Study

Below you will find a pool of texts for study. You are welcome to download and/or print them, and also to choose an open date on our Calendar if you wish to lead a Sunday study session. These are informal discussions, where the leader introduces the text they’ve chosen and offers some reflection on it to begin the conversation. If you haven’t led a session before and you’d like to volunteer or ask about it, please feel free to email Benny at benjamin.william.baird@gmail.com.
