The Bible in a day

Event details


Chester Cathedral Refectory, Abbey Square, Chester, CH1 2HU, United Kingdom


32 schools and churches from across Chester will be coming together to read the Bible in one day at Chester Cathedral. Together we will be reading The Bible from cover to cover. Well, almost! Our text will be Trevor Dennis’ The Book of Books. A family Bible he wrote while he was Vice Dean at Chester Cathedral, published by Lion Hudson in 2003. The Book of Books is a retelling of some of the finest stories and poems of the Bible. Informed by Trevor’s many years of teaching biblical studies and infused with his own love of storytelling and poetry. Representatives from local schools and churches along with members of the Chester Christian Aid Group and others will read passages from the book throughout the day in the Cathedral’s refectory. All are welcome to come and support. The money raised will help Christian Aid to change the lives of some of the world’s poorest people. Working in partnership with local communities to bring about long-term, sustainable change that really works. Help Christian Aid continue its vital work.
