About the Bible Week

The Bible Week is four nights of Bible teaching, worship and ministry for the Diocese of Down and Dromore but anyone is welcome to come along and there is no charge.

The event is timed to bring encouragement from the Word of God as parishes prepare for the busy autumn term and is well supported. If you have never been, we would love to see you there!
