Biblical teaching that relates to everyday lives' was one of the requests that came out of the 2015 Healthy Churches questionnaire and follow-up sessions. So Helen Kirk is leading a monthly Bible Study on a Wednesday afternoon/ Thursday evening in the coffee bar at the front of the church. It will begin with refreshments followed by some input from Helen and then a chance to discuss the issues raised.
So if you are looking for some challenging discussion, help to understand the nitty-gritty of the Bible or just want the opportunity to ask all the questions you've never dared ask, please come along. You don't have to commit to all the sessions; just come to what you can. All are welcome.
'How to survive a local church' and 'Being a Christian even when life sucks' are two topics for Helen Kirk's Bible Study programme this year (2016-17).
