Do you understand what you are reading when it comes to the scriptures?

Where did they come from?  What do they mean?  What is the real history?  What can I learn?  How can I read them and bring them to life?


This is a two part course, looking first at the Old Testament and then at the New Testament.  This will increase your knowledge like never before but in a relaxed and easy to understand way.


We shall go on a journey together through history to see where the Bible came from, how the books tie together and how the two Testaments help us to understand and proclaim the Gospel in everyday life.


Each module of the course lasts for 10 weeks but there is no need to worry about it being hard for it is just one hour a week with no essays or exams.  Just take notes if you want and start to read the bible.


There will be a break between the two modules so you don't have to give up half the year straight away!

So what will each course contain?
