Welcome

Thanks for dropping by!

We’d love to meet you and welcome you into our community.

Sojourn is committed to teaching straight from the Bible every Sunday. We’re eager to take what God says there into the everyday ordinary. Wherever we look in the Bible, we encounter God who is perfect and awesome, welcoming and forgiving. We meet him in Jesus.

We want to be a community who believe, trust and obey the God who speaks… and welcome those who are just checking things out.

Come as you are.

About Sojourn

Sojourn Bible Church is a group of men, women and children in whom the Spirit of God is at work as the Bible is read and preached. His work is obvious as they express their confidence of forgiveness in the Lord Jesus and in love lay their lives down in service to one another. Our prayer is that he will continue to keep and mature us and that he would bring many to know God in Christ.

We are very aware that there is more to life. We live now, we put roots down, we enjoy relationships with one another and around the city… Yet we know we will ‘move on’. We have a lasting home in heaven. One day we will go home. The word sojourn in our name echoes that awareness. (It means to dwell temporarily.)

We are Bible people. We know and love and trust and proclaim the Lord Jesus who we meet in the Scriptures.

You’re welcome any time. Come as you are.

 

legit bible teaching

Our regular pattern of teaching is expository. We look at sequential sections of a Bible book, seeking to learn what God is teaching us through His word.

The outlines and recordings of our Bible talks are posted as they become available. The most recent Bible talks are here. We routinely use the English Standard Version of the Bible. It’s a reliable translation of God’s word to us. You can read it here.

Discipleship Groups

It’s all too easy to be educated beyond our confidence and obedience. Our discipleship groups are a wonderful context for Christian men and women to encourage one another in the gospel of the Lord Jesus.

We meet with two or three others (same sex) to hear God speak his Bible, share the particular focus of our response and mention by name a friend who we’d love to get to talk Jesus to. The small size of these groups allows everyone to participate and means that a lot can be packed into 45 minutes or so. It also helps us keep praying in an informed way for one another and for those who God has brought into our lives.

These groups are always open to new people joining. They might start as just two and expand to five and then into two new groups. The elders are keen for all of us to be giving and receiving gospel encouragement in life and mission in the context of these gospel friendships.
