The Toolbox Training
Autumn 2021
Hello everyone and welcome to the Toolbox options for Autumn 2021
We are all encouraged in the Bible to grow in our faith. Becoming a Christian is the most amazing thing that can happen, but it is the start of the journey. When we commit our lives to God and become Christian, we are not the finished product, we continue to grow in our faith throughout our lives.
The reason we have called this new initiative ‘Toolbox’ is because we all need different things (tools) at different times depending on our circumstances to help us grow in our faith. Factors that may impact what we need in our lives might include: what we know already; what we are facing right now; how long we have been a Christian. The GBC Toolbox is an opportunity for us to learn, reflect and grow in areas which are most relevant to our faith journey at the moment. Each term we will offer a number of different options for you to choose from. For some people being part of a weekly Care and Connect group is the way that they will continue to grow, and these new Toolbox options are not in competition with that.
This term we have a few initial options for you to engage with. In the spring and summer terms next year we will have a larger selection to choose from.
All events can be booked by either emailing
office@godmanchesterbaptist.org or by phoning the office 01480 458565 and leaving a message.
If you have any questions or suggestions for next term, then please let me know.
God bless


Bible Study
Monday 2.30pm-4.00pm
(starting 11 October)

Small Hall, GBC
Led by Philip Thompson
An opportunity each week for further bible study linked to the Sunday AM celebration sermon. When we hear someone preach, it can lead to further questions and reflections that can’t be addressed at the time.  This bible study will be a chance to explore the passage in more depth and consider how it affects our day to day lives.
‘Being Human’ Podcast
Thursday 8.00pm-9.00pm
4 November – 16 December
Zoom (Email Office for link)
Listen to the podcast before we meet to discuss the issues raised

Hosted by Daniel Beckett
The Being Human podcast produced by the Evangelical Alliance is part of their initiative to inspire and equip everyday Christians to understand, articulate and participate in the biblical vision of humanity.
What it is to be human is arguably the most profound, but also most contested question in our culture today.

“Amidst a global pandemic, black lives matter, contentious elections, and accelerating climate change, there is a constant cacophony of voices telling us who we are, what’s true, what’s real, what’s wrong, what will make you happy, and how to get it. Voices telling stories, both big and small, that shape how we live”.

This is an opportunity to begin to grapple with large concepts that are very real in our world today.

How Covid has impacted us
Wednesday 7.30pm-9.00pm
20 October, 10 November, 24 November
Small Hall, GBC
Hosted by Anne Ambler
These three sessions will look at the external and internal effects that Covid and lockdown have had on our lives. Each session will use the same material and look at the effects on each group and how we can care for people from those groups.
20 October - Volunteers working in children/youth ministry
10 November - Parents, grandparents and carers
24 November - Everyone

Book Club
Friday 11.00am-12.00pm
(Read the chapter before coming to the discussion)

5 November – 10 December
Small Hall, GBC
Max Lucado’s new book “You Are Never Alone” will show you that you’re stronger than you think because God is nearer than you know. You'll be comforted by the living, loving, miracle-working God who doesn’t think twice about stepping into the thorny thickets of your world to lift you out.
  • A book for anyone feeling alone or left out
  • Max Lucado shows through the Gospel of John that God is always near
  • You'll discover a sense of closeness and recognition in God's presence
Depending on interest and demand we may run this at another time during the week so please register interest even if you can’t do a Friday morning.
Prayer Meeting
1st Sunday of the month
3 October, 7 November, 5 December
Zoom (Email Office for link)
Hosted by Daniel Beckett
Our monthly prayer meeting will be a great opportunity to hear about some of the key things coming up in the next month across the GBC family and to pray for them and each other.
Reflection Room
Available all week
Ring the Office to check availability

Room 5, GBC
We have a fantastic space at GBC for reflection and prayer. Each month there is a different theme that you can use to focus your prayers. Or you can use the space to be intentional about praying. The room is available most of the week and can be opened in the evening.
If you would like to commit to prayer each week, why not book the room and come along and commit to praying. You could do this on your own or with a few others.
