Bible Month
Walt Disney gave us Pinocchio. Herman Melville gave us Moby Dick. The Old Testament gives us Jonah who, a bit like Pinocchio, has to be taught a lesson. Although there is humour in this absurd story, there is little to laugh about. Jonah is as obsessed as Captain Ahab; not with the whale but with his own brand of religion.

The Revd Tom Stuckey, from his Introduction to Jonah in the Bible Month Magazine 2018

You can follow the weeks of teaching within our churches by going to the service search on the home page and looking for the heading "Jonah" and the week that appertains to that church .
