Walk through the Bible this Lent -The Old Testament in a Nutshell


The Old Testament is vitally important to our understanding of Jesus but we rarely dwell on it in any great depth. Our Lent Course this year will be presented by 'Walk through the Bible,' who are committed to guiding people through the 'big picture' of the Biblical texts.

The course will run from Wednesday 13 March to 10 April, from 7.30 to 9pm. There is a cost of £14 for all five sessions and a helpful workbook. 

See booking form in church or contact Revd Caroline Risdon
