Bible Extra began life over 20 years ago. Every year, Rev Paul Davies delivered two short Bible teaching series on a Monday evening – four Mondays in May and four in October, hosted most recently at Cherry Burton Church. The aim was to provide something “extra” and a little deeper than can normally be fitted into an average Sunday morning service. Over the years, Bible Extra has drawn Christians from a variety of different churches across Hull and the East Riding.
In 2016 we added a monthly Sunday evening – Bible Extra Extra – to complement the May and October Series. This has been delivered by Rev Richard Bentley at Bodmin Road Church on Bransholme and is now in its 5th year.
The May and October Monday series stopped in 2018, and the Bible Extra baton has passed entirely to the monthly Sunday night programme at Bodmin Road, which Richard has continued to deliver. Last year’s series on Revelation drew between 50 and 60 people each month, from a dozen or more different churches.
Bible Extra continues to be overseen by a small committee. Please don’t hesitate to make contact if you have any questions.

A Bible Extra Sunday evening consists of two 45-minute seminars separated by a coffee break and rounded off with a hymn. More information about the approach and the dates for the year ahead can be found on the programme leaflet which is downloadable here.
