READING THE BIBLE
The Bible. God's Word. The Holy Scriptures. The Word of the Lord. The Bible has been, for a very long time, the most popular book in the world and the most important book for Christians. Yet, having been composed thousands of years ago in different ancient cultures and languages, it can feel very strange and distant. Join us in the Church Centre when possible (2.5 G required) or online for a new educational series on reading the Bible. We'll be gathering about one Saturday morning per month to discuss the tools for reading the Bible well, informed by both the academy and Anglican tradition. Each session begins at 10am and will be approximately 60-90 minutes in length.
