Evangelism is sharing our Christian faith, but should we do that? Should we talk about our Christian faith? Should we be prepared to give an answer questions that people have? And what about those Christian that are too insensitive, too brash, too clumsy? What if you are not comfortable sharing your faith? We cover all of these questions and more in this weeks Livestream as we carry on our look at the Alpha series.
Who is the Holy Spirit? This is a great question especially as Christians believe that He is as much part of the Trinity as God the Father and Jesus, yet He is also the least understood part of the Trinity. Today, John is going to kick start a two part mini series in our Alpha Course, looking at the Holy Spirit. This is part 8 of the Alpha Series.
This week we are looking at the evidence for believing in Christianity. It's week 4 of our Alpha series, and Matt takes the perspective of a person who has decided to believe the claims of Christianity and asks "How can I be sure they I made the right decision?" If you have been a Christian for a while, or if you are just exploring the Christian faith - this will be a great livestream to explore some of life's more meaningful questions.
This week, Sharon asks who is Jesus? What evidence do we have for Jesus? What claims did Jesus make about Himself? And, should we actually care if He was just a historical figure? Sharon also tells her own story of how she had to come to a point to make her own mind up about Jesus.
There are questions about life we all share (‘Is this it? Where have I come from? Where am I heading? Who am I? What’s the point of my life? Is there any real meaning and purpose to life?’). There are common objections to / preconceptions about Christianity (it is boring, untrue, irrelevant, dangerous). Anna is kickstarting a new Alpha series for us this week and starts by looking at all of these questions.
We are looking at the trial of Jesus and see how people pleasing pleasing caused men to abandon their values, destroyed the leadership of one man and caused hundreds of people to be manipulated in to doing stuff that was fundamentally wrong.
Wherever Jesus went, it seems crowds would gather around him. The crowds could be small, or they could be large but the folks that made up the crowd were all divided in their opinion about this Godman. So how did Jesus deal with the crowd? What was his MO? And what can learn from that for our own digital church? Well, this week, Matt unpacks why we changed the name to CROWD church, what the purpose of the church is and what some of the core principles are.
