Questions about God?

Come and Explore some of the bigger questions about the Christian Faith at Café Church. A relaxed time with refreshments, a talk from the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and an opportunity to ask questions.

Reasons for God - by Andy Moore
8th April | 6.30 pm - 7.45 pm
We live in a world where our every claim requires an explanation, but is faith really blind? Has Science disproven God's existence or are there credible reasons for our belief in a God?

Has science disproved God? - by Sharon Dirckx
15th April | 6.30 pm - 7.45 pm
Does faith have a place in the laboratory? This talk will examine the relationship between Science and God by asking these questions and others: Historically, what has been the relationship between Science & God? How is it that Science is even possible? Does Science have limits? Where do the most persuasive answers lie to the big questions of life?

Where is God in suffering? - by Gareth Black
22nd April | 6.30 pm - 7.45 pm
How can God exist when there is such evil and suffering in our world? And if God does exist, why wouldn't He care enough to intervene and stop our suffering? This talk will explore why there are good reasons for trusting God with our experiences of suffering and evil.


Handling Conflicts in Marriage

An interactive seminar | Wednesday 18th April | 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

Whether you’re single, married, about to get hitched or not, please come along as Susannah Padiachy helps us to think biblically about the thorny subject of conflict in marriage and how it can highlight our daily need of the gospel. We will consider practical ways to become better equipped to understand and deal with anger we experience and express in marriage – be it within own marriage dynamic, for those we know trapped by cycles of anger within their marriages, or those who are living with an angry spouse. All very welcome.
