‘At Home’ Zoom group - The Church is Born

Introduction

Over recent weeks the ‘At Home’ group has looked at the lives of Jesus’ twelve disciples. The question we were left with was: what happened next? What were the origins the Church? How did it grow and spread so dramatically?

So we are going to breeze through the early chapters of the book of Acts to find out. Written by Luke, author of the third Gospel, Acts chronicles the founding of the church and its spread across the ancient Mediterranean world. The early chapters cover the beginnings which largely happen in and around Israel and its these that we shall consider.
