New Advent Study - Immanuel : God with us

Hark the glad sound Bible Study

These studies look at several ways in which the Bible reveals to us the person of Jesus and his Messianic role, both through prophesy and the personal testimony of those who walked with him, or like Paul, had their lives turned around by a spiritual encounter with Jesus.

Available as a pdf download, inexpensive, plenty of information, discussion questions and even artwork to help you think about its various themes.

One of several easy-to-use Bible studies available. For more information click this link

    Everyday Prayers

 Everyday Prayers

This collection of 200 new prayers are simply the prayers of everyday life - the journey of faith with its ups and downs, thinking about ourselves, those we love, the people around us, and the bigger picture of praying for our neighbours, whoever they might be, and the world in which we live (one sadly veering toward conflict rather than peace).

Available as paperback or download pdf.

New Bible Study:  'Fruit of the Spirit'

 Everyday Prayers

‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control...'

These words of Paul from his letter to the Galatians will be familiar to most Christians, though perhaps not the context and the impact they would have had at the time. These four studies look at the fruit that Paul talks of, and how its various aspects might impact on our lives.
