Holy Habits – Bible Study

Lectio Divina– a well-established way of reading the bible and the bible reading you!
1. Read 
Pick a passage. To begin with, choose any of the Psalms or a passage in one of the Gospels. Read the passage slowly, out loud if you can. Read it twice with one minute of silence in between. 
Reflect on the passage you have read, savour one word or phrase that you have noticed more than others during your reading. Write this word down and begin pondering what God might be saying to you through this. How is this word speaking to your life?
3. Re-read 
Read the passage one more time.
4. Respond 
Speak out in prayer what you sense God is saying to you. Tell Him how you feel encouraged, challenged by what He is saying to you and ask that the seed of His word in your heart would develop deep rooted truth that would lead to fruitfulness in your life.  
5. Rest 
Simply take some time to allow God to wrap you in His love, and let the word He has given you rest on you.
6. Resolve 
Finish by thinking of one way you might be able to live out the word that has penetrated your heart in your daily life.

The Bible Course

An eight-session course helping you explore the world’s bestseller.

The Bible is a big and complicated book to read and for many it can be difficult to know where to start. Maybe you’ve been part of a Bible study group and want to build your confidence so you can study the Bible on your own, or maybe you need help connecting together the bits you’ve been reading. The Bible Course is a great resource, whether you are familiar with the Bible or just starting out.

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.

The video teaching, course guide and daily readings will help you grow in confidence as you read the Bible for yourself.

Acts as a great follow-on resource for those who have done introductory courses like Alpha and Christianity Explored.

This is an online course via zoom, which is very easy to use and you will be sent a link each week to join the group from the comfort of your own home.

We will start on Tuesday evenings from 26th January
