Each session is independent, so please come along, even if you missed last week's
The Bible Course is a fantastic introduction to the BIG picture of the Bible. Through eight sessions of DVD teaching and small group discussion the course follows the storyline of the Bible from cover to cover, helping participants to gain insights and to engage with God’s Word in a deeper way – whatever their starting point!
If you have questions about how the message of the Bible all fits together, or if you’re not sure about how to interpret it and apply it to life, or if you simply enjoy being with others and learning in a friendly and informal setting then The Bible Course is for you!
We are running the sessions twice weekly at the following times:
Tuesdays at 10am in the worship area (auditorium) on: 27, March 6, 13, 20, 27
Wednesdays at 7.30pm in the Lower Lounge on: Feb 28, March 7, 14, 21, 28
Simply pick the session each week that best suits you! (Please note: there will be no sessions in the week commencing Feb 12). For further information please contact Chris Shaw. We really hope you will be able to join us!
