CHESTERFIELD CHRISTIANS TOGETHER FOR LENT COURSE

Starting 6th March in ecumenical home groups across the town we are getting together to study the brand new York Course called 'Receiving Christ.'  The groups meet on different days and at different times of day so there is bound to be at least one that fits around your busy schedule.  There are 5 studies to complete with input from some very interesting people.

To all who received him … he gave power to become children of God.’ (John 1.12.) 

This raises big questions: Aren't we all children of God anyway?

Just how can we receive Christ?  What does it mean to have a 'relationship with Christ'?


Session 1:    Receiving Christ: as children of God

Session 2:    Receiving Christ: in the stranger and the needy

Session 3:    Receiving Christ: in Holy Communion   

Session 4:    Receiving Christ: through prayer and fellowship

Session 5:    ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’ (Colossians 1.27)


The participants on the course CD are:The Rt Revd Nick Baines, Bishop of LeedsMargaret SentamuRevd Dr Ken Howcroft, former President of Methodist ConferenceTheodora Hawksley, RC TheologianIn a course crammed with discussable questions, John Young teases out from the New Testament at least three different ways in which we receive Christ. John’s course booklet is supplemented by four leading Christians, from a variety of backgrounds, on the course CD. Together they demonstrate that St John’s theology in his Gospel has very practical implications for our day-to-day lives.
