Rev Elizabeth Raine and Rev Dr John Squires lead our weekly bible study meetings that take place online every Thursday at 10:00am or 7:00pm.
Our recent bible studies have covered topics such as exploring how biblical texts relate to social justice issues and sustainability, discussing the lesser known women in the bible and how biblical women have typically been portrayed in Christian culture, and using Midrash as a method to gain greater insight into biblical texts.
The studies are designed to give the participants a greater knowledge of the texts, gain a more profound understanding using various principles of biblical interpretation, and explore how biblical messages can be applied to our everyday lives. The participants learn a range of skills allowing them to read, interpret, and understand the events and stories contained in the writings in a more comprehensive way. If you would like to join our bible study groups please contact us.
