Daily Bible Reading/Study

We firmly believe that we should read and study the Bible because it is God’s Word to us (2 Timothy 3:16). The Bible plays a central role in our church services, prayer meetings, house groups and Bible study groups and we seek to encourage each other to learn, love and apply it at every opportunity.
 

How and when, we can best do this will very much depend on our individual circumstances; it will require discipline at times  but this short video clip reminds us that wherever we are, whenever we can, we should open up the Bible:

Bible Reading Plans

Following a Bible Reading Plan is a great way to develop a growing awareness of what the whole Word of God is saying to us. It builds year-by-year and it’s amazing that we learn and notice new things as we read passages that we are becoming increasingly familiar with, again and again! We will come to Bible Study below, but the best approach to a Bible Reading Plan, is to select your time and place, pray and simply read the passages allocated letting the Word of God speak for itself and then pray & reflect on it. There is a further advantage in having a church or family Bible Reading Plan because as we share the same passage each day, God can speak to us as a body of people. At Trinity we have followed different Bible Reading Plans over the last few years and have found the variation helpful, with different plans suiting different people and their varied circumstances or familiarity with the Bible.
