'WORD.online!' - Saturday 5th December 2020 - Hebrews with Paul Mayo...




WORD. online!

During our first 'WORD. online!' events, over six thousand have joined us for inspiring Bible studies with excellent Bible teachers.

These are free events and you are warmly invited!

For our next 'WORD. online!' event on Saturday December 5th, Paul Mayo will be opening Hebrews to speak about the 'Grandeur & Grace' of Jesus Christ.


Hebrews: the grandeur and grace of Christ

The book of Hebrews shows us the grandeur and grace of Christ - and how that shapes our lives. Written to a people whose passion for Christ and his Word was starting to fade; it points us to Jesus as our perfect prophet, priest and king: the one who we can never ignore and can always come to with confidence. 

The author wants to give us strength to endure hard times with joy in our heart, a longing for our eternal home and a delight in the Old Testament revelation of the glory of Christ.
"Paul Mayo is part of the leadership team of Oak Hall Expeditions and wholeheartedly involved with his local church. He has been leading people in exploring Hebrews since 2005 and continues to be thrilled by the new things he finds in it. Paul teaches on the Oak Hall Year, dreams of doing a PhD in theology, but most of all loves reading and talking about Jesus with his four children."

A fruitful morning together!

Our programme runs between 9:30am and 12:30pm. We will enjoy three teaching sessions together, opportunities for prayer and reflection in smaller groups, and a short tea break in the middle!
"Just wanted to thank you so much for arranging such a great event on Saturday... the speaker was engaging and had challenging messages, with helpful illustrations. I will definitely put the next one in my diary. "

November 2020 - WORD. online! #07 - 'Revolutionary Living' - Matthew 5-7 with Andrew Sach

What a helpful morning... watch again here! 

Andrew Sach's notes are online just here.

October 2020 - WORD. online! #06 - Psalm 23 with Andy Jack

Psalm 23 speaks to our situation so poignantly... here Andy Jack takes us through this ancient poem.

Here are some resources that Andy recommends on the psalms:
  1. 1. Willem A. VanGemeren — “Psalms” in the Expositor’s Bible Commentary (1991) - Quite academic.
  2. Derek Kidner — Psalms 1-72; Psalms 73-150 (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, 1973).
  3. Gerald Wilson — Psalms Volume 1 (NIV Application Commentary, 2002) - More accessible and practical
  4. Donald Williams — Psalms 1-72; Psalms 73-150 (The Preacher’s Commentary, 2002). - Very readable and devotional

On the 9th May, 9:30-12:30 we hosted our first 'WORD. online!' - exploring the book of Acts with Lindsay Brown. 

This video is the first session in a series of three. We'd love it if you could join us live next time!
"Thank you so much for arranging the word online event today. Such great teaching!"

WORD. events - welcome!

At Oak Hall, Otford Manor, our prayer is that all we do will point to the person of Jesus Christ. Central to our events, holidays and expeditions is the Bible teaching that is shared. Through these sessions, some meet Jesus for the first time and respond to His call on their lives, many others grow in their walk with Him. 

Supporting each other to support local churches

Our aim is that all those who join us would return to their home churches to enthusiastically support these frontline communities - reaching out to their friends, family and colleagues with the news of God's love shown in Jesus.

WORD. events

We have been running WORD. events for many years. Usually hosted at Otford Manor, we enjoy a weekend together and explore one book of the Bible with an excellent Bible teacher. 

During these unusual days, we have taken WORD. online!
