St Mary Magdalene, Stoke Bishop
From 1991-2007 I was a member of St Mary Magdalene Church an Anglican church serving the parish of Stoke Bishop, Bristol. I was a licensed Reader for the parish although most of my ministry was in WEMTC.
Bible Studies
As part of my ministry at St Mary's I wrote in 2002 and 2003 a series of House Groups studies, portions of which are placed here. St Mary's ran a monthly House Group system involving 3 studies per term. As a result the studies are broader and more superficial than is perhaps ideal. Dividing the studies up and spreading them over a longer period is recommended. I am happy for other bible study groups to download* and use this material (which is not fully complete) but I am not able to offer any support. The studies are best used as a launching pad for devising your own studies. The studies were:

Mark's Gospel - studies for September, October, November 2003

Revelation - studies for May, June, July 2003.

Corinthians - studies for January, February, March 2003

Amos - studies for September, October, November 2002

These studies have been influenced by 2 books:
Weber, Hans-Reudi Experiments in Bible Study WCC
Wink, Walter Transforming Bible Studies
Old Testament Courses
I have available and, time permitting, am happy to run a 4 or 5 week Introduction to the Old Testament Course for churches in Bristol. This has been run several times as a study course for around 12 people per session at St Mary Magdalene Stoke Bishop, once as a Lent Course for 20 at St Mary's Shirehampton. And once for St Margaret of Antioch, Durham

St Margaret of Antioch, Durham

At Easter 2008 I joined St Margaret of Antioch Church, Durham an ancient church, that had the advantage of being directly opposite my front door (so of course I was always last to arrive). For awhile I managed to keep a low profile, but it was a small congregation so it was only a matter of time....

... and time ran out in May 2009 when I was elected on to the PCC

In January 2010 I agreed to help organise a Medieval Fair for the 850th Anniversary Celebrations and in January 2011 I was licensed as a Reader.

St Andrews, Impington

I moved to Impington in September 2011 and joined St Andrew’s Impington - my probable parish church. No one seems to know where the boundaries lie. I am trying to say no to everything…
