Resources to help deepen your engagement with the God Who Speaks through Scripture.
Bible Study Group We will begin a journey through the book of Hebrews this year, starting on Monday 16th January. As with most journeys there will be a main road, with many a side turning to go down to explore the landscapes we will be travelling through. High mountains with clear views, narrow winding tracks where the going will be slow and careful with surprises around every corner, thick wooded areas where it will be difficult to see the wood for the trees, clear open meadows where the way is open and progress is good, valleys of beauty and plenty to rest and feed our souls.
To start an expedition, you need the best guide and we will be led by the perfect guide, the Holy Spirit, who as promised, will guide us into all truth.
We meet in Compass House at 11.00am for coffee, aiming to start at 11.15am and finish by 12.30pm. If you would like to join in this journey please email Jenny Chapman email@example.com
The Catechism in a Year
The Bartimaeus Project is a series of talks given by a group of parish priests in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton to give people a deeper understanding of the Catholic Faith. We have called it “The Bartimaeus Project” because of Bartimaeus’ request of Jesus “Lord let me see”. He is, of course, asking for physical sight, but in the Gospel that is also a metaphor for understanding.
