bible study notes

Welcome to the bible study section of prayerscapes!


These free notes have been organised by theme, and can be used for individual or small group study. Each of the bible notes are presented with linking resources where available, such as soundtracks, instrumentals (for worship or response/prayer times), short films and art images (for reflection or meditation). The bible topic pages also contain links to downloadable and printable pdf versions. To the right can be found a summary of the resources available & links to each one.
