During the week (Tuesday and Wednesday evenings) we have a number of small groups that meet in homes around Hadleigh and the surrounding area. Although we are unable to meet face to face at the moment our groups are still connecting remotely by using various forms of video conferencing. We are currently looking at a series on contentment.

If you would like to be part of these small groups, please speak to either Pastor Greg or Pastor Chris and you will be assigned to an appropriate group as soon as possible.

Contentment

In this series through this unprecedented time we will seek to understand why we become discontented and how Jesus Christ alone can bring the treasure of contentment to our daily lives.

Our studies will include:

  1. Our hungry hearts from the book of Ecclesiastes
  2. The only food that satisfies from John 6 v 25-42, 60-69
  3. To be content with what we have from 1 Timothy 6 v 3-19
  4. To be content with where we are from 1 Corinthians 7 v 1-24
  5. To be content when life is hard from 2 Corinthians 1 and 4
  6. The “secret” of true happiness from Luke 6 v 12-26

We all know what it is to feel discontented with our lives — with what we have, how much we can get, what we do, who we live with, how we are and what the future promises.
The constant hunger for something more may seem like the aches and pains of growing old — something that we must just put up with in this far-from-perfect world. But the Bible shows that discontent is the symptom of a lethal disease that will kill us if we do not find a cure. It was discontent that first led humans into rebellion against God, with the catastrophic consequences that have followed from that decision.
Yet Jesus Christ promises that anyone who believes in Him will never again hunger or thirst. The apostle Paul was able to say that he had learned the secret of being content in any and every situation — in need or in plenty. Discontent is a problem of our hearts not our circumstances. This Good Book Guide can help us to understand why we become discontented, how Jesus Christ alone can help us, and on a practical level, how Christian living can bring the treasure of contentment to our daily lives.
