Big Bible Study

This year’s Big Bible Study will take place on the morning [10.00am -1.30pm] on Saturday,  1 October. The morning is one when, as Christians from across the traditions, we meet to worship together, to study the Bible together, and to eat together. This year’s theme will be When listening to God’s word becomes hearing God speaking. The Speaker will be The Revd Kenneth G Howcroft. Ken Howcroft is currently minister at Solihull Methodist and Coleshill United churches. He was the President of the Methodist Conference in 2014-15. He is a New testament scholar and theologian who at various times had previously been responsible for the Methodist Church’s theological education and formation in ministry;  its governance bodies; and its ecumenical relationships. From 2011-2014 he served the English-language Methodist congregation in Rome; and also established an ecumenical office in Rome on behalf of the world-wide family of Methodist churches.
