THE BIBLE COURSE (Exploring the BIG story)
Having completed the ALPHA course, the Tuesday morning group continues to meet on the second Tuesday of the month commencing on 9 May in the Memorial Chapel 11.45 am-1.15 pm.
We are going to explore the eight-session Bible Course.
The sessions are: Introducing the Bible, Creation and Covenant, Exodus and the Promised Land, Judges and Kings, Exile and Prophets, Jesus and the Gospels, Acts and the Church and Revelation and Review.
The course is intended to help us understand the Bible for ourselves. Over the eight sessions, we will see the big picture of the Bible storyline – from Genesis to Revelation. Along the way, we will pick up tools and skills to help us read it for ourselves. Each session is interactive, with sections of teaching, discussion time, and personal reflection, and will last approximately 90 minutes.
By the end of the course, we will have the confidence to pick up the Bible, read it for ourselves, and apply it to our lives.
You will need a copy of the course book, your bible, and a notebook.

The Alpha Course: Do you have questions about God? Jesus? Why are we here? How are we made? What is the purpose of life? The Alpha Course allows you to explore these questions and find answers with others in a safe environment. The Course starts in the week of 9th January 2023. There will be morning, evening and online sessions. To find out more or express your interest, please email email@example.com or Tel 01932231274
Reading the Bible One-to-One: Have you thought about reading the Bible but wondered where to start? It’s a big book! But reading it is easier than you’d think. A great way to get started – and indeed continue – is to read one-to-one with someone. Go at your own pace, in bite-sized bits, when it suits you. The Word 121 is explicitly designed to help people do this, starting with John’s gospel. There’s no homework, no commitment – just John’s gospel one verse at a time. It’s split into short episodes, with skeleton talking points to chat through if you want. Episodes can be half an hour or as long as an hour if you prefer. People who’ve tried reading the Bible this way find it relaxing, enjoyable, and helpful. For many, it’s the highlight of their week. If you’d like to try it or learn more, please talk to Brian Brown (or email Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org). What better time to start than in the new year?!
