We have just come to the end of our spring series of Study Weekends, held in Aberdeen and Northampton over the past couple of months. These have provided more excellent opportunities for students to immerse themselves in some intensive structured study, with opportunity for further guided study beyond the classroom sessions.
Aberdeen hosted the Bible School for two weekends in February and March when we explored A Letter to Ephesus. Paul’s letter to these believers, with whom he had spent so much time, is a real treasure to be explored over and over, and one which never ceases to lift us to greater heights.
Though most who attend our Study Weekends tend to be from the immediate areas, it was encouraging to see a Peterhead contingent with us for both weekends too. Teaching was led by Patrick Boyns and Jon Galloway over a number of sessions from the Friday evening to the Saturday afternoon.
The congregation at Northampton have just hosted two weekends on the book of Hebrews. This somewhat enigmatic document contains so much of worth today – even within a context and a culture so different from that in which it was first written. If ever we might be tempted to turn back to our old lives, the writer urges us in so many ways to keep faithful to the one who quite simply can never be bettered. Teaching here was led by Patrick Boyns, John Griffiths and Steve Whitehead.
This is the first location where we have offered this module in recent times, and will no doubt be bringing it elsewhere over the next year or so. We are always looking out for new venues to host our Study Weekends, so if you you would like us to bring one to where you are, please do get in touch.
