Learning to teach the Bible
Spurgeon's is our group at Magdalen Road Church to help people both understand and teach the bible better. Whether you are an experienced bible teacher who’s been working at this for years, or brand new and wanting to think through basic principles and practices you would be very welcome to come. We meet once a month on a Sunday before our morning service to study the bible, think about how to teach it and eat breakfast together! The Spurgeon's group also has opportunities to send speakers to different churches around our region.
If you would be interested in getting involved please get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org
. Alternatively just come along to one of the next meetings:
Just for preachers?
Most of the members of the Spurgeon's group are preachers but the skills that we learn are applicable in many situations. If you never intend to preach but just want to handle scripture better then you will be very welcome.
For novices and seasoned veterans
The Spurgeon's group functions as a fellowship of bible teachers in which we help one another. It is therefore a group for those with many years of experience or none. Come along to contribute as well as learn.
The Spurgeon's preaching group is actively seeking opportunities to preach in other churches. If your church is looking for preachers - preferably to preach a short series - and if you would like to give an opportunity to people learning the skills then please do get in touch with email@example.com.
Testimony from a receiving church:
“The elders would like to express our thanks to you for the speakers from Magdalen Road Church, Oxford. Each one has been much appreciated by those attending the services. Throughout the series I had people approaching me and saying how much they enjoyed what the preacher said that morning. This does not happen that often! You are fortunate to have so much gift in your church, and you and your pastor are to be commended for the effort you put in to develop their gift."
