Bible & Book Study Series
These series offer a methodical deep dive into scripture, or other books aimed at enriching the practice of Christian faith.

October 4 to December 6 |  Anglicanism 101 | 6pm to 7:30pm online with some in-person sessions.

The Rev. Adam Dawkins offers this course on the fundamentals of the Anglican tradition. This is suitable for newcomers, long-time Anglicans and those who want to prepare for baptism or marriage. It is recommended participants acquire a copy of The Book of Alternative Services and To Love And Serve: Anglican Beliefs and Practices.

PLEASE NOTE: Some sessions may take place in person at Christ Church Cathedral. Dates & times to be determined based on the availability of the group.

October 5 - ongoing | The Upper Zoom: The Book of Amos | 6pm to 7:30pm online

The Rev. Adam Dawkins facilitates a deep dive into the Book of Amos. A millennium ago when Amos wrote his book, affluence, exploitation and profit were the defining features of society, as was an enormous disparity between rich and poor. Religion had become focused on beauty rather than God’s word, and civic leadership was about power rather than serving the people. This gave Amos reason to preach, and it gives us reason to study his words today.
