The God who Speaks, 23-25 September 2021

In partnership with the Bible Society, this exciting initiative from the Catholic Church in England and Wales focuses on celebrating, living and sharing God’s word.

The Themes

Celebrating God’s Word – enriching our worshipping and spiritual community.

In discovering and renewing a genuine love for the word of God, we nurture our relationship with Christ. Through the Bible, we meet Christ who is alive in his word. We can listen to him speaking to us and guiding us in our daily lives.

Living God’s Word – enriching our social action and outreach

Scripture teaches us how to live in society, to respect the wonder of creation, especially each human being and to work towards the common good. The Scriptures inspire us to put faith into action, living God’s word and doing God’s word.

Sharing God’s Word – enriching our formation, proclamation and evangelisation

The Bible has inspired, and continues to inspire, learning, culture, art, music and literature. It enables science and faith to build up mutual understanding through dialogue. It challenges technology and social media to open up new ways to encounter and share Christ in the world.
