Rev. Richard Atkinson: October 2019
The Bible has been described as "the world's least-read bestseller", an indicator of how complicated a book it is to read, to understand at times. So, a Bible Study course with a difference, designed to help us gain a greater understanding of how to handle our sacred text. Ideal for those who feel they should be reading the Bible but it is all too confusing, as well as those looking to enhance their awareness. No knowledge assumed, all questions welcome!
I hope to be able to run a daytime and an evening session. The first evening group will be on Wednesday October 30th at 7.30pm in the Welcome Space, while the afternoon one will meet on the 16th Oct at 2pm in the Welcome Space. The times are not set in stone, so if you would like to be involved and these times do not work, please talk to me.

We are called to listen to those on the margins, seek good news for the poor, and stand up for those who are vulnerable — whether that is families who are struggling today, or future...
