Bible Study and other learning opportunities – Autumn 2019-Spring 2020
Please feel free to contact the clergy, should you wish to attend any of the following:
Introduction to Christianity
We will be running an Alpha Course in the New Year, with eleven weekly sessions, starting in the week beginning 3 February 2020, and meeting in the Vicarage on dates and at times to be agreed with the intending participants. There will be a concluding Saturday awayday on 22 May. The course is an introduction to the Christian faith. It will be run in a St John’s Wood Church sort of way, setting the course materials in the context of the teaching and practice of the Church of England, and with plenty of opportunity for discussion. Places are limited, so priority will be given to enquirers and those who are new to the Christian faith. If you are interested, please contact either of the clergy.
Bible study: Genesis 1-11
A set of Bible studies, led by Jaiye Edhu and the clergy
Wednesday 16 October, 8-9.15pm, in the Vicarage.
This is an opportunity to look closely at the opening chapters of Genesis, sometimes known as the Primeval History. The stories are familiar to us all: the Creation, Adam and Eve, the eating of the apple, Cain and Abel, Noah and the Ark, the Tower of Babel. But when you look closely at the biblical text, there are all sorts of questions and surprises. These are stories that continue to challenge us, even as the modern world challenges our reading of them.
Please bring a Bible with you to the sessions. Any translation is fine – the more versions we have in the room, the better.
A guided tour of Hell
led by The Revd Dr Anders Bergquist
Sunday afternoons, at 4.30pm (tea) for 4.45pm, in the Church Hall next to the church.
Following the interest sparked by his readings from Dante’s Purgatory (during Lent) and Paradise (during Easter), the Vicar will complete the series by going back to the first of the three parts of the Divine Comedy.
20 October: Lost in the wood (Canto 1)
3 November: Paolo and Francesca (Canto 5)
10 November: Brunetto Latini (Canto 15)
17 November: Ulysses (Canto 26)
24 November: Satan (Canto 34)
Bishop Edward Holland will baptize and confirm at a Choral Eucharist at 10.30am on Sunday 3 November . We expect to present both adults and young people for confirmation at this service. If you are interested, please contact one of the clergy.
A course of preparations for children will be led by Kristina Andréasson on the church premises, at the following times:
Session 1: Sunday 29 September, at 10.45am
