There’s something breathtakingly beautiful

that happens when God gets hold of our hearts and minds and invites us on a journey of discovery. The big questions of “who we are” and “why we’re here” are no longer hopeless wanderings; instead, these questions are replaced with a deep knowing that God is alive and speaks with love, mercy and grace.

I came to CBS after drifting for several years away from God. I saw an advert and telephoned the number. My parents had divorced and left me feeling angry and confused. I found the class easily from the directions given, once there I found the directions back to God easy as well! ~ UK

It’s been our experience

that as we grow to know God and love God, the most beautiful stories emerge: stories of healing and friendship, of restoration, of growth and perseverance, of joy in the face of adversity, of triumph.

We have seen people flourishing, developing and gaining confidence in their Christian life. ~ UK

“New Life”

is how we describe this real experience of getting to know God in a deeper way.

A few weeks ago a fairly new member was heard to say over coffee after the meeting “I don’t know Jesus the way the speaker has been saying”. A sister sitting next to her said “Do you want to?”. “Oh yes” was the instant reply. Immediate prayer amongst the chatter of the room, Jesus came into a life in an extraordinary way. She now shares our study in a life changing way, contributing a fresh dimension of spirituality benefiting the whole group ~ UK

My name is Anika. Earlier in my life, I was a local rowdy (gangster). I did many illegal works in our area. Due to these kinds of activities I was arrested by police and imprisoned in jail. After my release from the prison, I went to a CBS group in my neighbour’s house. There, they taught me the Word of God; I was touched by the Word of God, and I surrendered my life to Jesus. Now I have been baptised and regularly go to church. ~ Anika, India
