Thursday 15th November 2018 19:30Midweek Focus Bible Study 21 Barry Road John's Gospel (1)Wouldn't it be fascinating to meet someone who actually walked and talked with Jesus? John the apostle knew Jesus first-hand, and in his gospel, he opens our hearts to the Master he loved and followed. This 42-week series reveals Jesus as the Son of God who existed before time began. As Jesus launched His public ministry and interacted with people, we can see ourselves in each person Jesus met-the religious seeker Nicodemus, the shunned woman at the well, the lame man waiting his entire life for a healing touch from God. And with each word Jesus spoke, we can feel His compassion and power. As you read John's gospel, you're right there with the Master. That's why even a most hardened sceptic can find John's account of Jesus' invitation to believe in Him impossible to resist. A warm welcome awaits all interested in sharing in these times of midweek fellowship. Meetings are held at 21 Barry Road on Thursdays from 7.30 to 9 pm. Study notes for the current and previous series can be found on the Midweek Focus page of this website. For further information, contact Graham Suttie on 01241 852614 or email graham.suttie@btinternet.com

19:30Midweek Focus Bible Study 21 Barry Road John 1: 1-18Like any great musical work, John’s gospel opens with a lyric prelude preparing us for something wonderful to come. In fact, the first 18 verses of chapter 1 are prelude to John’s symphonic unveiling of the deity of Jesus. As a prelude sets a melodic theme for the wider musical work, so John’s opening words introduce a recurring motif: Jesus Christ is God. And John gives us four reasons why we can hold to such a belief.

 16 Days of Activism: Day 1 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence - DAY 1: Introduction ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.’ Martin Luther King Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. It also marks the first day of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence. Between 25 November and 10 December, individuals, groups and organisations around the world use these 16 days to raise awareness of gender-based violence, speak up against it and inspire people to do what they can to end it. Please join us in praying about this huge issue, and the people affected by it. God, we pray that throughout the next 16 days, our hearts and minds will be open to better understand the reality of gender-based violence and how we can come together to end it. Amen.

Monday 26th November 2018 16 Days of Activism: Day 2 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence - DAY 2: South Africa ‘Now I’m empowered, a beautiful woman, speaking out against any sexual violence in my community. I am strong. I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge with my community and the whole world.’ Esperande, South Africa Esperande is a survivor of sexual and gender-based violence, and is now a ‘champion’ member of the 547 Survivor Movement, which Tearfund helped set up. She has been invited to speak to global audiences about the needs of survivors of violence and the importance of movements like 547. Please pray that the strength of survivors like Esperande, and their willingness to speak up, will have a huge impact. Pray that community members will listen to what they have to say, and change behaviours that are causing harm.

Tuesday 27th November 2018 16 Days of Activism: Day 3 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence - DAY 3: Nigeria ‘I have learnt that I have a right to choose and decide what I do with my body.’ Abigail, Nigeria Abigail is the executive secretary of a survivors’ movement in Fobur, central Nigeria. She has been empowered by the knowledge that a woman has a right to her own body and can refuse sexual demands from a man. Ask God to open the eyes of women in abusive relationships, that they will recognise their rights and move towards the restoration of broken relationships and lives.

Wednesday 28th November 2018 16 Days of Activism: Day 4 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence - DAY 4: DRC ‘Now I am raising my sheep and I am once again part of the community. People don’t just see me as a rape victim, they see me as me.’ Maman Jacqueline, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Maman Jacqueline is part of a project run by Tearfund together with the Anglican Church in North Kivu, DRC. She was given a sheep and some beans to plant, as well as training and support to make the most of what she received. As a result, she was able to go from being a destitute outsider, to an active and thriving member of her community. ‘I hope to pay for my children’s school fees and other needs we have. When my sheep have some lambs I will keep one and sell the other at market,’ says Jacqueline. ‘Later I will be able to buy clothes, which will remind me of the project and will be a good memory.’ Pray for peace in DRC and other countries where gender-based violence is rife in conflict, and praise God for the work of Tearfund staff and partners restoring the lives of people like Jacqueline.

19:30Midweek Focus Bible Study 21 Barry Road John 1: 19-28It would be an understatement to say John the Baptist swam upstream. He broke with all religious convention—not only in his message but also in his methods. Yet what genuinely marked him was his rare humility. John emerged on the scene as an enigmatic prophet in the wilderness, prior to Jesus beginning His ministry, and as a self-described “fore-runner” of Israel’s promised Messiah. John’s parents were Zechariah and Elizabeth, both elderly people whom God graciously surprised with a baby, lifting the shame of barrenness and bestowing blessing instead (Luke 1:5–25). Luke reveals to us that, from John’s boyhood until the day of his public ministry, John lived in the deserts (1:80). During that time, he was clothed in camel’s hair, wore a leather belt, and ate a steady diet of locusts and wild honey (Mark 1:6). He offered a fire-and-brimstone call to repentance to prepare the way for Jesus (Matthew 3). We will look closely at this fiery preacher and proclaimer of Jesus. Together, we’ll learn the value of genuine humility as a precursor for releasing the power of Christ through us.
Friday 30th November 2018 St Andrew's Day
 16 Days of Activism: Day 6 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence - DAY 6: Brazil ‘Taking part in the workshop had quite a positive impact on my life, both on a family level and in the ministry I carry out with the other church leaders.’ Silas Araújo, Brazil Silas, a leader at the Baptist Church in Lago Norte em Palmas, Brazil, was invited to attend a Transforming Masculinities workshop run by a Tearfund partner. These workshops challenge cultural norms and practices, and encourage men to be part of the solution to gender-based violence. ‘Issues are now discussed openly... allowing changes of habit and mentality,’ Silas says. Praise God and pray for the Transforming Masculinities workshops, both in Brazil and around the world. Pray that this vital work will grow, and that harmful attitudes among men will be changed.
