ZOOM PARISH BIBLE STUDY
A small group meets on Zoom on alternate Thursday Evenings at 7.00 pm. The Link is on Enfold. The session will open at 6.50 pm to give time for chit chat before settling to the study. The sessions will last about an hour or as the spirit takes us! We will also discuss what we want to look at next and review meeting frequency.
We would be pleased to welcome additional members to the group. It is very gentle and we progress together!
You can click on the Enfold link on this page to join.
The next three sessions start this Thursday 7th January followed by Thursdays 21st January and 4th February. We will be looking at the Book of Ruth and if you are not familiar with it please read it before Thursday, It doesn't take long! Ruth is particularly interesting as a non Jew but a direct ancestor of King David and therefore Jesus. It also gives an insight into Jewish practices at the time. All in all plenty to explore! We extend a warm welcome to other people to join us.
St Mark’s Zoom Home Group
This will be for the three St Mark’s Home Groups combining during Covid restrictions, but new members are welcome. It will start at 7.30 pm. More information from Charles Beresford (01773 826519 or 07722 855960).
