What is Coffee with Christ?
During the last week of every month we have small groups of people who meet together in informal settings, i.e. homes, coffee shops, cafes, etc. to discuss biblical topics that are produced by our minister Stephen Richmond. The Coffee with Christ sheet contains a discussion theme with a supporting Bible reading and a number of questions to help stimulate discussion.
Who can participate in Coffee with Christ?
Our Coffee with Christ groups are open to everyone to join so come along and invite your friends and neighbours too.
If you would like to join a existing group, create a new group or just learn more about Coffee with Christ please use the contact us form or talk to the minister or any Church Elder.
Coffee with Christ
Salt and light
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
