Public Bible Talk

Held at 6.00pm every Sunday

Just before Jesus ascended into heaven he commanded his disciples to share the good news of his teaching with the world: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptised will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”

The disciples acted on this command and preached in Jerusalem, in Judaea, throughout Israel and eventually throughout the whole of the Roman empire. Through the ages knowledge of the Bible has spread as man has travelled around the world. When talking to the Roman Centurion Cornelius, Peter explained that Jesus had commanded them to preach to the people.

When the leaders of the Jews in Jerusalem were attempting to prevent Peter and the other disciples preaching in the city, Peter defended his actions by saying that he had to share the things which he had seen and heard.

The prophet Jeremiah describes his feelings the time when he tried to stop sharing God’s message with the people: “God’s word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not.”

We too like to share the message of God’s word. Christadelphians are happy to talk about their beliefs at any time and enjoy discussions around the Bible.

So on Sunday evenings at 6.00pm we hold a public Bible talk to which all are invited. The evening is aimed at those who are not Christadelphians. The meeting includes prayers, hymns and a Bible reading. There is a varied programme of talks based around the core principles of the message of the Bible. There is no collection and you will not be asked to make a donation.

Visitors are warmly welcomed and encouraged to stay after the meeting to enjoy our company and some light refreshments.
