Health and Spirituality Talks Nottingham

Health and Spirituality Talks Nottingham – Wollaton Park Community Centre Nottingham

Health and Spirituality Talks meetings are organized every Friday evening , starting from 6.30 pm. We normally have 2-3 presentations.

  • One is about Healthy Lifestyle, and we discuss about why do we get sick, how can we live a healthier life, natural remedies for healing etc.
  • A second presentation deals with Christian Apologetics – we present basic Christian topics like: inspiration of the Bible, God’s existence, what happens after death, how did evil appear on this planet, how can we know God etc.
  • A third presentation is about connecting ourselves with God, walking with God, identifying causes which hinder our spiritual growth etc.

Who can participate to this Health and Spirituality Talks?

Everybody is more than welcome, no matter your background, religion, skills, level of education, nationality (as soon as you understand English :-) ). We try to create a family atmosphere, where you can ask questions and get some informed and honest answers.

After each presentation, which lasts 40-45 minutes, we make a short break. If you can’t stay with us the whole evening, there is no problem. Feel free to stay only as much as you can. All presentations are recorded and you can watch them later on YouTube or here, on this website, so you won’t miss anything.

History of Christianity

History of Christianity

History of Christianity – Early Church

The history of Christianity is a very complex one. After the resurrection of Jesus, the apostles and other disciples started to spread the good news and all the teachings they heard from their Master. The first centuries are marked by strong persecution from the Jews who didn’t accept Jesus as the Messiah and after that, from the Roman Empire.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

History of Christianity – Darkness and Apostasy

In the 5th – 15th century, according to secular sources, intellectual darkness and economic regression became “normality” in Europe. Paganism infiltrated gradually in the church.
The Bible was abandoned, prohibited and locked in chains. It was not translated in the language of the people and this is why the spiritual and moral darkness grew fast. Many new doctrines which contradicted the Bible were accepted and promoted by the papal Rome.

History of Christianity Graphic - Light vs Darkness

History of Christianity – Reformers in the Catholic Church – Birth of Protestantism

God’s light was preserved by small groups of Christians in different parts of Europe, Africa and Asia, but the majority of those who called themselves Christians, lived in deep darkness and apostasy. But God raised people like the Waldensians and many reformers who called the Catholic Church to reform and abandon practices which were not in harmony with the Bible. A short review of many of the reformers you can see in the video presentation.

Creeping Compromise by Joe Crews pdf book

Creeping Compromise is one of the few books written by Joe Crews about the spiritual dangers we face in our times. Joe Crews (1924-1994) was the founder of Amazing Facts ministry. Most of his efforts were focused on helping people to know Jesus and understand the Bible. This book is different and it’s addressed to those who want to perfect their walk with God. There are many ethical topics discussed in the book. Sadly, you can’t hear similar messages today from the pulpits of most of the churches. May it be a blessing for all those confused or disappointed of what’s happening among those who claim to follow Jesus.

Small Group Free Bible Study Nottingham, Mansfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield

Small Group Free Bible Study Nottingham, Mansfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield

Small Group Free Bible Study Nottingham, Mansfield and Sutton-in-Ashfield (Nottinghamshire, UK) are organized in rented spaces (other than churches) or private homes. Many people don’t feel comfortable to go in a church, even if they are born in a Christian family. Some others come from very different backgrounds, non-Christian ones and they would like to know more about the Bible and its teachings without feeling overwhelmed by the presence of many Christians around them. A small group Bible study in a place different than a Church can be a very good environment to ask your own questions, no matter their nature. Most of the times Christian churches don’t provide a proper space and time for open discussion, debate, and questions to be asked. A sermon can rarely respond to the many unspoken question of all those present in the church.

For those who would like to study the Bible but they can’t organize their time to participate physically, you can just send us an email and we can send you some free Bible studies and books to help you understand better the Bible. Another option, if you have a good internet connection and you feel comfortable about this, we can do an online Bible study, via Skype or other programs.
