Rooted in Christ meets in small groups throughout the week to read and discuss Christian books. We believe that reading the Bible alongside good Christian books is a sure way to grow as a disciple of Christ. During term time we meet each week over tea and coffee or a meal to catch up, discuss a chapter of a book, and pray together.
This coming term we will be reading ‘The Discipline of Grace’ by Jerry Bridges
We will be starting the book groups in October.
“You are never beyond the reach of God’s grace. Neither are you ever beyond the need of God’s grace.
Without grace we’d never come to Christ. But being a Christian is more than just coming to Christ, it’s about growing and becoming more like Jesus. This pursuit of holiness is hard work, and as we enter into this discipline, we sometimes lose sight of grace. Jerry Bridges helps us steer clear of this disastrous distraction, offering a clear and thorough explanation of the gospel and what it means to the believer.
Explore how the same grace that brings us to Christ also grows us in Christ.”
What Students Say:
“Looking back over my time at University I can say with certainty that meeting with other Christians for Book Groups was vital in encouraging me to live for Christ and deepening my faith in Him.”
