St Nicholas' Church, Churchstoke
Address
Churchstoke, SY15 6AF

On four Thursday evenings in November/December and four in January/February at 7pm in Churchstoke Church's meeting room we will be following the Bible Course from the Bible Society.
Big, complex, old … just some of the words people use to describe the Bible. Sound familiar? That’s where The Bible Course comes in. The course will increase your confidence, equip you to read the Bible better and help you to see its relevance to daily life. The course provides a birds-eye view of the world’s bestselling book.

Over the eight interactive sessions, it combines video teaching, group discussion, personal reflection and daily readings.
Key features
The Bible Course helps you see how the books of the Bible are part of one big story
Using a unique storyline, The Bible Course will show you how key events, books and characters fit together
Video teaching, written guides, diagrams and readings will help you grow in confidence as you read the Bible for yourself.
It's a great follow-on resource for those who have done introductory courses like Alpha and Christianity Explored
There is a course book available at a cost of £4.99. Please contact Carol if you would like to come.

This will take place over 4 weeks in Nov/Dec and four weeks in Jan/Feb. See above for more details of dates
