Lichfield Christian Church

We are a small gathering of people who are walking down the road of following Jesus together.  We are fellow strugglers and fellow learners on this Spiritual journey. Jesus' example has taught us to love God, love one another, and love our neighbour.  That's what we are trying to do with Jesus' help. We hope you can join us at one of our Connect Groups where you can connect with God as we look into how the Bible relates to our everyday life.  The groups are friendly, relaxed and informative.  Please see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's).

Where to Find Lichfield Christian Church

Instead of the traditional Sunday church service, we gather together in small groups during the week called Connect Groups.  Connect Groups are designed to help you connect with God and others using the guidance of the Holy Scriptures.  We also have a youth group which meets at Darwin Hall on Fridays (map). Please join us for one of our weekly groups.  For more information about when and where these meetings take place please contact us.

How was the Old Testament Made?

If we say that we believe in the Bible then how do we know if it is reasonable to put our faith in it?  Where does the Old Testament (OT) come from?  How was it made?  These are some of the questions that come to mind. 

If we had the original manuscripts and the originals were inspired by God then we would know that what is printed is true.  But we don't have the original scriptures written down by the authors of the books of the OT so is the copy that we have reliable?

by Jeff Fry, Lichfield Christian Churches (as appeared in the Lichfield Mercury)

When dangers and threats come upon us many of us wonder where God is in all of it.  We can feel all alone in the midst of threatening circumstances and it can instil panic and terror.   It can certainly seem in times such as these that God has abandoned us or is fully unaware of our circumstances.  We can't perceive Christ.  We don't see him and our heart doesn't feel his presence.

We recently had a group of four students from the Friary helping us out with the youth group on Friday evenings.  These students were volunteering as a part of their requirements for the Duke of Edinburgh Award.  They were a great help to us with our Friday Night Live youth group which consists of youth year four and above.  The youth took to them like ducks in water and the Friary students had a chance to exercise their skills at public speaking, leading youth games, and leading a small group among other things.

The Friary's Les Miserables - a Powerful Reminder for Christmas

I took in the Friary school's recent musical of Les Mis (Victor Hugo) at the end of November. Thank you Friary school for such a wonderful production. It is probably my favourite musical for its themes of love and redemption. Hugo uses the Bishop at the beginning of the play to immediately couch his themes of love and redemption in the reality of the Christian faith as opposed to just couching them in the vague concept of “love”. Giving flesh to this are the Bishop's actions especially toward Jean Valjean, a recently released prisoner who spent 19 years doing time for his offense of stealing a loaf of bread. My favourite scene is when he is released from prison and he finds himself looking for shelter but is turned away at an inn, a tavern, a local prison and by a young couple when they find out he is a convict. Finally, he comes to the residence of the Bishop. There he is welcomed and told by the Bishop that “this is not my house, it is the house of Christ.” The Bishop also refers to him as “my brother”. Valjean's heart is hard and unresponsive and the law which he has been under for 19 years has failed to change or redeem him in any way.

Youth Group Litter Pick – Your Help is Needed

by Rev Jeff Fry, Lichfield Christian Church
(as appeared in the Lichfield Mercury 6 February 2015)

Some people question the truth of the Bible. They think it is a fable or a book that isn’t true and just the “hysterical believings of a desert tribe” to quote Stephen Fry referring to the Old Testament when he was interviewed by Ann Widdecombe. But did you know that the Bible has been considered the foundation document for the Christian faith ever since Jesus himself repeatedly quoted it during his ministry.
