13. Bible Schools and Various Gatherings

One positive aspect of ecclesial life that has developed in recent years is the “Bible School” movement. These are generally gatherings of one week, providing very good Bible study classes (for all ages), recreation of a wholesome character, and pleasant associations. There are annually, in the summer, almost 20 Bible schools throughout North America, and other similar schools in England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Caribbean, and elsewhere. They provide wonderful opportunities for fellowship on a wider scale than is possible in local ecclesias, and for further exposure to the Truth for the families of Christadelphians. One of the greatest benefits to the young of attendance at such schools is the possibility of making lasting friendships with other young Christadelphians, that may one day develop into courtship and marriage “in the Lord”.

To a lesser degree, various weekend gatherings and youth gatherings provide all the above advantages as well, and should be attended whenever possible. Information regarding Bible schools and weekend gatherings is available from local ecclesias.
