Bible Week Plus 2010

Share
Three people with recent first-hand experience of being ‘Christians In the Public Eye’ are due to be sharing their experiences at Weston Bible Week PLUS on 9th March.

One minute these people were just going about their daily job... the next, they were at the centre of a media frenzy... the common thread of interest being their Christian faith and their values and beliefs.  Tuesday night, 9th March provides an opportunity to find out about the stories behind three highly publicised events and to be inspired and learn from their experiences.

We will hear first hand from Caroline Petrie, a nurse who was suspended for offering to pray with a patient.  Then Corrine Brixton, a vicar from Essex who officiated for Jade Goody’s funeral and finally we shall hear from the Bishop of Bath and Wells, The Right Reverend Peter Price,  who completed a unique 330 mile walk around the diocese last year. They will be interviewed by the well known presenter Nick Page from Radio 2.

Keith Hallett, the event organiser said, ‘BIBLE Week PLUS takes the form of three consecutive open meetings, under the theme ‘Living in the Eye of the Storm’.   We aim to present and openly debate current issues and topics.  There’s no churchy stuff, no singing or prayers and the format is fairly informal.’

‘It’s simply a chance to come to a church and to learn about Christianity and what makes Christians tick.  For those who want to ask questions and engage in discussion, this is their opportunity, but others may just want to sit quietly and listen.  All will be most welcome!’

The second and third nights are particularly oriented to the wider community.  To present them, Bible Week PLUS welcomes Richard Hardy from Care for the family.  He’s been a speaker at a variety of events, conferences and training sessions as well as having a hands-on experience of Family Matters.  Richard will explore the relevance of timeless truths for those facing financial uncertainty and domestic pressures and who are looking to make the best of finances and Family life in the 21st Century.

Wednesday 10th March, the theme is ‘Weathering the Storm’.  Many households will be familiar with the pressures on domestic finance - pensions, debt, mortgages, rising costs, threats of redundancy and the need to work harder and longer just to keep up.  Richard will be looking at what the Bible says that might be able to help.

‘Walking the Tightrope’ is the theme for the third night and will be focusing on the challenge of balancing work and family life in an age where 50 and 60 hour weeks are becoming the norm.

Keith Hallett, Chairman of Weston Bible Week said, ‘We would warmly invite anyone with an interest in the issues being presented to join us.  Its not often that we get a chance to meet some of these people and to dialogue with them, and these evenings present just such an opportunity.’

All three evenings start at 7.30pm at Milton Baptist Church, Baytree Road, Weston-super-Mare.  Entry is free.

Refreshments will be served at the end. For further information about Weston Bible Week PLUS, please call Peter Lynch on Weston 521642
