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.
What does it mean when God guides us? It's a question we all want to know the answer to. In this weeks online church livestream we hear four stories that highlight four different ways that God guides us as we dig deeper into this whole topic in conversation street.
This week we look at how to read the bible. The bible is one of those books that we all know about but where do we begin? In the talk, we tackle one of the most common questions we are asked: how to study the bible? After the talk, we chat about your questions about this whole topic including the important question we all have: is the bible reliable? Is it really the word of God?
It's week five of our Alpha series and we're asking the questions like How and Why do we pray. Prayer is normal for a lot of people, even those that don't really have a faith but why do we do it? We'll be hearing from some friends who will be sharing their experiences of prayer and how this builds their relationship with God.
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, Pete looks at one of the most asked questions about the Christian faith - why do we always talk about the death of Christ? Why is it so important that He was hung on a cross? Why do Christians wear a cross around their neck? Isn't it all a bit morbid? Or is there more to it than that?
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.
In a short message, Sally will be unpicking the topic of betrayal and abandonment by sharing her own, difficult story as well as looking at how Jesus dealt with being betrayed and abandoned by His closest friends.
Where do you currently get your sense of meaningful connection and belonging from? It's a great question to ask yourself. Let's look at the Last Supper, a meal Jesus has with disciples and look at some amazing promises He makes about how we can belong, how we can find meaningful connection.
