Exploring the Bible
Since 2012, a group of parishioners has been meeting each week, to explore the Bible and to ask ourselves, how it might relate to our lives today. Before the Pandemic, we met in Shalom, beside St Mark’s church, each Monday. Some people come weekly, others less frequently. All are welcome!
When the Pandemic hit, we had a gap of a few weeks. However, we discovered that we missed our connection and the chance it gave us to prepare for Mass each Sunday. By introducing us to the readings beforehand, we had the
opportunity to read and reflect on what each reading might mean for us today.
Although none of us was very good with technology, we learned how to set up and connect to a Zoom meeting. In this way we were able to see each other and continue the reflection that we had in Shalom.
Each week a group of between six and eight of us meet on Zoom to share our thoughts, insights and questions on the readings for the following Sunday’s mass. We invite you to join us!
No previous knowledge of the Bible is required. What each of us brings to the
meeting is a desire to explore the faith that has guided our lives and to learn to understand and appreciate it more fully.
We don’t have easy answers to the hard questions of life, but we do share our faith and hope in Jesus and in the power of God’s Word. We also help each other toward a better understanding of what it means to be a believer in today’s world.
