Church can evoke different feelings for different people. For some, church is boring, stifling and full of awkward people. For others, church is wonderful and they can't wait to spend time with their church family.

Whatever we feel about church, it's important that our behaviour and attitudes are shaped by the way God feels about church.

Leader's notes are included.

About Pathway Bible Guides

Church Matters is part of this new series of Pathway Bible Guides. They aim to provide simple, straightforward Bible study material for:

  • Christians who are new to studying the Bible (perhaps because they've been recently converted or because they have joined a Bible study group for the first time);
  • Christians with lower literacy levels who find other studies (such as the Good Book Guides or Interactive Bible Studies) too much of a stretch.

Accordingly, the studies are designed to be short, straightforward and easy to use, with an uncomplicated vocabulary. At the same time, the writers have tried to do justice to the passages being studied and to model good Bible-reading principles. They have tried to be simple without being simplistic; no-nonsense without being no-content.

The questions and answers assume a small group context but can easily be adapted to suit different situations, such as individual study and one to one.

Customer reviews

“Good usable Bible study”

Great Bible Study material and especially liked the extra background information at the back for leaders. Actually used it for Bible Study and as basis for sermon series on the topic of Church. All round an excellent purchase.


“A good study, meeting our needs”

This is good for group study. The length is about right for an hour (a big bonus), and it is sound. Best of all, it doesn't try to follow any of the side-alleys present in 1 Cor, but presents the main thrust of the letter, and follows the context of the apostle's argument all the way through. And thus it ignores some of the more peripheral issues that one would like to persue sometimes - but that is fair enough.

Its main weakness is that there is sometimes not enough application in it. Supplementary questions are essential - but on the other hand, this helps you mould it to your group.

Also, the leader's notes at the end could be more helpful in giving a hint at what certain questions are driving at.

Overall a good study.


“very good”

Having worked through the studies on 'Church matters' I was very pleased with the content of the studies. The material seems to me to be very biblically sound, as matthias media material usually is.
