How to win the race of life


Being just across the river from the Washlands, every July we are able to watch the Burton Regatta from the Boat House.

Many people have a love of competitions, of sport and of winning! We love to share in celebrations, relive the race countless times after the event, and know that our team has proved itself to be the best. But did you know that the Bible also talks about races and victories?

The Bible says that one of the best things about knowing the Gospel message is that we can all share in the victory of the race for life. Jesus was the winner of this race – the first man to be given immortal life – but we can all share the victory with him if we choose. This is how we win the ‘race of life’.  As the Apostle Paul said, “I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. There is laid up for me the crown of righteousness.” (2 Timothy 4v7-8).

You can explore this idea with us – either by reading through this website, or by coming and talking to us. We like to think we’re very friendly and will talk to anyone about the Bible – whatever background or previous thoughts you’ve had. You’ll find that we are different from many churches – we have no paid minister, for example, and our only authority comes from the Bible itself. Do have a look around and explore our site!
