The Bible Course

The next series for our Tuesday Bible Study online starts on Tuesday 2nd February, and runs for eight weeks, during February and March.

We are using The Bible Course, developed by the Bible Society who say:

An eight-session course helping you explore the BIG story.

Big, complex, old … just some of the words people use to describe the Bible.

Sound familiar? That’s where The Bible Course comes in.

The course will increase your confidence, equip you to read the Bible better and help you to see its relevance to daily life.

The course provides a birds-eye view of the world’s bestselling book.  

Over eight interactive sessions, it combines video teaching, group discussion, personal reflection and daily readings. 

All welcome.

You can also find out more on the Bible Society website.

Contact administrator@logies.org if you have any questions, or if you would like the Zoom details.

The Scottish Church Leaders Forum – Christmas video

The Scottish Church Leaders Forum has released a Christmas video.

Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair, Moderator of the General Assembly, is one of 10 figures who have each recited a line of a heartfelt message.

They decided to come together in recognition that many individuals and familes are grappling with difficulties and uncertainties due to the impact of COVID-19.

It is hoped that sharing the Good News about the birth of Jesus Christ will bring some comfort, hope and peace to those who are struggling.

The Scottish Church Leaders Forum was formed in March in response to the pandemic to speak on issues of mutual concern with one voice.
