Advent Course

Exploring the Beatitudes

A Three Session Course

An Advent Course in three sessions, based on the text and inspiration of Bishop of Oxford, the Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft. The text for the course has been written by Bishop Steven.


 Bishop Steven said: ‘I’m hoping churches will use this specially written resource to help them study and understand the Beatitudes. For me the Beatitudes have eight beautiful qualities, but eight is quite a lot to remember so I’ve been keen to capture what they mean in three words: contemplative, compassionate and courageous.


‘I want people to be asking what do these words teach us and tell us about Jesus, what do they tell us about being human in the 21st century and what do they tell us about what kind of Church we’re called to be.’


Where: Olney Church Hall
When: 30 Nov, 7 Dec, 14 Dec
