The Centre for Bible, Ethics and Theology aims to equip local communities to engage effectively with the Bible. Drawing on our expertise, we offer a set of resources to help you read, understand and discuss biblical texts and their relevance to current ethical issues.

From Genesis to Revelation, there’s something for everyone, touching on all things Bible related. We’d love to hear about the creative ways you’ve used these resources and we’re always pursuing ways to improve this collection, so please get in touch with any suggestions.
