Scripture Study!

A big thank you to Fr Matthew & Fr Richard for their very friendly, accessible sessions on Acts. The sessions have been most informative and thought provoking.

The next group of online meetings led by Fr Richard will be exploring Isaiah, which is perfect for the lead up to Advent. The first Zoom meet will be on Tuesday 13th October, 7.45-8.45pm, and then every Tuesday. Please join us and invite your friends.

The focus for the first session is based on Isaiah 1, which is a summary of the whole book. Optional pre-reading to get some historical background is 2 Kings, chapters,18-25.

To participate, please use the following details:

Acts of the Apostles: The Birth of the Church

In our Scripture study sessions from Holy Cross Priory, we are exploring the Acts of the Apostles, looking at how the Church was formed around the Risen Christ and sent out after his Ascension and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

How are we sent today in that same Spirit to our 21st-century society?

Please have a Bible to hand, though you can also follow just by listening. If you make sure your microphone and camera are working, you’ll be able to make your own contributions. It will also be possible to ask questions, respond to polls, and chat in the sidebar.

The session will last one hour.

Hope you can join us!
