STUDIES THROUGH THE CHURCH YEAR

 

The studies provided here are based on the main Sunday lectionary readings for the church year. You are welcome to use these studies for your own meditation, for Home Group sessions, or as an additional resource to complement and reinforce the message of the Sunday sermon. 

 

 

STUDIES FOR LOCKDOWN

Where is God in all this?

This week we are starting a new series,  focusing on Bible characters who have shared problems and issues resulting from isolation and the kind of stresses we all face in dealing with the current coronavirus pandemic.

Notes and discussion questions for home groups (or for further personal study) will be posted here week by week.

 

STUDIES FOR LENT 2020

Our studies for Lent this year will be taken from SAYING YES TO LIFE (the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2020) by Ruth Valerio, who is the Global Advocacy and Influencing Director at Tearfund. SAYING YES TO LIFE looks at the beauty and variety of God’s creation as told in Genesis chapter 1, and considers our responsibility to care for God’s Creation today.

The following notes come with Biblical references and discussion questions for home groups, or for individual study.
Copies of  SAYING YES TO LIFE are available through Cornerstone Book Shop.
Further resources, including interviews with various experts on each chapter of the book, can be found here.
