One of the more positive aspects of these past twelve months must be the familiarisation of the masses with the phenomenon of online conferencing facilities. Admittedly they may not be everybody’s cup of tea – nor even accessible to all – but they have enabled many to take part in activities which might otherwise have been prohibitive.
Take for example our Evening Lectures Online. Although a relatively new addition to our repertoire, these have already provided opportunities for many, from far afield, to enjoy presentations on more selective topics than might generally be available.
Then there is our Online Extension Programme which we launched in January and which has just now completed its first term. We had a full class of twelve students, actively engaged over a twelve week period studying one of our Introductory Modules: The Authority of Scripture. We are delighted that all these stayed the course, and a number are planning to undertake our next offering.
Speaking of which, there are still places available for our next twelve week study Module on Parables, being taught by John Griffiths for twelve weeks commencing 27th April 2021. If you are interested in being a part of this, then do please look at the details here or get in touch for further information.
Our Online Extension Programme is enabling students to engage in a more focused and structured course of study than is normally possible within a congregational setting. It is providing the opportunity for guided personal research through additional assignments that students are required to complete. Do look out for further details of other Modules we plan to be offering in the future.
Two new series
In addition to the above, we are continuing to hold our two regular evening Online Bible Classes each week. From 5th April we will be starting two new series, one on the book of Malachi with Mike Glover on Mondays and the other on the Gospel of Mark with Mark Hill on Thursdays. These classes begin at 8 o’clock and are held on Zoom. See here for details.
We are so very thankful for the continued support of and interest in the work of the British Bible School. Please watch this space for coming details of how you might be able to be a part of this work as we continue to help prepare others to teach the Word to all the world, wherever our world might be.
