Bible Study Groups
People sometimes have the idea that bible study groups are for very serious clever people who sit around nodding their heads and saying very deep meaningful things – well, they’ve obviously never been to one of our groups!
Looking at god's word
Here at St Andrew’s we’re all pretty ordinary, biblically challenged people and we’re always laid back and informal. The thing we all have in common is that we genuinely love Jesus and want to learn more about the things that God has said and done. We’ve found that our faith has really grown as a result of looking at God’s word.
Meets at St. Andrew's Church on the 3rd Saturday of most months
Dig Deeper is a monthly DVD/ Bible discussion group which meets at St. Andrew’s on the third Saturday of most months. It’s for anyone who’d like to deepen their faith and understanding of the Bible, for those who have recently come to faith, or those who have been Christians for many years. It’s ideal for people who are unable to attend a mid-week house group, as well as those who do attend one, but want an occasional ‘top up’. People from several local churches attend, but mainly St. Andrew’s and St. Margaret’s.
The DVD comprises talks from lecturers at St. Mellitus College. Notes of the material are available. Forthcoming talks are:
- 16 February – Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension
- 16 March – The Holy Spirit
- 18 May – The Trinity
- 15 June – Fulfilment
- 20 July – Extended Questions and Answers
Each session is free standing, and you can come to whichever you wish.
Our typical morning looks like this:
- 9:30 Breakfast
- 10:00 DVD teaching
- 11:00 Refreshments
- 11:15 Discussion in groups of 6-10 people
- 12:30 Close
We ask for a small donation of £2 to cover costs such as refreshments and the DVD – but don’t let that put you off coming.
