Hear the Message of Jesus that Changes Lives
Open House is your invitation to hear a clear and simple presentation of Jesus; ‘A Living Hope in the Midst of a Dying World.’
What is your hope based on? At Open House on the 14th October, Alanzo Paul will look at secular vs Christian hope and examine the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus which is the bedrock of the Christian faith.
Alanzo Julian Paul was born and raised in Canada. His young world was turned upside down when his parents divorced, and his subsequent turbulent teenage years led to an ever-increasing dependency on drugs and alcohol. At age 20 Alanzo's sister persuaded him to come to a church service. It was here that he heard the transforming message of the gospel, and several services later he invited Jesus to be Lord of his life.
Alanzo went on to work for an oil and gas company for several years before entering the e-commerce sector. His first private venture as an entrepreneur, together with his wife, was to launch a global men's grooming brand which continues to be very successful in the UK, Europe, USA and Canada. Alanzo has years of mentoring young people and has spoken in prison, churches, universities, schools and youth groups. Since September 2016, he has been studying Theology at the University of Oxford.
What can you expect at Open House?
A warm welcome is always waiting for you at BTC. Our friendly church family is made up of people from many nations, all ages and different backgrounds. On Sunday mornings we worship God together by singing songs of praise and we listen to teaching from the Bible.
Babies, children and young people all have their own bible-based activity sessions in other parts of the building while the main service is going on. (Parents are required to register their children beforehand, and all BTC Kids & Youth team helpers are DBS checked).
At Open House the gospel of Jesus and the message of salvation and hope are clearly presented in the teaching. There is also opportunity for anyone to receive prayer at the end of the service. We hope you will join us and find the answers you are looking for.
