Sermon-based Small Groups

Sermon-based small groups are an excellent way of digging deeper into the weekly sermon and engaging with the Bible and each other.  At Subi Church, resources are provided that coincide with the weekend sermon so that small group leaders can effectively facilitate sermon-based small groups.  The resources differ each week and will generally be available after the services each weekend.

Abiding in Christ

Abiding in Christ Series

On the weekend of June 23/24 2018, we started a new sermon series on “Abiding in Christ” at Subi Church. We will be spending time with Jesus in John 15:1-17 over the next seven weeks during our weekend services. John 15:1-17 is part of a longer section called the Farewell Discourse, starting from John 14 to 17. This is referred to the Farewell Discourse because it is Jesus final extended teaching to his disciples before he was taken to be imprisoned, trialled and crucified (John 13:1). It is a heartfelt message to his disciples, knowing that he would not be with them anymore soon. This is akin to Paul’s final letter to his protégé Timothy – 2 Timothy. These are the last words that Jesus wanted to leave with his disciples.

So, instead of having seven Bible studies in John 15:1-17, we will be having Bible studies on Jesus’ Farewell Discourse from John 14 – 17. It’ll be a great feast of spiritual food as we meditate upon Jesus’ final words.

The following table is the planned studies: (You can click on the passages to download the studies as they become available)
