Big Questions

Come and join us as we think about these BIG questions during three Sundays in September.

big questionsWhy am I always looking for more?

Why would you let the Bible shape your life?

Why would a good God allow people to suffer?

Sundays 10th, 17th and 24th September

We will be tackling these questions during our normal Sunday services:

9.15 and 11am at Farnham Baptist Church, GU9 7HA

or 10am at Grace Church Wrecclesham, GU9 8TF

glad you asked logoWhy not come along and have a think about these important questions.  And if you’d like to keep thinking about them, we’ll be starting a course on Thursday evenings called Glad You Asked.  This provides an informal setting to chew over more of these big questions.  The course is discussion-based giving plenty of opportunity for all to share their views.  We’d love to hear yours!

Glad You Asked starts on 28th September at 8pm.  For more information, contact Phil Sweeting by email or on 01252 726 830.

Helping kids to know Jesus

A training evening for parents, Sunday school teachers, kid’s ministry volunteers, teachers, grandparents, anyone who knows kids and wants them to know Jesus!

This event has now passed, but the talks will be uploaded here in the next few days, so check back soon!

 

After a short introductory session all together, we split into three streams:

  1. Preparing a bible teaching session for under 11s from scratch!
  2. Leading a session with real, live, wriggly, naughty children, and doing more than just surviving it!
  3. Family worship. Teaching kids about Jesus in the other 167 hours of the week. For parents and carers.
