Study in Bemerton Parish

Spirituality Book Club

We recently completed our study of ‘Naked Spirituality’ by Brian D. McLaren and will soon announce the next book we will be reading.

Living in Love and Faith is a course we will run from end May to June and in September and early October. All material is available for free on The Church of England website or you can buy the course book from Church House Publishing. You can find out what the course is about by clicking here. Please contact Kevin at rector.bemerton@protonmail.com to let him know you would like to join a group and he’ll send you a Zoom link.

We are hoping and praying that people who have maybe felt rejected by the church because of fundamentally who they are will join in these study groups. We want to hear your story and we want to make it clear that you are very welcome in Bemerton Parish for who you are.

We also warmly welcome teachers to get in touch if you would like to have the course adapted to help you experience the wider picture of church teaching and belief when you are teaching ‘what Christians believe’ to your students. It would be great to have you join as part of our regular study groups.
