Bible Study

Bible studies are a great way to learn about the Christian faith, to grow and live as a Christian, and to share our faith.

Our weekly Bible Study Group meets after the Sunday 10.00am Sung Eucharist. Studies also occasionally meet via Zoom at different times. If you are interested to join the study via Zoom, please get in touch with Canon Jane Window: jwindow@stpaulscathedral.org.au.

All are welcome to join the studies, no prior knowledge is required. If you own a Bible we encourage you to bring that with you – other materials are provided below and in hard copy on the day.

New Series • Healing God’s Creation

Sermon Series: Sundays 4.00pm in May & June
Bible Study: Sundays at 11.45am in the Cathedral’s Education & Ministry Centre

The Creationtide Series in 2021 focussed on the challenges that God’s creation faces as a result of the way that humankind has treated the world in which we live.

This new series will take us into what is required for the earth to be healed. How can we as God’s children better care for his creation in the way that he intended, halting the deterioration that has occurred due to the actions of humankind and enabling healing and restoration of it. What is the attitude and action that God desires that will enable us to give him glory and care for his creation?

For this series, Canon Glenn Loughrey will create some artwork during each service to enable members of the congregation to engage visually as well as audibly with the readings and sermon.

There will be a Bible study series after the 10am services during May and June which pick up on this sermon series. To enhance the engagement of the members of the congregation attending the Bible studies, it would be helpful for them to hear the sermons. We do not livestream evensongs, however, we are planning on videoing the sermons in this series and they will be placed on YouTube.

Sunday 1 May • Creation
God created the world and saw that it was good. What does God’s creation tell us about God’s character, the sinfulness of mankind, and how to honour God?

The readings were Ps 96, Job 12.7-10 and Romans 1.18-23

Sunday 8 May • Daily Bread
We are granted fullness of life, not excess. God provides for our daily needs. Our society individualistic, materialistic and consumerist society pushes for us to continually want more. How do we live according to our needs rather than our greedy worldly desires?
