Bible Class

Held at 8.00pm every Wednesday

When Paul went to Berea in Macedonia, the Jews of the synagogue listened carefully to his teaching and then checked that what he had been saying complemented the Old Testament writings. They were commended by God because they were prepared to consider what Paul was saying with an open mind.

Paul instructed Timothy to continue in his love of God’s word. He explained that all the Bible is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. Paul explained that the Bible provided all he needed to be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

When writing to the believers in Rome, Paul explained that the stories in the Bible have been recorded to teach us how to live in Christ. The Bible is there to increase our patience and strengthen our hope.

In Psalm 119 we read “Oh, how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day” and “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”.

Christadelphians appreciate the importance of Bible reading and study. We try to read the Bible daily, following the Bible Companion, a Bible reading planner which guides us through the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice in a year.

On Wednesday evenings at 8.00pm we meet at the Lye Christadelphian Hall to enjoy shared Bible study. The meeting includes hymns, prayers and a Bible reading, but the main focus is a talk centred on in-depth Bible study. It is primarily intended for our own members and those used to a detailed study of God’s word. However the meeting is open to the public, and we would welcome your company.43
