Apart from the Sunday School and the preaching at the Mass, there are several learning opportunities available to people at St Andrew’s. A Bible Study group meets regularly led by two of the lay readers. We have a regular attendance of eight members.
The Pathways Learning Platform (PLP) has been developed to provide accessible and flexible opportunities to learn on your own and with others.
You may need to fit your learning around your family or a caring role, combine with a job or work around your ministry commitments.
You may be embarking on a journey towards new ministry or leadership, exploring ways of living out your faith in the community or parish where you live or considering how you can serve as a follower of Jesus.
You may find it better to learn from home or you may want to learn with others either virtually or gathered in person, to reflect personally or with friends.
However you learn best and wherever God has called you, we hope that Pathways provides an opportunity for you to explore your gifts and ministry.
Many people from St Andrew’s have joined these groups along with people from other parishes, while others have studied elsewhere.
A new diocesan initiative is currently being prepared called the Way of Discipleship to start in September 2020. Other study opportunities are also in development by the diocese from which St Andrew’s hopes to benefit.
