Why bible study?
In this 500th anniversary year of the Reformation, when through the printing press, the Bible was made increasingly available to people in their native language, it is particularly appropriate that we share with other Christians and are refreshed through the study of the Bible. Each leader takes us through different approaches to studying and learning from a scriptural passage.
Big because we get to meet many other Christians and together are encouraged to be BIG and bold about our faith. The Big Bible Study is an ecumenical event for people of all ages from Worcestershire and the surrounding area, and is organised by a planning group from churches of different traditions in Worcester.
Cost - £4 pp to include a bread and soup lunch. For planning purposes it would be helpful if people could register in advance. People can, however, just turn up on the day.
