The Kingdom of God is Near (Webinar)

Saturday, 28 November 2020, 9:30 am12:30 pm AEDT


Hosted by Trinity College Theological School

This half-day event is an opportunity for clergy and lay people to be enriched by the readings from Mark and elsewhere in the Bible for the forthcoming Church Year B.

For clergy, this is a study day, providing you with resources for preaching, worship and ministry, commencing on Advent Sunday. For lay people, this is a wonderful opportunity to explore the Bible, discover its riches and deepen your spirituality.

There will be plenty of opportunity for reflection, input and discussion.
