Creative Bible Reading - the Lent course
Cliff College is pleased to be offering an online Lent study course designed for small group study. Creative Bible Reading is a six-session course taught by Rev Dr Mike Parsons that will introduce participants to different approaches to reading and understanding the Bible.
Each session comes with 35-45 minutes of video content and questions designed for reflection and discussion. Your group can work through the videos before each session or watch them together during your meetings. Participants can also access the questions before and after each session if they wish to do further personal reflection.
The course costs from £25 per person*. All proceeds from this Lent course will go to support United Theological College in Harare, Zimbabwe, one of Cliff College's global partners.
Home to students studying to serve in ordained ministry, UTC is experiencing unprecedented pressure from the effects Covid-19. By taking this Lent course, you will be supporting the students and staff at UTC with invaluable food, water, and PPE as they seek to serve God’s people in Zimbabwe.
