Centre for Encountering the Bible

Opportunities to read, explore, discuss and interpret biblical texts and their ancient contexts from diverse perspectives.

We want to read and interpret the bible for many different reasons: not only for historical information, moral guidance or spiritual wisdom but also to encounter each other and God and for the sheer pleasure of it. We want to read and interpret the bible for many different contexts: not only of Christian church but also in the context of political questions and contemporary culture. We want to read and interpret the bible from many different angles: not only liberal and conservative but also secular and interfaith.
