The Learning Network is a national network to support learning within each local church. There are teams based in each region. Our region is the North East and more information about events and training can be found here.
What is Bible Month?
Bible Month is the opportunity for worship and small groups to focus on a whole book of the bible going deeper as we work through the text week by week. Bible Month 2019 focuses on the book of Colossians.
How can I get involved?
There will be resources to help preachers and group leaders, and for local learning and development to prepare for leading the month. These will be made available on the Learning Network website. Get in touch with Tricia for advice and support setting up Bible Month in your church or small group.
The Well Learning Hub
The Children, Youth and Family Team have launched The Well Learning Hub. This YouTube channel contains videos on a range of topics useful for children's, youth and family workers. There are also links, beneath some of the videos, to additional resources.
Current videos cover topics including spirituality in gaming, inter-generational worship, pastoral support for LGBT young people and digital well-being. More videos are being uploaded all the time, so it's worth checking back so you don't miss anything!

Lord, we pray for our leaders,
Our politicians and decision makers,
For those in positions of authority over us.
We ask that you grant them wisdom, compassion, courage and humility,
That you help them to work for reconciliation and peace,
And guide them, by your grace, to decisions that honour you and fulfil your purpose for us, your people. Amen
Lord, we pray for our region,
Our towns, cities and countryside,
For our communities and our churches.
We ask that you bless these places, and their people, with your love, grace, compassion and peace.
And help us, within our region, to come together to serve you and to live out our faith together. Amen
Lord, we pray for ourselves,
Our families and friends,
For those we love, and those who love us.
Watch over us, Lord, and our loved ones.
We ask that you grant us wisdom, compassion, courage and humility,
That you help us to care for those in need,
To forgive those who have hurt us,
And to love as we were taught to love by your son, Jesus Christ. Amen
