Over at the Scripture Engagement website Richard Margetts has posted a free training guide for leaders and promoters of Bible listening groups. Here’s a little bit of blurb and a link to the post. It would be fascinating to consider how this practice could be used in a UK setting. Have you seen this done?
The training workshop described in this guide was developed in West Africa and includes input received from around the world. It is for listening group leaders (those who lead/facilitate the groups) and for group promoters (those who visit groups to encourage them and mentor the facilitators).
A listening group is an opportunity for people to get together to listen to a passage from the Bible and talk about it together. In this guide, you’ll find elements which focus on the ‘why’ of listening groups as well as the practical details of ‘how’ to lead a group.
