Hearing God’s Word Course

 
As a Parish, we are committed to developing our volunteers in their respective ministries with a view to fulfilling our Parish Vision and the expectations of our Lord regarding our mission to present the Kingdom of God to our community.   Bishop James has asked us to run a course in this Parish called ‘Hearing God’s Word’ which aims to teach on interpreting and applying the Bible. The course covers  The God who loves to speak;  Interpreting and understanding God’s Word;  Ask, ‘Why?’;  How the New Testament came to us;  Truly hearing God’s Word It is a six week course which we are running on the following dates and times and in both churches. 
 Tuesday 12th, 19th, 26th September and 3rd, 10th, 17th October 2017. Mornings - 10am at All Souls  Evenings - 7.30pm at St Mary’s
 You only need to attend either the morning or the evening session - not both. Each session will be for approximately two hours and is open to anyone who is interested.
 The course will be delivered by Richard Jones and Karl. Richard has a Master’s Degree in Hermeneutics (the branch of knowledge that deals with interpretation, especially of the Bible or literary texts) and brings specific gifts to teaching this course.
 If you would like to join us, please let the Parish Office know, indicating which session you will attend.
