Bible Study Day

In addition to the structured courses, we also run an annual Bible Study day in association with Methodist Evangelicals Together. Normally held in October or November, we invite an external speaker to spend time with us so we may develop our understanding of a particular theme or topic from the Bible.

This year's Bible Study day was held on Saturday 12th October from 10.00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.  The day was led by Rev Ashley Cooper, who is the principal at Cliff College, on the book of Colossians.

To listen to a recording of the morning and afternoon sessions please see below.
