This coming Sunday (6th October) is the second of our new Bible studies, which take place after Mass (about 12 noon) on the first Sunday of the month.
While our first session looked at women in ministry and the biblical texts that relate to this, from this month we’ll be working our way through a commentary on the Acts of the Apostles by Phyllis J. Le Peau, copies of which are available to buy from Fr Philip for £5.
The Acts of the Apostles, probably written by the author of Luke’s Gospel, is an account of the activity of the apostles and the early church in the months and years after Jesus’s resurrection, focusing on the action of the Holy Spirit in the spread of Christianity. This Sunday we will be looking at the first two chapters of Acts, which cover the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, and Peter’s sermon to the crowds, and thinking about what issues these chapters raise for our lives.
We hope that by reading the Bible together our faith and our fellowship will be deepened. All are welcome to come along – but please bring some food to share afterwards!
