Lent begins on February 17th

THIS YEAR

We are using a Bible Society course. It sets out the overall structure of the Bible, explains how God has revealed His plan for mankind through the Bible -  and shows how the Bible speaks to us today.

WHY A COURSE ON THE BIBLE?

The Bible is at the centre of our faith, but so often we find that some parts of it are difficult to relate to our daily lives. The course will help our understanding and encourage us to read the Bible more.

WHAT'S INVOLVED?

Video presentations -  discussion topics and  daily Bible readings. The course book (£5) summarises each session . Click here to see a ‘trailer’ video. Click here to see the video for the (introductory) Session 1 and the discussion topics. All the videos are also available on our website. Links to all the Session videos are listed at the bottom of this page.

WHEN/HOW CAN WE MEET?

There will be three Zoom sessions each week:

Monday 1000 – 1045 (Lyndon/David)

Wednesday 2000 – 2045 (Pam/Keith)

Thursday 1500 – 1545 (Sue/Annie)

Please email us roxbournestandrews@aol.com  to let us know which Zoom session you would like to attend and if you would like to buy the course book.

ZOOM MEETINGS?

Maybe some of us who normally attend a Lent Group would rather not get involved with a Zoom group. Nevertheless you will still be able to view the videos, which are well presented and thought provoking, and use the book for the daily Bible readings.  Also, for anyone who does not have access to a computer or smart phone, we may be able to provide a DVD of the videos. Please let us know if this would help.

PRIVATE STUDY

If you are someone who prefers individual study during Lent, the Church of England has produced a Lent booklet “#LiveLent: God’s Story, Our Story”. It includes daily Bible readings and suggestions for reflection. Click here for further information on the booklet. Please let us know if you would like to buy a copy (£2).

Lent is one of the most important times in the Church’s calendar. We hope that you will find the proposed Bible Course and/or the Lent booklet helpful at this challenging time for us all.
