Fr Matt Blake OCD will present three sessions to help us understand the history and context of the Bible in preparation for the coming year of “The God Who Speaks”.  The evening sessions are Wednesdays 2, 9 and 16 October starting at 7:45pm and the morning sessions are Thursdays 3, 10 and 17 October from 9.30am.  This course is FREE but donations are welcome.  No need to register.

We declare to you what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life.

1 John 1:1

The God Who Speaks: The Year of the Word 2020


The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have designated 2020 as a year in celebration of “The God Who Speaks”.  Scripture, the Bible, the Word of God - whatever we like to call it - is at the centre of everything the Church does.  It is in our prayer and worship, how we understand the world, how we are called to live and how we relate to each another.  During this special year, we will be invited to celebrate, live and share God’s word in a more focused way.
