Audio talks: We have a huge archive of audio-talks on CD and we are working towards digitising these so they are available to download.
Hold your own series of Scripture Saturdays - we can help you set up as a Catholic Bible School in your area.
For churches we offer the option of a workshop style day. Over the course of a Saturday or Sunday we can lead a series of workshops targeting different groups of people all based on developing skills and knowledge about the Bible. Each workshop lasts for one hour, and depending on your timetable we can do as many as you can fit in. We charge £75 per workshop plus travel expenses. If you have two spaces to host workshops we could lead some workshops simultaneously if that was appropriate. Please get in touch with us (email is best in the first instance) if you would like to know more.
The workshops we currently provide are:
