Manchester Bible School – 5-week Evening Classes for Those with a Desire to Learn
Manchester Bible School aims to provide accessible courses equipping people with a deeper knowledge and practical applications of the Bible and theology in a context of fellowship. No previous academic qualifications are required – just a desire to learn. This is a great and affordable way to experience an introduction to further theological education.
The courses are suitable for Christians with a basic grounding in the faith, but who want to increase their knowledge of God’s Word to help them in their Christian lives and service. Some courses aim to introduce topics, while others will build on previous courses to deepen engagement with the topic.

Summer 2022 Courses
Understanding the Bible
An introduction to basic hermeneutics
Online, Monday 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th June and 4th July, 19:30-21:30
Course overview: This is an introductory course that will be delivered live via Zoom. It’s ideal for people who have some knowledge of the Bible – reading it in church and at home – but who want to go a bit deeper, to see the “big picture” of how it all holds together. We’ll look at the historical and literary backgrounds of the Bible as a whole and ask questions about inspiration and interpretation. “Hermeneutics” just means the way we interpret these ancient writings. And that provides the basis for the next phase – the tough bit! – where we learn to apply them to our lives.
Course leader: Revd Dr Ken Baker is a teaching pastor at Redcatch Community Church in Bristol. He is an enthusiastic and engaging communicator with a range of teaching and ministry experiences.
