The Adventures of King David

Thursdays 23 January - 12 March
Location: The Old Library
12.45pm - 1.30pm (following the 12.15 Holy Communion). 

This term our Bible studies will be exploring the figure of King David. He is a fascinating, if sometimes controversial figure: these are not stories for the fainthearted! Rather than working through one scriptural book, these sessions will provide an opportunity to roam around the canon of the Old Testament and Apocrypha. They will be an excellent introduction for anyone beginning to read the Bible for the first time.

Hot drinks are provided, and you are welcome to bring a packed lunch.
