In addition to our long-standing teaching and training programmes, we are offering an increasing number of activities online – open to all with means of access. All this has essentially been made feasible through a general acceptance and growing familiarity with online conferencing. We offer:
- two weekly Online Bible Classes
- a weekly thought: ‘Something to think about’
- a monthly Friday Evening Quiz to provide some light-hearted, educational entertainment
- bi-monthly Saturday Evening Lectures Online on a variety of subjects. See here.
Our weekly Online Bible Classes
Our Online Bible Classes are open to anyone who wants to be a part of a live, online class, and who has access to a computer or similar object. You are free to be a part of whichever and however many classes you may choose. No enrolment or registration is necessary. Classes begin at 8 o’clock and access is generally provided up to 15 minutes before the hour. The links below will take you to the online Waiting Room from where you will be given access.
Where can I access these sessions?
Unlike our weekly thoughts: ‘Something to think about’ which we are continuing to host on YouTube, we’re hosting these classes on Zoom. You may want to download the Zoom client or app – you shouldn’t have to, but it would improve the experience if you did. Please find the schedule below. Clicking on the image or title should bring you to the relevant Zoom session. Thank you.
If you need help in accessing and using Zoom, please click here.

We have decided to record live online classroom sessions so as to make them available to those who wish to catch up or review the material presented in the classes. These will be available here.
Class schedule for twelve weeks from 26th June 2023
Much has been said by many writers over the centuries to aid the followers of Jesus in coming to a fuller understanding and faith in God’s Messiah. In these classes we shall be concerned with a particular aspect of the Letter, one which should be the focus of all study of Romans, and indeed of all Scripture, our participation “in Christ,” especially in his death and resurrection which is the central dimension of Paul’s theology. Throughout the study we shall carefully read related themes such as holiness, justice, peace and, most importantly, life.

When God’s people forsake him he views it as adultery – spiritual adultery. That this happens is nothing new. Hosea was called to bring God’s message to the northern kingdom of Israel in an effort to get them to come back to him.
God’s love for his people is depicted through Hosea loving his unfaithful wife. Their children illustrate God’s reaction to his people leaving him for idols. Although written to God’s people thousands of years ago, the message is applicable to followers of Christ today.

Class schedule for twelve weeks from 21st September 2023
The three prophets Amos, Joel, and Obadiah proclaimed the coming of the day of the Lord for Israel, Judah, and Edom. What message did these prophets have for the people of their day? What were the political, social, and religious conditions of the time which made it necessary for the Lord to announce a coming judgement upon these nations? What relevance do their messages have for us today? You are invited to jon us on Monday evenings as we examine these interesting texts.

The story of how the Scriptures came from the mouth of God to the pages of our Bibles today is fascinating and, at times, most perplexing. In this brief summary we will look at the concepts of revelation, exhalation, collation, recognition, transmission and translation. In other words, we will consider each stage of the process and highlight significant events and developments along the way.
Be prepared to meet some jolly interesting people along the way as we attempt to go back in time to when God first spoke the words we read today.

Some light-hearted, educational, entertainment! This really is for everyone – nothing too testing (promise!). You might want to have a pen and paper handy – plus a box of choccies to award yourself if you happen to win – or even if you don’t. We’d love to present these personally, but under the circumstances …
For the current period we will hold this every first Friday of the month.
