Prayer, The Bible & Podcasts

A BIBLE READING PLAN

If you begin this plan, on January 1st and read four chapters a day (about 20 minutes worth of reading every day) by the end of the year, you will have read the complete Bible.

Do this for a year or two and you'll be amazed at how much you'll remember of it.

A SHORT DAILY BIBLE READING AND MEDITATION


 FILM  & FAITH EVENINGS

If it's been a while since you've read your Bible but you would still like to learn a little more about how the Christian faith works, then perhaps a short Film & Faith course would be something you would enjoy.

We watch a film together one week and in the following weeks, we look at some of the themes used in the film to enrich our faith. Some of the films we have looked at in the past include: Bruce Almighty, The King's Speech, The Boy in the Spriped Pajamas.   

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, why not give Rev'd Vince Fenton a ring?

 PRAYER

Prayer for the Christian is as important as breathing, yet often it's something that does not come easily. Perhaps for this reason, generations of Christians have found saying set prayers for the day so useful. This is something you may already do but if not, do think about trying it.

You never know, it may even become a habit!

 A DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Of course you can pray wherever you are, so perhaps you might like to think about subscribing to a free daily prayer podcast. The following link will take you to such a site. Each week you can download daily, 10 minute reflections that include music, a bible reading and a prayerful meditation to ponder upon.

If a complete daily liturgy or Service is more to your liking, then you will find some links below which will take you to such services. You can choose either Common Worship or Book of Common Prayer, depending on what language you feel comfortable with. You may decide to choose the Common Worship services for their use of modern language or the Book of Common Prayer services for their more traditional language. 

For those of you who are methodical, here is a site that gives a Cycle of Intercessions
