St Martin’s Bible Reading Scheme – 5th to 11th February

St Martin’s Bible Reading Scheme – 5th to 11th February

Your Bible reading time is precious. Try not to rush it. Choose a time when you are not tired or anxious; preferably the same time each day, so it can become a good habit. Start with a few minutes silence, so you are calm to receive from God. Then pray. You might like to use the prayer below. In the same way, after reading, be silent and still so God can speak to you. Make a note of what He says and of any verses that strike you. Father, time reading my Bible is time spent with you. As I read, help me to understand it and be changed by it. Holy Spirit, cleanse my mind of all unhelpful and distracting thoughts and breathe life into the words. Lord Jesus, I welcome you into my body, mind and spirit. Heal me, so that I may use what you say to serve and represent you well today. Amen....

Bible Reading Scheme

In 2009, the church read the New Testament in a year.  We had our own plan for doing that and many bought a paperback New Testament so they could write in it any notes or questions they had. We want to repeat that in 2018, with as many church members as possible using the plan together to improve our Bible knowledge. Bob will be in the church each morning at 8:30 to read the day's passage for those who prefer to listen than to read. In addition, there will be a weekly Bible Study on Saturday morning around the same time as Café.   You can attend every week, or occasionally as you prefer.  There will be time for questions about the week’s readings and time to explore insights together that we might miss alone. We will start the weekly Bible Study on 13th January at 10.15 am. We will be publishing the programme each week.  We want to have everyone reading the same passages each...
