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 Diocese has up to 2019-2020 offered a 30 week course called 3D – the Diocesan course for Developing Disciples. St Andrew’s has run or participated in the running of groups studying this course in the Handsworth group of churches over the last ten years.


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.
