Studies in Living

We believe that Bible can teach us to become more Christ like. Throughout the year, at various times, we offer small groups where we can discover what the bible says to us and we can join together in our discipleship.
We encourage everyone to read the Bible daily. Many people find it helpful to use a study guide to aid their understanding. Some of our congregation use ‘With Love to the World’ as an aid to studying the scriptures systematically in their daily practice. If you would like to engage in this helpful discipline please contact the Secretary of ‘With Love to the World’ at wlwuca@bigpond.com.

We have been challenged to read the Bible cover to cover!

If you would like accept this challenge too, you may find this guide  helpful.

Bible-reading-program January-March

40 Days with Jesus is a Bible Reading Plan designed to lead you through the Bible on a journey to better understand Jesus. Each day in the plan includes a biblical reference to read, and some contemplation questions to ponder.
