Understanding & Teaching the Bible


South Central Gospel Partnership

Saturday 26th January 9.30-12.30

 at St Mary's Maidenhead


Before Christmas some from our congregations went to an earlier presentation given by the same group called 'An Overview of the Bible.' They are now running a similar event aimed at helping us get a better understanding of a Bible passage. They'll look at how you start with a text, and move from understanding it rightly, to working out application and teaching points from it.


This is suitable for anyone who wants to be better at understanding the Bible for themselves, whether a new Christian, or someone who has been a Christian for many years as well as those who, at some time, might lead a small group.


There is no charge and no booking is necessary, but do let Keith know if you are interested in going.
