Gospel Meeting

Why is it called a "Gospel Meeting"?

Let us explain.

Firstly, the word Gospel means good news.

In the Bible, the good news specifically is that God has provided a Saviour for us. Whoever will turn from sin and receive Him, believing that He bore the judgement of God due to them for their sin, will be freely forgiven and possess eternal life.

The Gospel is defined in the New Testament by the apostle Paul in these words:

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, ----

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

1Corinthians 15:1-4

The meeting is to simply lay out these great foundations of the christian faith.

The meeting is intended for everyone, and especially newcomers. 

It has a very simple form: two or three hymns and an opening prayer, then the gospel is taught using the Bible as the sole authority, then a closing prayer and sometimes a closing hymn.

Just come in, sit where you wish and listen.

The meeting lasts between 45 minutes and an hour.

We have a different speaker each week, drawn from the surrounding area.

You will be made welcome, but not pressured into unwelcome discussion.
