Please feel free to download and use these Bible studies from the URC's Mission Council

May 2019: Listening to God speaking to us

Three reflections from the Revd Neil Thorogood, outgoing Principal of Westminster College, Cambridge.

In his first Bible study (all of which used images from German Catholic priest and artist Sieger Köder (1925-2015)), Neil encouraged Mission Council to explore how the place of worship can be strengthened, saying: "Worship is one of the most profound ways we have of offering ourselves into the presence of God ... Worship creates and sustains the Church ... opening ourselves up to the word of light."

November 2018: Joy, humility and perseverance

These three Bible studies from the Revd Dr Susan Durber, a URC minister in Taunton, focussed on three key virtues or gifts.

Using Paul’s letter to the Philippians, Susan explored the qualities that we might seek to nurture and encourage in ourselves and one another; key characteristics of Christian life; things at the heart of Christian vocation; all things that we need to ask God to nourish within us, especially when life is hard and challenging.
