We have a public Bible Hour every Sunday. The plan for the next few weeks looks like this, God Willing:
22nd July, 6pm:
“A New Life in Christ, by grace you are saved”
“Life” is something we all have. How can we have a new life? And how can that take place without something awful happening to us first? Is this the same thing as being “born again” – and is it optional? All these questions will be answered by looking at what the Bible teaches.
29th July, 6pm:
“God rules in the kingdoms of men”
We live in a turbulent world. Leaders come and go, wars are constantly in the news, and who can predict what will really happen with Brexit? The Bible shows us that actually God is in control of all these events, and is using them to further His purpose with the earth.
5th August, 2:30pm:
“God’s solution to world problems”
We might think there is no end in sight to the challenges the modern world faces. But in the Bible, the solution is made very clear: Jesus will return and set up God’s kingdom over all the earth. And we can be involved in it.
12th August, 6pm:
“The Good Samaritan”
Why is a parable which Jesus told 2,000 years ago still important? What can it possibly teach us about how we live our lives in a country and a time far removed from that original telling? And what did it all mean anyway?
19th August, 6pm:
“Faith is the Key to Salvation”
There are plenty of stories of people who have lived selfless charitable lives and done wonderful things to help others. While that’s no bad thing, the Bible shows that good deeds alone are not enough for God to be pleased with us. Instead faith is the key, and the means by which we are saved, by the grace of God.
26th August, 6pm:
“The Bible and Archaeology”
There is a constantly-growing interest in archaeology, and what it can reveal about the past lives of our ancestors. But it is also slowly proving more and more figures and places from the Bible are historically accurate. What does this mean for Bible critics, and is its evidence enough to prove the Bible true?
These Bible hours are all friendly evenings in which a Bible subject is presented in a straightforward way. Each week there is a different subject and a different presenter. (Why?)
