Together

I have been looking for the Bible study group for a while. There are very many Bible study groups and churches in UK – however I could not initially find the one that would really work for me!  Then I found Community Bible Study.  I liked the format of  CBS because from the original sign-up

Fostering disciples!

My husband Peter and I had a wonderful marriage, 4 beautiful biological children and we wanted to help children that were not so fortunate to grow up in a peaceful and safe home. Seven years ago, a lanky beautiful 12-year-old boy, Marcus, came to live with us for 3 months. He was upset to have

Prepare, Partner and Partake

In the Christmas narrative in the gospels, angels appeared at least three times.

No Room!
