Firelight meets at 6.30pm, Thursdays, Mandys house. A great small group that’s a mix of university students and young working people, it meets near Harborne. They meet up for dinner together each week before jumping into discussion and sharing.
A Testimony from a Firelight Member
Last fall when I moved here to start university I had no idea how much spiritual support I would be able to find. Since I had met some Firelight people during a visit to BCEC, I decided to try Firelight. The first time I went I completely lost my way trying to find the house. I gave up and begin trying to figure how to get back to my dorm, but they called to see where I was and insisted on picking me up from where I was. What I noticed immediately about Firelight was how laid back and relaxed it is.
It’s a lot more like a gathering of friends than a formal Bible study (although we do that as well!). We eat dinner first and then usually chat and play games for a bit before studying a chapter of the Bible. Because most of us have some background and experience in Christian living, the Bible studies are more expository (analyzed verse by verse) and discussion-based rather than taught by one person. We end with a few worship songs and prayer for each other. What I’ve appreciated most about Firelight are the friendships and the prayer support we give each other.
