In this section you can find more spiritual journeys exploring the gift of hearing. Some of the journeys carry on from material in Sense Making Faith. There is also material on the bible readings which are used Sunday by Sunday in Church of England and Roman Catholic churches.

Inside, hollowness; what is

comes to me as a blow, but not

a wound

Archbishop Rowan Williams


Listening to the Bible

Find reading the Bible hard going? Ever wished you could listen to the scriptures being read to you, other than in bits in church? Poirot actor David Suchet has spent over 200 hours recording the complete Bible.

The recording is in the New International Version and runs for 80 hours on 6 MP3 CDs. More details at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Audio-Bible-International-Version/dp/1444786407

About nChant

Since 2003, this young women's choir with ages ranging from 14 - 40 has explored a contemporary approach to medieval music inspired by the work of contemporary & medieval ensembles such as 'Medieval Babes', Sarband, and Sequentia. But it is not just about the music. We seek to become an informal & supportive community, exploring our own spiritual journeys through contemporary & ancient songs & rituals, and encouraging an open, questioning and questing approach to spirituality.
