Bishop’s Bible Week Rings The Changes

Upcoming Events

Added on 12/06/2014

Bishop Harold's Bible WeekThe Diocese of Down and Dromore’s annual Bishop’s Bible Week will see a couple of major changes this year. Most notable is the move from the end of August to the beginning of September (Monday 1 – Thursday 4) as we begin the new term focused on the Word of God.

Also in 2014, instead of having one speaker, Bishop Harold has invited a new generation of Bible teachers to share on each of the 4 nights. These younger teachers have been important in the work of Foundations, the diocesan programme for the discipling of young adults and will speak on the theme ‘A Dangerous Faith’. We look forward to welcoming even more young people to the event as we explore the biblical context, impact and dangerous meaning of the great commandments according to the Gospel of Mark.

Our speakers:

Simon Genoe, who has been working at Lisburn Cathedral since 2009, was born and bred in Monaghan and became a Christian aged 13 at a camp in Wicklow. He’s passionate about Liverpool Football Club, watching movies and being with his lovely wife Zara.

Andrew Brannigan directs the children’s, youth and families department in Down and Dromore. He has written resources on confirmation, youth leadership, family faith and most recently an ideas resource for churches to engage with community. He is married to Lynne and has 3 daughters.

Jasper Rutherford is commissioned as a Pioneer Evangelist with Church Army. His heart is to see people transformed by the love of Jesus and he has an expectancy and vision that this should be the norm. Jasper is married to Lynne and they have 3 children.

Craig Cooney leads St Catherine’s (formerly CORE), a church in inner–city Dublin which has experienced considerable growth in recent years. In his spare time Craig enjoys running, going to the gym, reading, and eating good food. He is married to Becky and they have a young son.

When: Monday 1 – Thursday 4 September at 7.45 pm
Venue: Willowfield Church, Belfast
