THE GOD WHO SPEAKS – A YEAR OF THE WORD

The Bishops of England and Wales have called for a Year of the Word under the title, ‘The God Who Speaks ’.   

God has spoken to human beings since the dawn of creation, but very few have listened as intently as they might!  

This Year will offer a wealth of ideas, resources and experiences for us to deepen (or create) our relationship with the God

who speaks to us through the Bible.
