For our Bible Study we meet with Christians from other local churches of all types (denominations) under the banner of Christians in the (Charnwood) Forest. The meetings are informal, include prayer and Bible study with discussions about our faith and how it informs our daily lives. Everybody joins in taking a turn to read from the Bible or offer an opinion – the atmosphere is relaxed, inclusive and always open to new members. The courses can be joined at any time. There is a social side too. Every meeting begins with tea and coffee and a time to catch up with the news from old and new friends.

NEW YEAR COURSE: Isaiah Prophet to the Nations by John Houghton
“Isaiah is the Messianic prophet above all others. He sought to address the spiritual bankruptcy and hypocrisy of God’s chosen nation and to point forward to the One who would come to save all nations. He speaks of not only the first coming of Christ, but the second coming also – he is a prophet for us today! This Bible study looks at some of the main themes in the first half of the book of Isaiah, enabling individuals and groups to grasp an overall picture of this passage of Scripture, as well as grapple with key biblical concepts held within it, including holiness, atonement, salvation and evangelism.” John Houghton

If you have not been to one of our meetings before why not give it a try. The meetings, which are informal, include prayer and study of the Bible with discussions about our faith and how it informs our daily lives. Such discussions are topical and can range widely. Don’t worry! It’s not all about theology!!
It is not necessary to attend all the meetings as each evening’s study and discussion is complete so please feel free to drop in and out. I look forward to seeing you – Gary
