Why should we read the Bible? Alpha course continues with big questions

Home » Circuit News » Why should we read the Bible?

MANY of us have read the Bible since childhood.

According to a long-established world records organisation, there is little doubt that the Bible is the world's best-selling and most widely distributed book.

A survey by the Bible Society concluded that around 2.5 billion copies were printed between 1815 and 1975, but more recent estimates put the number at more than five billion.

Why should we read the Bible? As Christians, it might seem like an obvious question, but this will be explored at an ongoing Alpha course which will resume on Thursday evening.

The free online course, led by the Rev. Jenny Porterpryde, is taking place via Zoom every Thursday at 7.30pm.

Each week, participants watch a different short video before joining together to discuss various aspects of the Christian faith and life's big questions.

Rev. Porterpryde said that each session takes place in a relaxed, informal environment, with everyone across the Circuit and beyond encouraged to join in.

"The sessions have been very enjoyable," said Rev. Porterpryde. "It has been great to join together to discuss the big issues in life, and hopefully very informative. If you're thinking of giving it a go, you'll be most welcome."

Why not give it a try? Email prydejennym@gmail.com for more details and to join in via Zoom.
