The St Andrew’s Bible Study takes the form of Lectio Divina (meaning divine reading). This is a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer, intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of his Word. It does not treat scripture as texts to be studied but as the living word.
