationship.

If you are not, then please do spend time praying for the friends & family who are.  There isn’t a relationship that I know of that couldn’t benefit with a dose of prayer!

On that note.  All relationships are rarely straightforward or easy.  Please also take a moment to read through the work of Restored.  Research shows 1 in 3 women globally have experienced violence, and 2 women every week in the UK are killed by a current or former male partner.  Shocking statistics, and it would be good if each of us can take a stand to make a difference.

Be a First Man Standing this Valentines day;

In Memory of the Fallen

In Remembrance

Strive is a group for men and of men in Warminster. This week six men were murdered in Afghanistan. To date over four hundred men and women serving in the British armed services have died in action. This week some of them came from our community.

We reach out to their families in prayer and offer our heartfelt sympathy. And we honour their memories; naming them in our prayers:

Wilford, Daniel, Private, aged 21

Wade, Daniel Private aged 20

Kershaw, Christopher, Private aged 19

Frampton, Anthony, Private aged 20

Hartley, Jake, Corporal, aged 20

Coupe, Nigel, Sergeant, aged 33 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
