The Bible Reading Fellowshop (BRF)
The Bible Reading Fellowship’s goal is to encourage Christians to grow in their life of faith, prayer and spiritual formation and in their understanding of the Bible, whatever their starting point. To this end they publish a series of booklets called ‘New Daylight’. These are well produced and highly readable, ideal for occasional and /or bedtime reading.  

Matthew Fyfe has taken over from Dennis F who has administered our BRF distribution for the past 12 years. At present 29 members of our congregation receive these booklets which are published in December, April and September and the annual cost is £14.75.  If you are interested in joining the BRF please contact Matthew (contact details via the parish office or in the electronic or paper copies of the pew sheet)
