Bible Study Lent 2017

This year for Lent, we are doing a bible study.  We are using the Bible Studies for Lent 2017, God’s Heart for Migrants’, written by Dr David Shepherd on behalf of the Biblical Association for the Church of Ireland.

There is a little booklet for each person which contains the readings, etc., so you will not even need to remember to bring your bible with you, but, of course, you are most welcome to do so.

The first one ‘God’s People as Migrants’ will take place during the Holy Communion Service on Ash Wednesday (1 March 2017) in St Philip and St James’ Church at 20.00 hours

The others bible studies will be in the Canon Osborne Barr Room of St Philip and St James’ Parish Centre at 20.00 hours on:

Thursday 9 March 2017… God’s Heart for Migrants

Thursday 23 March 2017… Ruth – a Story of Migration

Thursday 30 March 2017… Ruth – a Story of Integration

Thursday 6 April 2017… A Migrant People

 Please note that there will be no bible study on Thursday 16 March 2017, as we are aware of a number of people going away that evening for the St Patrick’s Weekend.

All are welcome to the bible study.  We anticipate each session lasting one hour.
