Jesus, the Bread of Life
Sanderstead Bible Week – The Word of God, Fresh for Today
13-17 August 2018
I was really pleased by last year’s 2017 Bible Week, not only because the speakers were so encouraging and helpful, but also because of the comments I received on the feedback forms. For example, “Enjoyable and helpful." "Each day I came away with something new to think about..." "I was encouraged to look at the Psalms in a new light... " "I feel very pleased to have attended. A splendid idea!..." "I looked forward to attending each day..." |All of the speakers were excellent”
Bible Week this year, 2018, will run from Monday 13th to Friday 17th August, in All Saints Church with meetings at 3pm and 8pm. The aim is still the same: to help us go deeper into our faith in Jesus Christ, and to enjoy God more. Bible Week is for anyone who wants to learn to follow Jesus, read the Bible with understanding, and gain spiritual food from it. As it says in 1 Peter 2:2, ‘Like new-born babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation’.
The speaker’s programme is close to being sorted. I am delighted that Rev Dr Simon Stocks is once again coming to speak at our 3pm meetings. He’ll pick a theme from the Old Testament, maybe on the biblical vision of life devoted to the one true God, or looking at some of the ‘problematic’ issues, e.g. creation and evolution; violence and holy war; sacrifice; slavery and patriarchy. We wait with interest to see what Simon decides on!
The theme for the 8pm meetings will be ‘The Names of Jesus’. Among the speakers are: Richard Moy, vicar of Christ Church Chiswick. I met Richard earlier this year and was so encouraged and impressed by his warm love of the Lord and the bible. His topic will be ‘The Good Shepherd’. It will be biblical and also practical. Then there’s Tom Thompson, senior minister at Croydon Vineyard church. Tom and Lesley his wife started the church a few years ago from scratch; now they have well over 200. Tom’s preaching is clear, incisive and honours the Lord. I hope that your appetite is suitably whetted!
There is no advance booking, and no charge, though we do ask for donations to cover expenses and a gift for the speakers. But please do put the dates in your
