The Learning Community

As part of its 1300 celebration year, Holy Trinity Westbury-on-Trym launched a new range of learning opportunities for adults (Church members and others) to help equip them for more effective Christian discipleship at work, in their personal relationships and in the community.

This very successful programme continues under the stewardship of Canon Bruce Saunders, with some thought-provoking events led by a variety of guest speakers.

With Dr David Firth, tutor in Old Testament Studies at Trinity College Bristol

The Psalms have played an essential part in Christian worship from earliest times. They framed the monastic day they are a characteristic part of Anglican morning and evening worship and of the Eucharist. Some of the most popular hymns are based on psalms. But the Psalms are and were originally part of Hebrew spirituality.

Dr David Firth, who teaches the Old Testament and has written on the Psalms, will explore their origin, their poetry and spirituality and how the Psalms continue to be a resource for contemporary Christian discipleship.
