God on TV is a new series of small-group courses to help churches engage people in Bible study and theological reflection on moral and ethical themes. Each book uses some of the themes raised by a popular television series as a springboard for group discussion, prayer and Lectio Divina Bible reading. It is not essential for group members to have seen the television programme, but it will provide useful food for thought for those that have.Over six weeks, the course presented in All of Life will explore themes of Liturgy and Prayer, Disability, Attitudes to and Experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic People, Attitudes to and Experiences of LGBTQ People, Vocation and Calling, and Celebrations and Community.
