Bible Study

There are TWO Bible Study groups.

The FIRST one meets in the afternoon and is led by Glyn Stanway, Reader at St Mary’s.
Open to everyone who wants to discuss the world’s best selling book and learn about its author. We take Bible passages as starting points for informal discussions on faith and experience.
Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, at 2.30 pm at
12 Conway Close and the dates of meetings are published in the monthly calendar on this website.
It is advisable to give Glyn a call on 822620 to confirm the published date.


The SECOND group meets in the evening and is led by Rev Julia Murphy, Chaplain at the University of Essex.
Are you free on Thursday evenings? Are you keen to know more about Christianity or are you just hungry for more of God’s word?
Then the Thursday Group could be for you.
This group will focus on studying different books of the Bible, with a mixture of Old and New Testament themes, offering the opportunity to delve deeper into Scripture.
Currently the group is studying Acts of the Apostles and these are the topics:

16/5/19 The Holy Spirit comes at Pentecost 2.1-24; 36-41
6/6/19 Outbreak of Persecution 3.1-4.31
20/6/19 Stephen the Martyr 6.8-7.60
4/7/19 Philip the Evangelist 8.1-40
18/7/19 Conversion of Saul 9.1-31

Meetings are held twice a month on the first and third Thursday at 7.30pm at Mariners, Rectory Hill.  If you are interested in joining please contact Rev Julia Murphy on 01206 683676 (please leave a message!).
