Bishops Bible Challenge

It is believed to be the first initiative of its kind in this format in the Church of England. 
The aim of the ‘Bishop’s Bible Challenge’ is to encourage children to explore and respond to the Gospel of Luke.
Using a ‘Challenge Pack’ the children must complete eight activities over the next 8 months.
For each completed activity, a sticker will be awarded which will make up part of a bigger picture created especially for the initiative by artist Si Smith.
All eight activities will be available online and to download via the Diocesan Board of Education’s website and all eight need to be completed to reveal the whole illustrated image. There are also extra tasks available online to help children discover more about the Gospel stories. 
The children who complete all eight activities will be presented with a special Bishop’s Bible Challenge Certificate before the end of the summer term in 2017.
Speaking about his Challenge Bishop Geoff said: “I want to encourage children to enjoy reading the greatest book in the world – The Bible. It is important for people of all ages to love the word of God if they are to grow in Christian discipleship.
“This fantastic initiative for young people in our church primary schools will help them to engage with The Bible in a brand new way and I am grateful to staff in the Diocesan Board of Education who have helped develop the challenge with me.”

Does Britain Need A New Centre Party?

The June referendum did more than commit us to leave the EU, it also exposed the divisions in our two biggest parties. The divisions in the Labour party were already apparent but Jeremy Corbyn’s weak leadership in the Remain campaign triggered a massive vote of no confidence in him. His re-election by party members has solved nothing. Labour has lurched to the left and potentially alienated itself from much of its heartland support who voted to quit the EU.
