We sincerely welcome everyone who is searching for truth from God and meaning in life. We are a church that enjoys taking God and His Word seriously, a church that strives to be loving and encouraging. We have found the Bible, God's timeless and relevant Word, not only helpful but essential in getting to know Him. May you discover the reality of the living God, and the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Month of Prayer
As we enter 2017 I promised we'd start the year with a month of prayer for Buckingham Evangelical Church.
I'm going to send out an email each day with a prayer. I have unashamedly taken the content of these prayers from Mike Leake's 31-day challenge (http://www.31dayprayerchallenge.com/) as I have found them so very helpful myself. Each email will drop into your inbox in the morning so you can pray along with everyone else at church for the church at a time convenient to you.
Each week I'll also be releasing a prayer sheet that we'll use to focus our prayer meetings each Sunday evening. These will each be held from 6 - 7pm in the Bourton Centre at school. We'll just get straight down to pray, so please try to be on time! In order to get these emails generated I've created a new email group that you need to be subscribed to in order to receive the emails. If you're not subscribed but would like to, please visit http://www.buckingham-church.org.uk/news-by-email.html
I really hope you'll take an active part, pray along with each other and make the most of praying together on Sunday evenings. My own prayer for us as a church is that as we come together to pray together our heavenly father would draw us closer into relationship with him and in turn with each other.
In his wonderful name,

Why should I read the Bible?
It's become traditional for people to begin each new year by resolving to do things differently. Whether it's to stop smoking, to lose weight, to get fit or something else, every resolution is made with a goal in mind.
With this in mind, it's good for the Christian to make resolutions too. Lets face it, not one of us is sinless: that's why we followed Christ in the first place. While we are no longer mastered by sin we are still prone to getting ourselves tangled up in it. Knowing God's word - the Bible - can help us avoid getting into sin in the first place. But if you're already in a mess it can also help you get untangled.
In his sermon entitled, Breaking Free from Sin, John McArthur challenges us that knowing and memorising scripture is vital in the fight against sin in our lives.
