Summer 2017 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 North Ascot Community Centre, Fernbank Road, Ascot, SL5 8LA.

The Bible – A Book of Promise and Hope
Wednesday 5th July

This presentation will concentrate upon three sets of promises made to mankind which are found in the Bible. Firstly, those made to the Nation of Israel regarding its destruction and scattering in AD70 and its re-gathering in our own time. Secondly, promises to the world at large of a glorious future age of peace and righteousness; and finally promises made to individuals which offer the hope of eternal life.

Why is baptism important?
Wednesday 2nd August

Among Jesus’ last words to his disciples before he ascended unto heaven were: ‘He who believes and is baptised will be saved’. Jesus himself was baptised and his followers later baptised thousands of other people. But what does baptism actually mean and why is it relevant today? This talk will look at Old Testament concepts linking to baptism as well as New Testament teaching and examples relating to this important subject, and conclude – as Jesus did – that baptism is essential for salvation.

The reliability of the Bible
Wednesday 13th September

Why can we trust the Bible and its contents? Has it been preserved accurately over the years? This talk will examine these topics and review some of the compelling evidence underpinning the scriptures, in order to assess the Bible’s claim to be the word of God. We will also explore how the Bible grew and was validated, look at reasons to believe the Bible, and consider how it can be relied on to help us in our lives today.
