CHINESE BIBLE STUDY

The Chinese Bible Study meets in the daycare gym from 1:30pm to 3:00pm on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. It is primarily conducted in Cantonese. Everyone interested is welcome!

A Scripture passage is studied in a session. Chinese Bible study usually begins with small group discussion. Then in a large group, they examine the context of the passage, do an in-depth verse-by-verse study, and reflect on what the scripture means to them and how it impacts their lives. By the grace of God and the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, they hope to learn together with openness, see God’s presence in their lives and be spiritual companions in their walk with God.

Here are some responses from the group members:

“The Bible study is not one-way instruction. Rather, we question, listen to each other’s perspectives and discover what the scripture truly means to us.”

“I am grateful to God. Many times, I came to the Bible study bothered by some issues in life. Amazingly, God’s Words spoke to me exactly what I needed to hear. When I left, my heart was consoled, and my faith was strengthened.”

“We do not simply do an academic study on a Bible passage, we learn how the Bible is so real to our everyday life.”

“I really enjoy the small group time. We study hard, share freely and have fun with each other. I once laughed so hard that I had to wipe away tears.”

Interested to join them? They sincerely invite you to come to their meetings!


中文主日研經班每月逢第二及第四主日下午一時半至三時在地庫 daycare gym 聚會,主要語言為粵語,歡迎有興趣的弟兄弟姊妹和朋友參加。

研經班每次研讀一段經文,先分小組討論查經問題,再合組分享答案,查考經文背景,逐節解讀,進深理解含義,着重探討經文對個人生活的影響和應用。祈盼在上帝的恩典裏及聖靈的光照中,弟兄姊妹結伴同行,坦誠切磋,領悟真理,體會上帝的同在。

請聽聽我們的一些心聲:

「研經班不是單向的教導,而是透過發問和討論,從不同的觀點,探討經文的意義。」

「感謝主!多次帶着困擾着我的事情來到研經班,很奇妙地,上帝的話總適切的解決了我的需要,離開時,我的心得到了安慰,信心也堅固了。」

「主日研經不只是學術性的認知,最重要的是領悟到聖經與生活的結合。」

「小組討論時,我們努力切磋,自由分享,開心談笑。有一次我笑得眼淚也掉了下來!」

有與趣和我們一起學習上帝的話嗎?誠摯地邀請你來參加!


GRACE FELLOWSHIP

Grace Fellowship is geared towards Chinese speaking (Primarily Cantonese, some Mandarin) brothers and sisters of St. John's. We always welcome guests and new members.

We meet every second Saturday of the month at 6PM in the Parish Hall, beginning the evening of fellowship with a potluck dinner. This is followed by sing-along songs to praise God before we engage in discussion focusing on a wide variety of topics. Our topical discussions range from bible studies to topics like traveling, missionary trips, the need for recycling, and health. Sometimes, we schedule special topic talks given by guest speakers, or we play video presentations (In such cases, the talk or video may be conducted in English only). Once a year, we plan a fun social outing, enhancing the purpose of group bonding as we grow stronger in the Christian faith. Members also take pleasure in occasional religious movie nights, followed by a group discussion. 

From time to time, Rev. Canon Simon Li enjoys leading Grace Fellowship in biblical and spiritual topics, and even enjoys being on the occasional hot-seat for an evening of spontaneous questions.

If you would like to find out more about our fellowship, or are interested in our topical discussions, you are welcome to join us. Please inform us through the “Contact Us“ page. We look forward to meeting newcomers!
