A few comments from previous course participants.
"The course gave me the confidence to discuss my faith and to ask questions."
"I learned a lot, not just about the Old Testament, which I was rusty on, but about myself and where I want to go in my faith."
"The course gave me a new understanding of how Scripture can form part of day-to-day prayer and spirituality, without neglecting the historical and critical context of the biblical writings. It has opened up a rich exploration for me."
"I did not join the course with definite plans for a formal role, but I am now reflecting on how to best focus my contribution to church life."
"I feel that I have now studied the Bible at a different level and would like to continue."
"It was a wonderful mixture of thought provoking material, with some fun, and some helpful meditations."
"The greatest benefit was meeting with others from different church traditions and finding lots of common ground."
"I gained a greater understanding of what God wants from me and learnt things that I had not even considered."
"I appreciated having the opportunity to focus on aspects of the Bible that were new to me or that I had not thought about for a long time."
