Want to know more about the Christian faith? We may have just the thing for you. We are holding All Age Services on the first Sunday of each month. They are especially for people who want to explore what following Jesus might mean for them. The meetings will include prayer, the singing of hymns and a simple message exploring an aspect of Christian teaching from the Bible. Our aim is to make these services as accessible as possible for children and adults alike. You won’t need to be a regular church goer to get something out of them. Light refreshments will be served following the meeting.
It has been said that the Christian faith is a pool in which elephants can swim and children can paddle. Adopting an attitude of faith seeking understanding, some of the greatest minds in history have failed to plumb the depths of what God says about himself in the Bible. Our finite human minds cannot fully comprehend the infinite God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Yet the essential message of Christianity is simple and straightforward.
It’s all about Jesus and us. Jesus is the one through whom we were made who became one of us. He died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the dead to bring us back to God. The church exists to tell people about Jesus and to equip those who believe in him to follow the Lord in their daily lives.
The next All Age ‘Explore’ Service will be on 7 January, 10.30am at Providence Baptist Chapel. We hope it will be a great way to start the New Year. None of us knows what 2018 is going to bring, but God does and he is able to help and guide us as we entrust our lives to him. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11).
