Learning about our Faith

There are many ways to learn about the Christian faith, not only by coming to St Mary’s services, but by joining study and discussion groups in the local area. Details of courses and study sessions are detailed below.

Bible Study

The Autumn Study Course will be at 7.00pm on Tuesday evenings, 10, 17, 24 September, 1 and 8 October. The Group will be held at The Rectory in Stratford St Andrew (IP17 1LJ) and we would love to welcome you there, either to one or more of the sessions.
The Course is entitled ‘Living Honestly with the Psalms’. (Booklets £1.00 each).

Benefice Study Groups are usually held during Lent and Advent and use modern texts to encourage discussion and wider understanding about how the Gospel message may be seen in today’s world.
