Here you will find the study materials that the Life Groups have done at St Paul’s church. If you are looking for the current Life Group study then this is the main Life Group page found HERE.
In July 2020, we launched The Bible Course as our next discipleship adventure together as a church – through our Life Groups and for individuals to study via our weekly email, if they are not in any of our Life Groups.
There’s a great little 1min video on the The Bible Society Bible Course website. See the link below if you want a quick overview. https://www.biblesociety.org.uk/explore-the-bible/the-bible-course/
This course is not just for beginner Christians, but for those who have been Christians reading Gods word for sometime. Some of the congregation have road testing it for us and they are all loving it. One said just like when she started the Prayer Course, they were “A bit sceptical and wondered if they’d learn anything new, but really enjoying it, especially the great discussions and questions it provokes and then answers.”
