Why Jesus? // Dinner Series

Thursdays | 7pm – 9pm | July 29 – August 26

Two thousand years after Jesus was crucified, millions of people all over the world still choose to follow him. Why do people still find Jesus compelling in our secular age? Why Jesus? is a five week dinner series that seeks to answer that question. The topics covered are:

  • July 29: Why Jesus, if life is fun without him?
  • Aug 5: Can I really trust the bible?
  • Aug 12: I just want to be myself; where does Jesus fit in?
  • Aug 19: Can’t I be “good without God”? Why do I need Jesus?
  • Aug 26: What would it look like to follow Jesus today?

Each week, over a meal, you’ll hear a short talk about Jesus and the difference he makes, and have plenty of opportunity to discuss and ask questions about what you’ve heard.

Why Jesus? will be held at Islington Baptist Church (180 Maitland Rd, Islington NSW). However, because of COVID restrictions, attendance at the main venue will be limited. Please use the registration form on our website to reserve a spot.

We’ll also live stream from the main venue at Islington Baptist to a number of house watch parties in various homes around Newcastle. If you would prefer to gather with one of those groups please contact us via out email info@newcastlechristianstudents.org so we can give you more information.
