Several good reasons why you should attend...

Your Bible study will become more productive: At the end of the course you will be able to use the study tools and knowledge you have gained to understand more about God and His purpose for man as you read your Bible.

The seminars are open to all whether you are new to Bible reading or have read your Bible for years: There’s always something new to learn!

All seminars are completely free of charge. You will never be asked for money or to make a donation of any kind.

Leave at any time. If you ever find the programme inadequate you may leave with no strings attached

Learn and develop skills which enable you to read the Bible with more understanding than ever before. Many people desire to learn but initial frustration discourages and hinders progress.

You are under no obligation. No-one will attempt to “save” or “convert” you or ask you to join any organisation against your will: in fact, they are often attended by people with a wide variety of beliefs or with no religious views at all.

 

Plus...

Everyone attending will receive extensive material for your own notes and class outlines.  These hand-outs will allow you to review the material at your own pace between classes.

I spent many years searching for something, perhaps the meaning of life but every path I took led to a dead end with no anwsers. The Bible Seminars enabled me to take the right path by the message of the truth found in the Bible. I have never looked back and each day has a purpose and the greatest hope I could ever hope for.

Questions others have asked...

Q Will I be asked to be “saved” or “join” the Christadelphians at the end of the seminars?

A No! You will not be pressured during or at the completion of the classes. Our hope is that the classes will encourage you to draw your own conclusions about God and His plan. These classes will equip you with necessary tools to make your own decisions about what you have learned.

Q Why are you doing this?

AThe Bible is scarcely read in today’s fast-paced society. Our faith and belief in God motivates us to share His message and Truth. We believe that the Bible teaches us what is right and good in directing our lives and families. In Christ’s day, the apostles spread the Gospel message and the commandments of God. We also feel compelled to make known to all who would listen the wonderful plan God has for the Earth.

Q What if everyone there knows more than I do?

AThe classes are run in such a way as to make everyone feel comfortable. No-one is ever put “on the spot”.

Q Who will be paying for the seminars?

A All costs are being paid for by the Christadelphians in the area.

Please note:

  • Everything is provided at the seminars including the Bibles.
  • There are no charges for the seminar series.
  • No advanced preparation is required.

I had many unanswered questions. By attending the seminars I found my way around the Bible and found all the answers I needed. What a revelation!

About The Presenters

The presenting team are experienced in actively teaching both groups and individuals in the area. As Christadelphians they are committed to Bible study and hope to assist you in a fuller appreciation and understanding of the Bible.

About The Christadelphians

Christadelphians adopted their name in the mid 1800’s. It means “Brothers (and Sisters) in Christ”. Christadelphians are to be found in countries all over the world. They are bound together by a common faith in the Gospel preached by Christ and His apostles in the first century. It was this faith and its appeal to men and women from all walks of life which brought the community into existence.

Christadelphians do not believe that any of their members, past or present, have received any special revelation from God. The faith of the Christadelphians rests solely on the Bible as the inspired Word of God. They do not have a paid ministry or a central organisation.

Tewkesbury Christadelphians meet at the Tewkesbury Library, Sun Street, Tewkesbury. You can visit our website at tewkesburylightstand.co.uk.
