Big Bible Read finale in Cathedral

clip_image002Bishop David’s Bible Challenge to read right Round the Bible in the 40 days of Lent reaches its climax on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter.

At 10am a team led by Ridley Hall students Charlotte and Lesley Ann will start on the last day’s challenge with a public reading of the last books of the Bible in the Lady Chapel of Ely Cathedral.

Then at 12.30 there will be a celebratory half-hour service which will include a reading of the last two chapters of Revelation in which everyone can take part. After the service there will be a chance to meet and chart informally, and share stories of how the Challenge has gone for you.

About 1000 people are thought to have been taking part in “RTB40”, right across the country, even using Facebook, Twitter and Skype to keep in touch. Bishop David himself has been marking the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible by reading from that – from both his old christening Bible but on a Kindle too!

Everyone is very welcome to join in these finale events on 23rd April, and you can come and take part for as much time or as little as you can spare.
