Bible Study Group
In January 1990 thirty to forty parishioners gathered together in No. 85 Iona Road with Fr. Kennedy as Chaplin for the first meeting of the Bible Study group. At that time the group met every Monday evening from 8.15pm to 9.30pm. To-day a smaller number 8-9 people meet every Monday afternoon in the Annex of No. 85 Iona Road at 3.15pm to 4.30pm.
During this time the bible study group read two chapters of the old testament which is then discussed by the group. Following a break for a cup of tea and a chat another two chapters are read this time from the new testament which is also discussed by the group. In the 19 years that the Bible Study Group has been in existence the Bible has been read a number of times with great enthusiasm and devotion. If you would like to come along and join us please contact the parish office for further information.
