Sharing God's Word

There are so many ways to share Gods' word together in this year. 

Here you can find some great creative ways to engage with the Bible

and to share it with others!

Subscribe below to hear more stories as soon as they are published. 

Bible Words

Deacon Martin McElroy from Winchester offers our diocese of Portsmouth a weekly series of articles and podcasts, taking a single word each week from the Sunday Scripture readings, and exploring the use of that word throughout the Bible.

Gospel Webinar

Journey through the gospel with others, every Wednesday at 7pm

Gospel Commentary

Each week, the Dominican Sisters of St Joseph in Lymington explain some aspects of the coming Sunday Gospel, using the four senses of Scripture.

Starting on the 25th March, join the Dominican Sisters of St Joseph online every day at 4 pm (except on Sundays) for 45 minutes of prayerful reflection on the Gospel of the Day.

Every day, one of the sisters will host the time of Lectio Divina, starting with prayer and the reading of the Gospel. Everyone will be invited to share their thoughts and inspirations during this time of teaching, fellowship and prayer.

Come and join the sisters, each day during this period of confinement, so that together we may listen to God who speaks to us in the Scripture, and shares with us his truth, love and very life.

Participants will be able to interact and share their own thoughts and prayers.

After the time of Lectio, join the sisters in prayer for the Rosary and Vespers,

which you can follow live here
