Events for March

Events.jpgEvents celebrating the anniversary of the King James Bible are piling up thick and fast. One we recommend in March is Writing on the Wall in Chelmsford and Barking. The event will be led by Maggi Dawn, author of The Writing on the Wall, who will show how art, music, poetry, sculpture and film have been influenced by the Bible far more than we usually realise.

Maggi will 'open up some of the theological and devotional adventures that become possible when the riches of the Bible are recognized within the world of the arts, and offer all kinds of inspiration, for teaching, preaching and personal spiritual growth.'

She will be appaearing at Chelmsford Cathedral Centre on March 26 (and later in the year, May 7, at St Margaret's Church, Barking). The events begin at 10am and the cost of the day is £15. For further information and booking details please contact Mrs Liz Watson on 01245 294449 or lwatson@chelmsford.anglican.org.

Bath Literature Festival will celebrate the anniversary with a continuous Bible reading challenge - and you can help. Due to start on Tuesday 1 March, a non-stop read of the King James Bible will continue day and night until Saturday 5 March. Taking place at St Michael's Without on Broad Street, the church will be open to all members of the public to participate and join a number of high profile readers, local celebrities and festival authors.

Volunteers can sign up for one hour slots throughout the period, during which they will take it turns to read for approximately 15 minutes. For those who feel they need any coaching before their reading, theatre director Hannah Drake will be on hand with professional tips and techniques - an opportunity to brush up on your skills for the Sunday morning service.

For more information, and to offer your services, send your name, email address and the dates you can make to kingjamesbible@bathfestivals.org.uk.

Elsewhere, the economic climate means there's no escaping the pressure of work, and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity has a course to help. Love@Work is aimed at helping Christians become better equipped as managers in the workplace wherever we fit in the hierarchy.

The evening will be led by Jill Garret, former European managing director of Gallup,  and starts at 6:30pm on 7 March.  Cost: £7 (£5 concessions). Contact mail@licc.org.uk or 02073 999 555.
