Bible-reading marathon

Have your say

A TEN-hour Bible reading marathon is scheduled for Tickhill Parish Church next week.

St Mary’s is the venue for the Bible Reading Day on Tuesday, from 10am to 8pm.

Children from St Mary’s and Estfeld primary schools get the special day under way with the story of the creation.

Readings will then take place throughout the day mostly in St Helena’s Chapel.

These will include passages from different parts of the Bible including the Old Testament greats like Noah, Joseph and David.

The church choir under leader John Marsden will be taking the Gospel of Luke and singing some parts, such as the Magnificat.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
