Weekday Scripture Readings

We are providing in St Matthew’s Mail magazine and on our website, a scheme of weekday scripture readings, one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. These are taken from the 'Additional Lectionary’ which was constructed by the Church of England principally for use in Cathedrals at weekday Evensong where there are many visitors. Typically the readings are more manageable, and we hope that this will be a good way into the discipline of opening and reading your Bible each day. Many of us do not read our Bible, if we have one, and this is a serious impediment to our growing in the Christian Faith and understanding. It would be a wonderful step forward in our discipleship if, as a dispersed community, we could embark on this daily adventure in the knowledge that others are doing the same – parishioners and the Church at large – and spend a little time prayerfully reflecting on what we have read.

If you need further guidance, or advice as to a reliable translation of the Bible, please speak with Fr Nicholas.
