We want to be a community that encourages one another in Scripture.
So often, with the busyness of life it can be easy to feel ashamed for ‘not keeping up’ with a reading plan. Can we give you permission to not be ashamed?! Below we have some reading plans for everyone – some are sizeable chunks of Scripture, others are more bitesize.

Tips for enjoying Scripture
Quality, not quantity
The Bible is meditation literature. This means it’s meant to make us think, not just consume information (which is primarily how we’re taught to read in the ‘modern west’). As we meditate and reflect, it changes us. So, if you need to, take your time. Reflect. Enjoy.
Not a reader?
Fear not! For the first 1,500 years of the church, most Christians we unable to read Scripture for a few reasons. You can download the FREE Bible App and have Scripture read to you each day. We love the NIV read by David Suchet. Silky!
Doesn't make sense?
We’d encourage you to try the Read Scripture app. It includes super helpful videos by the Bible Project (whom we love!). You have a piece of daily reading interspersed with those videos.
Read in community
The Bible was originally, almost exclusively read as a communal activity. Why not find 2-3 people of the same sex and form a ‘Huddle’ where you can read together, support one another and share your lives together?
Want to go deeper?
There is a ton of great content you’ll find on the web. Podcasts, apps etc. Remember, don’t replace your local church with a podcast or app! But, we would recommend the Bible Project if you want to go deeper with Scripture.
There are a variety of Bible apps with various Bible reading plans. Here are just a few of our favourites.
