Bishop’s Bible Day

Come to the Bishop’s Bible Day

This year the theme is The Old Testament for the church and the world today.

The day for anyone who uses the Bible; in their ministry, in church, in school, at work, in the community and at home.

There are two talks from Bishop Donald, and a choice of two workshops during the day.

There are many available including:

  • Friends or Foes? Multiculturalism in the Old Testament: exploring the contradictory traditions of ethnic purity and being YHWH’s means of saving all the nations with Bishop John.
  • The Good Shepherd: How Jesus used Psalm 23 to describe himself and his mission with Chrys Tremththanmor
  • Amnon and Tamar: Top tips for avoiding Lust and Murder in everyday life. A frank and honest reflection on handling challenging issues in discipleship and accountability with Chad Chadwick
  • What can we learn from the Life Coaches in the Old Testament? with Adrian Holdstock
  • Scripture in a nut shell: Human identity, Death and Life with Charlie Nobbs
  • Making the connection between Old and New : When is the New more helpfully understood in the light of the Old? with Richard Ormston
  • The prophet Joel: how deep do our reflection and penitence go? with Barry Morrison.
  • Exploring the timeline of the Old Testament through storytelling with Angela Hughes
  • “Will you be for me a Kingdom of Priests” (Exodus 19:6) What on earth are we here for? with Steve Benoy.

It all happens on Saturday 18 March 2017, 9:30am – 4pm at Northampton High School for Girls, Newport Pagnell Road, Northampton, NN4 6UU
