Advent Scripture Study: ‘Matthew’s Gospel for Living a Christian Life’
Corresponding with the beginning of a new liturgical year (Year A), the parish will be hosting a series of four sessions on Matthew’s Gospel just before and during Advent. The sessions will take place on Thursday evenings in the church hall, 7.30pm – 9.00pm (28 Nov, 5, 12, 19 Dec). Each session will be interactive, blending modern scholarship on Matthew with readings of particular passages by parishioners drawing on their own experience. The series will be facilitated by our own longstanding parishioner, Philip Esler, Portland Professor in New Testament Studies at the University of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham (and formerly Professor of Biblical Criticism in the University of St Andrews, 1992-2010). Please do put the dates in your diary. All welcome.
