Let the Bible do the Work!

Workshops that demonstrate stress free ways to lead and how to create Bible study groups that could change your church and your life.  These workshops will be very useful for Big Read groups but they are designed for any Bible study groups.

For the King James 400 and Biblefresh year, this is about how to have a good Bible study group using basic facilitation skills. You will get a chance to be part of a group using two different approaches in two real Bible studies. You will discuss with the facilitator what went well/less well and you can expect to learn new group handling and question framing skills.

Workshops take place over two evenings or on a Saturday morning and are designed by Canon Sheila Bamber (St Nicholas Cathedral Newcastle), John Sadler (Mission Initiative North East, Byker) and Peter Middlemiss, a Reader from Berwick-upon-Tweed (previously Warden of Holland House Retreat Centre, Diocese of Worcester).
