Prayer and Bible Study


Please click for the Prayer Diary for November.



Are you stuck for words? The people we know are more open to faith than we might think. 43% of people believe Jesus rose from the dead, but many Christians struggle to talk about their faith in their everyday lives.

This course consists of six practical, video-based sessions which will inspire you to share your faith. It will give you practical tips to help you to be natural and relevant as you seek to share Jesus with the people you meet. The goal is to equip you to make the most of every opportunity to hep friends, colleagues and family members to consider Jesus for themselves and to become his followers. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15.

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu said: The most helpful way people hear the good news of God in Jesus Christ is by a follower of Jesus sharing their encounter with Jesus. This inspiring course will help Christians to be witnesses to Jesus Christ wherever God has placed them.

The course will be run at the Trull Church Community Centre on six Tuesday evenings: 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd October and 5th and 12th November, from 7.15 – 9.00 pm. It will be led by the Diocesan Faith Sharing Enabler Andy Gray, who is a lively and engaging speaker. I shall be going in my car and can give up to four people a lift. If you would like to go, please let me know and I’ll book you a space. They would like to know numbers in advance, if possible. If you have any questions, please be in touch with me. See also,
