Bible Week begins

‘Don’t miss this moment’ is the theme for Bible Week 2020 in Belfast Cathedral and online. Our speaker over four nights, starting Tuesday 1 September, is Peter Lynas, Evangelical Alliance UK Director.

We’re going to explore through scripture, the challenges and opportunities facing the church in this unique moment. Don’t miss this moment and don’t miss Bible Week 2020 as we worship together and think biblically about the future.

Tuesday 1 – Friday 4 September at 7.45 pm in Belfast Cathedral and online.

The event will be live-streamed but there are a limited number of places available in the cathedral on each night. (The diocese will observe the guidelines around gathering indoors for worship so please keep an eye on the Diocesan website and social media channels for further details.)

‘Don’t miss this moment’ as we worship together and explore, through the Book of Colossians, the challenges and opportunities facing the church in this unique moment.
