End date

St Mark's, Buccleuch Street, Barrow-in-Furness, LA14 1BZ

This teaching day is part of our programme for ‘Growing Disciples’. Previous days have looked at the Gospel, The Bible, Prayer, Mission, The Church, the Kingdom of God, Evangelism, the Sermon on the Mount and The Old Testament, What is Discipleship?, Christian Lifestyle and What is Human?

This year Bishop James will continue the ‘What is…?’ series with an in depth look at ‘What is Church History?’.

‘What is Church History?’ will be offered in four locations (Barrow, Penrith, Workington and Carlisle).

Each day will last from 9-30 a.m. to 2-30 p.m. Its aim is to build confidence in the Christian faith, and it is intended to complement the teaching that already goes on so faithfully in our Parishes and Deaneries.

Everyone will be most welcome.
