We have been encouraging you over the last 6 weeks to engage with personal Bible study, and we have offered suggestions about gathering to study together. Folk have not seemed to pick up on this, so as a trial without asking too much of a commitment it would be good if as a whole church we could try and engage with a 4 day study together starting this Wednesday 29th April (if you missed the start date you can still pick it up).
Why study together? It is good to encourage each other as to where we are individually after 6 weeks of lock down. The study, Gospel Driven Work In The COVID-19 Crisis seems like a good place to start, and depending on how quickly you read (or have it read to you via their reader) it should take about 10-15 minutes to do.

We will use the YouVersion Bible app and the Bible.com website to study together as this seems to be the most accessible platform for everyone.
- If you already familiar with the app and have it installed, please follow this link to the current invitation.
- If this is new to you and you want to use this on a mobile device, please see the video Jazmine has put together below to show you how easy it is to use. You will need to download the YouVersion app, go to this link https://www.bible.com/ and on this page are quick links for your device, and a facility to send a message to your phones to make everything easy – don’t forget to watch the video below.
- If using a computer, please use this link https://tinyurl.com/LWBC-GD-4day it works in a really similar way to the video below, but allows you to do it on your computer. If you have not created an account yet, you will need to do this so people know who you are and are able to interact with you.
The idea of studying together via this platform is that you can share your thoughts at the end of each study session with each other and receive notification of when others leave comments. It also allows total flexibility for all to engage without having to set specific times aside which might not work for everyone.
Please can we encourage you to take part in this 4 day study together.
