In the book of Acts we find a story of a traveler on his way back from Jerusalem to his home country in Ethiopia. The traveler was an important government official.
As he travels along he is reading through the scriptures in the book of Isaiah.
We then find that Philip (who was a disciple of Jesus) ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading.
Philip asks him a great question; "Do you understand what you are reading?"
The traveler replies; "How can I," he said, "unless someone explains it to me?"
So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him." (Acts 8:30-31)
Philip joined him in the chariot and the rest of the chapter tells us that Philip was able to answer questions that he had by looking together at the scriptures.
From that day the traveller's life was changed.
We believe in studying the bible with others as a way to discover more about God and his plans for people.
We love to meet up together and study the bible looking at topics such as discipleship, marriage, parenting and pre-teen & teen
A tea, coffee or hot chocolate and a flick through the scriptures with a believer in God can dramatically change your life and can answer many of the questions you may have.
We invite you to to join us for a study of the scriptures.
Please contact us to set up a time.
Some of the topics we regularly find help people:
• Seeking God (how, when and why?)
• The Word of God (what does the bible say about itself?)
• God's promises and plan (what does it mean to you?)
• Sin (what does the bible really say?)
• Repentance (what does it mean?)
• Grace in the Cross - (what really happened and what was it for?)
• Baptism (what, who, when & why?)
Some of our studies for young people are:
• Introducing God
• How to Pray
• Falling in love with God
• Deceit & Purity
• Pride & Humility
• Relationship with the family
Further on in the book of Acts the bible tells us about the character and integrity of a group of people from a place call Berea.....
"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true."
These guys were genuine in their desire for truth and eager to be right with God.
Come and be a Berean with us! (Connect)
