One Parish, Three Churches

St Mary’s Bible Study Group

BIBLE STUDY GROUPS

These happen in people’s homes and are small, informal gatherings to facilitate learning in faith and a growing together in fellowship.

There is also a VIRTUAL GROUP which discusses and comments on the same study material using facebook and twitter.

To join one of these groups or to find out more information please contact Rev’d Sally Goodson. (associate.vicar@stmarys.parishofharpenden.org)

MONTHLY DISCUSSION GROUP FOR BRF NOTE USERS

Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) notes are available to order for private use at home. These include a daily portion of the bible to read with a reflection and prayer to help ones own personal prayer time.

Once a month, on the third Friday afternoon of each month, starting at 2.15 pm, some people who use these notes gather for an informal discussion and prayer time at the home of Marion Pearson.

If you would like to order BRF Notes and/or join this monthly group please contact Rev’d Sally Goodson. (associate.vicar@stmarys.parishofharpenden.org)

OCCASIONAL STUDY COURSES

Other courses run on a more occasional basis and include Christian basics courses using Emmaus, Alpha or Pilgrim material, especially suited for those enquiring about the Christian faith or new to the Christian journey.

From time to time we also run courses and one off study talks or workshop days about a variety of topics which seek to deepen faith and equip us as Christ’s disciples to more fully live out our calling in the world. These teaching sessions may be on matters of church life and doctrine (eg St Paul, the liturgical year), or on aspects of spirituality (eg ways to pray), or on more practical aspects of serving in the church (eg pastoral care).
