This year's Summer Bible Study will look into the Letter to the Hebrews. Verses from this piece of writing feature prominently during the Church Year, particularly at Christmas and Easter. Written for second-generation Christians who were eagerly awaiting the Coming of God's Kingdom, the text urges them to stay on track and follow Christ's example and to be faithful in their relationship with God. This very carefully and elegantly crafted piece of writing is a reflection on Christ, through whom God has spoken and continues to speak.
There will be two groups running:
Wednesday mornings at the Rectory: 17, 24 and 31 July
Thursday evenings in the Church Hall: 18 and 25 July and 1 August
A selection of our favourite prayers, to help you express your feelings to God and to draw comfort and support from Him.
