Thinking Like a Christian

7:30pm Starting Sunday 26th April 2020.

Join us to learn to think like a Christian! From April to June we are looking at

Who do you think you are? How the Church came to be what she is today.

We’ll be looking at some key moments in the history of the church, when Christians who went before us wrestled with some big problems, worked out (with a lot of sweat and blood) what the Bible is teaching us, and sometimes made some big mistakes. It’ll help us understand our Bibles better, and apply it to some big issues for today.

The history of the Church is a vast (and wonderful) subject, and we will barely scratch the surface. I’ve chosen some topics that are particularly important for understanding why the church as we know it in Britain today is like it is, and for helping us understand how to apply the Biblical gospel to our lives today.

We will meet by Zoom each week at 7:30pm on Sunday evenings.
