What the Bible Says About

Applying our faith to the complexities of C.21st life is a constant challenge. Christians do not always agree how to apply the teaching of the Bible to the modern world.  How should we use Scripture to shape our approach to the complex moral and ethical challenges we face?  The team of Steve Chilcraft, John Robertson and Peter Ballantine will examine what the Bible does (or does not) say on six major issues:

  • Church, State and Politics
  • Sex and Relationships
  • Family/Marriage/Divorce
  • Work and Leisure
  • War and Peace
  • The Environment



What shall we tell the kids?

A course offering  support to parents of younger children who want to ensure they pass on their Christian faith to their children. Why is this needed? What is it we want to pass on? Where is the best place for the transmission of the faith? Who should be primarily involved? When is the best time? Then, for most of us, there is the most pressing question of all: how?
