Book Group

What is Book Group?

Book Group started at Evesham Baptist Church in 2005. A small group of church members has been meeting every two months to discuss one or two books selected by the group at the previous meeting. Many – though not all – books selected are written by Christian authors and many have prompted lively debate.

Can you give some examples of books the Group has read?

God conversations

‘God conversations’
Tania Harris


Seeking Allah, finding Jesus

‘Seeking Allah, finding Jesus’
Nabeel Qureshi


Doing good better

‘Doing Good Better’

Is the Group currently meeting?

The group has not met since lockdown started in March 2020 and is currently in abeyance following the leader’s move away from Evesham later in 2020.  Updates on the group’s status will be posted on this page. Please use the Contact Form below to ask any questions.


Do you have any book suggestions?

‘Bouncing forwards’
Patrick Regan

Being read by Christians around the country through The Big Church Read

The 4th National Big Church Read starts on 8th Sept 2021 with Patrick Regan leading participants through ‘Bouncing Forwards’. In Bouncing Forwards Patrick draws on his own journey of making peace with his on-going anxiety, to look honestly and vulnerably at the temptation to wait for the day when all will be well, whilst missing out on what’s happening in the here and now.

Presented over 10 sessions with accompanying videos and questions for reflection and discussion.


Purpose driven life

‘The purpose driven life’
Rick Warren

Suggested by Derek Markie, one of our Deacons, as a possible source of useful prompts at this stage in the life of Evesham Baptist Church.
