Kirkby Gospel Hall is the home to a company of Christians who gather together to remember the Lord Jesus, study the Bible and tell others about God, the Bible and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We try and base everything we do on the authority of the Bible, believing that the essence of the Christian faith is quite simply explained therein.
We have been meeting together from the local area since 1928 in the current building on Portland Street, Kirkby-in-Ashfield.

The Oxford dictionary describes superstition as ‘any belief or behaviour based upon one's trust in luck or other irrational, unscientific, or supernatural forces’. Many of us might laugh derisively at such things, yet wish people ‘the best of luck’ in relation to a game or other competitive event. Having ‘our fingers crossed’ is a commonly stated phrase. Those who play the lottery often have their ‘lucky numbers’. Many practices, some semi-religious and others pagan, appear at this time of year and are referred to as ‘superstitions’.
The word superstition is used once in the King James Bible.[i] The Roman governor that used it, Festus, was talking about the trial of a man called Paul. Festus was the judge in that trial and was struck by the fact that Paul talked of ‘one Jesus who had died, but--so Paul persistently maintained--is now alive’.[ii] Clearly, thought Festus, such a belief is irrational and unscientific. Resurrection of the dead? Superstition!
