We trust you are having an enjoyable summer as in previous years an email a month to remind you that bible studies will return the first week in October I hope you don’t mind.
We are looking forward to the Tuesday study, This Jesus, based on the writings of Luke. The exciting history of the early proclamation of the good news about Jesus Christ. Starting Tuesday 3rd October.
There is still time to fill in the short survey about the online bible studies to help inform our future thinking https://forms.gle/AeC9bjTQtbZiFan49 . Thank you to those who have done so already.
Over the summer we have been working on uploading some of Gordon’s previous teaching to the website,
Let me recommend the When I survey series, which includes both the audio and a transcript.
We are looking for someone to help proof read transcriptions maybe you would like to help?
In the meantime, Gordon offers the following prayer points as preparation starts for the Summer Mission.
Let us give thanks for the contacts made throughout the past months on the Discord online Bible Studies.
