Bible Study

For this last weeks bible study we had 9 guests to study Matthew 5  and 6.

We discussed verse 43 “Love your enemies” and how difficult it is for a homeless person when they are attacked without provocation..
We can only pray for God’s protection for all of His children whether housed or homeless.

Bible Study

This week we studied Matthew 4 v 1 – 11, focusing on the third temptation of Christ in the wilderness.

Three guests joined us in the study.
We discussed how people today worship idols without realising it.
The message “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near” is just as relevant today as in bible days.
We must put aside those things that stop us from worshipping God in our lives.
Pray that our guests who believe in Jesus can move forward in their relationship with God.
Becoming part of a local church can make a big difference and yet few of them have found a church that they are comfortable in,

Bible Study

This week we began to study Matthews Gospel with 5 of our guests.

Genealogies can seem uninteresting at first, however Matthew begins with the lineage of Jesus to show God’s grace goes right back to Abraham.

With this wonderful hind sight we can all be encouraged when we see how God used Abraham, David and Rahab as flawed people, to fulfil His purposes, it encourages us who are also flawed by sin.

We have invited 2 guests to attend a Christianity Explored course at All Souls Church in February.
Pray that they will go and learn more about Jesus, who can give us a fresh start.

Bible Study

This week we had 5 guests studying and discussing John 18 & 19.
We discussed the question “What is truth?” which is so hard to find in todays world.
If we cant trust politicians to tell the truth who can we trust?
Only Jesus tells us complete truth and this truth is in His word.

Pray for guests who have been let down by the systems politicians have set up which have made life difficult for them.

We can trust Jesus always!

Bible Study

We were joined by 5 guests this week around the Word of God.

We studied John 16 v 17 – 34 and discussed how the disciples must have felt as Jesus explained
that “in a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me, because I am going to the Father”

After discussing further with the disciples Jesus exclaimed “You believe at last!
Sometimes we just have to trust and believe in Jesus, even though the circumstances make us fearful.
Remember Jesus words in verse 33, “But take heart! I have overcome the world”.

Bible Study

We had a good study this week as 12 of us gathered around God’s Word to study Chapter 14 of John’s gospel.

It begins with “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.”

Many people coming to Webber Street have “troubled hearts” and yet we have a gospel which can turn sorrow into joy by the power of the Holy Spirit..

Pray for those guests who come to the Bible Study, that they may encounter Jesus for themselves in a real and powerful way.

Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me”

Pray also that the Father will reveal Himself to our guests, as many of them have never known the love of an earthly father and so find it difficult to comprehend God’s love for them.

Bible Study

We had 10 guests gathered around the Word to study John 13 v 31 – 38.


We read how Jesus predicted Peter’s denial of Christ and yet Peter vowed to lay down his life for Jesus.
Despite Peter’s failure Jesus restored him later. This gives us great encouragement as all of us have failed
Him at times and yet Jesus restores us too, because He loves us so much.


Pray for our guests who are struggling against addictions, that they will turn to Jesus for help and forgiveness.
