Mark's Gospel Audio Recording
Church by the Bay have put together an audio recording of Mark’s gospel.
Mark’s gospel answers two important questions:
Chapters 1-8 Who is Jesus?
Chapters 9-16 Why did Jesus come?
But Mark is not just writing history: all the way through Mark is answering a third question:
What does it mean for us?
Think about these questions as you listen...
Please be aware this is an amateur production. We use the World English Bible (WEB) - whereas normally at Church by the Bay we use the New International Version. We chose the WEB because it is copyright free and can be legally copied and distributed.
This recording is available on CD. If you live in Morecambe we’ll make and deliver you a copy for free. If you live further afield, we ask that you give us cost price (which including postage and packaging is £1.20 per copy).
Handle with Care
The Bible is clear. The trouble is, we are not clear. And that means we need to handle the Bible with care.
The Apostle Paul, one of the first Christians wrote to his co-worker Timothy:
"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15 ESV)
So it is very possible to handle the Bible wrongly! And as Christians, we want to learn more and more how to handle the Bible rightly. And as we know God's Word better, so we know God Himself better.
For two Wednesdays, we're going to meet at Galloway's (see map below) to think more about how to read and handle the Bible with care! All welcome!
Wednesday 24th April 8pm
Wednesday 1st May 8pm
These meetings are repeated for the Mums' Group at the Strakers':
Friday 26th April 10.30am

Genesis 4-11 The Descent of Man
Over summer at Church by the Bay we're going to carry on hearing God speak to us from the book of Genesis. These ancient chapters help us to understand our world today and the mess we're in, and why we desperately need God's promises.
5th May Genesis 4 Murder and Vengeance
12th May Genesis 5:1-6:8 Death and Evil
19th May Genesis 6:9-8:19 Judgement yet Hope
2nd June Genesis 8:20-9:29 Promise yet Dishonour
9th June Genesis 10:1-11:26 Sin and Self-glorification
The talks will, as usual, be put online on the Sunday afternoon.

What is Church by the Bay all about?
The good news from 1 Corinthians 15
In our recent 1 Corinthians series, we saw Paul's helpful summary of the good news about Jesus Christ in 1 Corinthians 15. We thought it would be useful to try and remember the 4 points he makes to help us explain the good news to people. So we've produced a postcard with a gospel outline based on 1 Corinthians 15:3-8. Some of the text in the image below is tiny - you might like to download it to read or to print and use.
