Northampton Study Weekends 2019

Module: Galatians (NEW09)

“The dangers of legalism are never far away and always to be opposed. This module examines the text of this letter in light of its first century context and draws some important lessons from it for today.”

Dates: 15th-16th March and 12th to 13th April 2019

Please see below for times.

We are delighted to be back at Northampton this Spring for another round of Study Weekends. These have always been popular with local believers, and classes are open to all who wish to join us. All sessions will be held at:

Study Weekends

Our Study Weekends are excellent opportunities for students of Jesus to immerse themselves in periods of intense Bible study focusing on particular sections of Scripture. In addition to the classroom experience, there is also opportunity to complete additional assignments to fulfil the Module requirements for the British Bible School Applied Biblical Studies curriculum.

Your teachers for these weekends will be: Jon Galloway and Jack Paton, both of whom have invested much time in this letter and in the New Testament text in general.

Lunch on Saturday and light refreshments will be provided. Students are asked to make a voluntary contribution of £10 (or more!) each weekend to help cover our costs. Thank you.
