An exciting new course for our Pastoral Area is coming early in 2022.

It is called “THE BIG PICTURE” and commences via Zoom on Monday 10 January from 7.30pm – 9.00pm. The subtitle of The Big Picture is “You, the Bible and God’s Big Plan” – The course will cover 12 engaging sessions taking us through Salvation History, starting at the beginning with God the Creator right through to the End Times, with the Second Coming of Christ.

The course is inspiring and enjoyable and suitable for those new to Scripture as well as those with a deeper knowledge of the Bible. The Big Picture is not simply an academic journey through Scripture but a time of helping us make God’s Word alive and relevant to our daily lives. If you would like a little taster and get a feel for the Big Picture why not watch the trailer for the course using this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFlMZEgnsEM . Some people may have already been through this course when it ran in the Parish five or six years ago but hopefully all of us are now in a different point of our journey so there will be new insights for each of us.

Each participant will require their own copy of the excellent high quality hard back Big Picture journal which will not only provide you with the weekly Bible Reflections and an overview of the topic but also a TV quality DVD. This will enable you to revisit the weekly material if you wish, but also catch up if you have to miss a session. We will order the journal on your behalf and ensure it is with you before the course starts. This is one reason why we would ask you to register for the course as soon as possible – PLEASE. The cost of the journal and DVD will be £10, which we will collect from you when we hand the journal over to you.

Registering for the course could not be simpler. All we ask is that you email our course co-ordinator This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your “YES” as soon as possible please. We also need to know your Parish if you are from St Bede’s, Holy Ghost, Sacred Heart, St Josephs or St Michael’s and St Oswald’s. If you are not from one of these please include your postal address in your reply. When we hear from you, we will then order your journal and get it to you in early in the New Year in advance of the course starting.

Any questions? then please do not hesitate to contact us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 01256 541052.

So why not make joining with others on this exciting journey your New Year’s resolution and take another step to deepen your faith.
