Bible Study resources

Whilst our homegroups are not able to physcially meet, we hope that people can find different ways either online, on the phone or via email to connect with one another, to encourage one another and to grow in our faith. We are so thankful to Rev'd Brian Parfitt for putting together a weekly Bible Study, which can be accessed below:

 

At the moment we are journeying together through the Beatitudes.

 

Beatitudes week 9
This week's study is a last 'round-up' look at the Beatitudes. It focuses particularly on the Beatitudes as a pattern of the Christlike character which will show something of God to those around us. Next week we will begin looking at Paul's letter to the Philippians - a really encouraging letter about life as a Christian.

Beatitudes week 8
Most of us have encountered opposition for our faith. In many places persecution is a bigger reality. This week our Bible study focuses on the final Beatitude which gives encouragement to those suffering for their faith. Next week we will conclude our Beatitudes studies with a concluding overview of all the Beatitudes.

Beatitudes week 7
One issue resulting from the current crisis is that many relationships are under pressure. We have also been challenged about Black Lives Matter. This week's Beatitudes study is quite relevant then as it looks at 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children Of God.'

Beatitudes week 5
This week's BIBLE STUDY ON THE BEATITUDES looks at 'Blessed are the merciful'. The last few weeks have demonstrated how important showing mercy can be as we have seen acts of kindness as people have supported others. This study gives us a chance to reflect on that as well as mercy shown in forgiving.

This week's study is based on the Beatitude. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,' which encourages us in our longing to know God and live for him. There has been positive feedback from people doing the studies. Do make time for them if you can.

Beatitudes week 1
Our study this week is the first of a series exploring what we know as 'the Beatitudes' from Jesus' teaching in his 'Sermon on the Mount'. Homegroup leaders had settled on the Beatitudes as our theme for this term. This seemed still relevant as they talk about Christian character, which many of us are finding is being challenged and shaped in these difficult times.
