The Year of the Bible offers the people of the diocese of Chichester to take a closer look at this definitive guide. We could all benefit from learning more about its history and composition, about how it’s been read and interpreted, and how our modern outlook has to measure itself against the truth that rests in biblical stories, prayers, poetry and teaching and will outlive us all.
To mark the Year of the Bible we will be reading it from start to finish in the church, non stop, over 4 days.
There will be a display of the parishoners favourite bible quotes/stories, and why those passages speak to them.
