BIBLE IN A YEAR
Wednesdays 7:45-9:30pm at St John's
Beginning Wednesday 9th January 2019

Bible in a year was piloted at St John's during 2018. The study material was compiled by Nick, with support from Dave

We aim to study every book of the Bible in 43 weeks using a mixture of:
  • Introductory teaching from the front,
  • small group discussions,
  • interactive bible studies and quizzes
  • handouts, and resources for further study.
  • We use the Lion Hand book to the Bible (about £17) as a basic course book.
  • There is no written work, and the course is offered free of charge.
By the end of the 2019, those who do the whole course should have an acquaintance with every book of the Bible, and be more confident in applying the bible to their lives.

It would be great if people did the whole course, but, if that is not possible, you could join in for the bits that interest you, or the weeks you are able to do.
