Preparing for Jonah Bible Month

Bible Month Learning Event
Perth Methodist Church
Friday 2nd March 2018
10 am to 3.30 pm

The Methodist Bible Month Initiative, provides churches and circuits with an opportunity to focus on Jonah for an entire month (June is suggested), with support  materials being made available via the Connexional website. The Bible Month Initiative is an important response to the challenge of developing biblical engagement and biblical literacy throughout the Connexion.

In preparation for the Bible month, Professor John Drane and Olive Fleming Drane will lead local preachers and worship leaders, small group leaders and anyone who would like an opportunity to enhance their biblical knowledge and understanding.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided; there is no charge for the event.  Perth’s premises were refurbished in 2017, and provide a warm welcoming environment for study and fellowship.

To book a place please contact Fiona at the Scotland District office, making her aware of any specific dietary requirements.

The Learning and Development Forum for Scotland and Shetland wishes to offer financial support to people who may require to book overnight accommodation in Perth, or travel from Shetland. Our notional position is that we will pay one third of the travel costs from Shetland  and one third of the accommodation costs for folk from either district who require overnight accommodation in Perth (up to a joint total of 15 places), in the hope that local circuits or district funds might also contribute one third. Should you wish to avail yourself of this opportunity please inform Fiona and Gary Williams, National Learning and Development Coordinator – Scotland & Shetland, will then get in touch.

This event has been arranged in conjunction with a evening meal and meeting on Friday, and a day event ‘Reimagine Church’ on Saturday.

Trey is aware of the challenging context for Methodism in many places and his work to date has been warmly received and found to be relevant and helpful by Methodists in other districts.
