Welcome

Welcome to the new
Mountjoy Bible School
website

Our 2019/2020 school year started at 7pm on Monday, 2nd September 2019. Sessions will normally be held once every two weeks and will run from 7 pm to 9 pm.

See below for our term calendars.

Our first term ended on Monday 9th December and our second term (The Spring Term) started at 7pm on Monday 20th January 2020.

The leaders at Ebenezer Evangelical Church have kindly agreed to the use of the church for our studies.


Structure of the 2019-2020 class

  1. A series of studies designed to interpret the Bible from a panoramic view to a detailed study of the text.
  2. To teach a rigorous methodology of how to study the Bible, to enable everyone who has the commitment to study it for themselves.

The Bible is a vast ocean of revelation from God and the study of it is inexhaustible, but every Christian can be encouraged and taught how to explore this ocean.

Full use will be made of Bible software programmes and visual aids. This web-site will be kept up to date with the study notes, recommended reading, word studies and similar resources. We plan to use a WhatsApp Group to keep all informed of the practical arrangements.
