Down & Dromore Bible Week 2017

Please join us for our 11th Annual Bible Week from Tuesday 29 August – Friday 1 September 2017 with Bishop Greg Venables.

Taking the title, Accept No Imitations, Bishop Greg will teach in Romans 5–8 and explore some of the passages which inspired the Reformation.

The venue is Shankill Parish Church, Lurgan, and we will begin each evening at 7.45 pm.

Bishop Greg Venables

Greg Venables is much in demand as a Bible teacher and is a leading theological conservative in global Anglicanism. He and his wife Sylvia have been missionaries in South America for almost 40 years.

Born and raised in England, Greg was a computer systems officer and a school teacher before beginning his ordained ministry in 1984 and serving with the Anglican Church in Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina. He was headmaster of St Andrew’s College, Asuncion, from 1978 until 1989 and was ordained to the episcopate in 1993 when he became the Auxiliary Bishop of Peru and Bolivia.

Greg served as the Primate of the Southern Cone in South America from 2001 until 2010 and has been diocesan bishop of Southern Argentina since 2002.

He and Sylvia have been married since 1970 and they have one son, two daughters and seven grandchildren.

About

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!
