Autumn 2016 special talks

On the first Wednesday of each month, we’ll be putting on a series of special talks looking at a range of subjects.

These will be held at 8pm at The New Priestwood Community Centre, Priestwood Court Road, Bracknell, RG42 1TU.

The Bible and science: conflict or consistency?
Wednesday 7th September

An open-minded reading of the Bible readily reveals its emphasis on proof and evidence. This talk will consider the nature of science to distinguish between theoretical ideas which can be tested by experiment, and those which deal with the past and are much more speculative. The idea of a God who not only created the Universe but intervenes in it makes a big difference to your view of science, as Isaac Newton, the famous physicist and Biblical student, could testify.

The speaker is a Christadelphian and a Professor of Experimental Physics at Birmingham University

Resurrection: The Bible’s proof that God raised Jesus from the dead
Wednesday 5th October

The resurrection of Jesus was arguably the single most momentous event in history. This talk will present the watertight case contained in the Bible that God raised Jesus up from the dead after 3 days and 3 nights in the grave, and examine the significance and implications of the fact that he was resurrected “according to the scriptures”, an event which ultimately underpins our own hope of salvation.

Peace in the Middle East
Wednesday 2nd November

The Middle East is one of the most unstable regions in the world and has been throughout recent history. Much of the tension since the middle of the 20th Century has been centred on the land of Israel, and achieving lasting peace in Israel and in the surrounding nations seems an impossible task for mankind. Yet wonderfully God has promised to bring about true, everlasting peace, not only in the Middle East but throughout the whole world; a promise this talk will explore.

Jesus in Genesis
Wednesday 7th December

There are remarkable prophecies about Jesus contained throughout the Old Testament, and some of these can be found as early as the opening chapters of Genesis, the very first book of the Bible. This talk will highlight the consistency of the message of the Old & New Testaments, consider the truth and power of the Genesis record, and explore what we can learn about the Son of God from the earliest chapters of scripture.
