Weekly Bible studies on ZOOM

Rev Dr Sandy Yule’s bible study series on the Letter to the Ephesians continues on Monday evening, September 6th. Sandy says: ‘This letter is as close to a distinctly ‘Uniting Church’ understanding of the gospel as we find in the Bible.’

The next meeting will focus on Ephesians chapter 3. It’s not too late to join.  

The series will go for six sessions total, Monday 7.30 pm – 8.30 pm.
