Tuesday 19th March : The Bible Study Group meets in The O’Connor Room at 7.45 p.m. when the study will be based on Ephesians 3, 14-21 entitled ‘Get your hands on your wealth’. Sounds interesting! Please join us if you are free.
We are half way through our winter study programme in the Bible Study Group, and from now on we will be looking at Paul’s Epistle or Letter to the Ephesians. On the last Tuesday of January the Rector masterfully led us in an introduction to the letter – and if you missed it, you missed a real treat! Andrew said the Epistle was a sort of ‘hand-book’ about how to live the Christian life - a guide to God’s new society for His people. Its four main themes are: (1) the New Life given to us in Christ, (2) the New Society created through Christ, (3) the New Standards God expects us to live by, and (4) the New Relationships that come from living in Christ. Amazingly, the wonderful letter of encouragement to the early churches was written by Paul as he was languishing in a Roman prison, chained to the wall or to his guard, and awaiting execution! We need Paul’s inspired advice and teaching as much as the letter’s first recipients did, so if you are free, please come along and join us in this journey with Paul. During March we will be meeting every Tuesday evening at 7,45pm in the O’Connor Room in St. Anne’s.
On Tuesday 12th March our guest speaker will be Catherine Little of the Bible Society. In her role with the Society, Catherine visits churches of various denominations all over the world, and she will be sharing her experiences of how the Scriptures are still being produced and circulated near and far. Catherine is an interesting speaker and is well worth hearing. If you are free, please feel free to come along and learn with us. You will be very welcome.
