Bible Study

Saint Jude's Bible Studies promote an appreciation of reading the Bible and understanding how Bible readings can be applied to our daily life. Everyone is welcome, wherever you are on your spiritual journey.  Bible Study classes have no prerequisites. The Bible has been a powerful influence in the lives of countless people. Every Bible Story is a metaphor for the experiences of God we have all had and will have in our lives. St Jude’s offers four adult Bible Study classes.
