Norwich men’s bible group Caleb launched

A new bible study and discussion group for men is launching on Saturday April 16 in Norwich. The ‘Caleb’ group aims to encourage men to grow their faith and will feature interesting speakers and topics.

Caleb is a group of men from different churches in and around Norwich who have a desire to live wholeheartedly for God in their everyday lives. The monthly meetings on the third Saturday of each month will provide men with a place to meet, worship, study God’s Word and grow.

One of the organisers David Adams said, “Caleb has come about following informal discussions between a group of men from several different church backgrounds expressing the need for a regular men's group to study and discuss Christian issues particularly from a male perspective and to encourage friendship between those attending.”

“Whether a new believer or many years in the Christian life the hope is that it will encourage men to face the challenges of life as Caleb did and be more effective in their homes??, workplace and communities. These challenges are great but together and with God's help we are trusting Him for encouraging outcomes!"

The meetings are held on the third Saturday each month at Witard Road Baptist Church and are informal. The meeting starts at 8:30am with a drink, followed by a short time of worship and some teaching around a topic. After a short break there will be some discussion about the topic and how it can be applied to our everyday lives. The meeting will finish by 11am.

The speaker at the first event, on Saturday April 16 at 8:30am at Witard Road Baptist Church will be missionary Mun Heng who, along with his wife Cecilia, heads up a vibrant evangelism and church planting program among people groups in remote regions of the Indian-subcontinent who have never before heard about Jesus.

Mun Heng was trained as an engineering geologist and worked as a consultant for 13 years before God called him to full-time cross-cultural ministry. He left his practice to become a career missionary among the tribal Ibans in Sarawak, East Malaysia for 10 years with particular focus on leadership development, evangelism and church planting.
