'The Bible in a day'
Chester Cathedral 9th November 2017.

When Trevor Dennis was Vice-Dean of Chester Cathedral he wrote 'The Book of Books' as a children's/family Bible. It is a retelling of some of the finest stories and poems of the Bible, informed by Trevor's many years of Biblical studies and infused with his love of storytelling and poetry.

Trevor is now Chair of the Chester Christian Aid Committee and
he is planning the reading of the entire 'Book of Books' in a day as a fundraising event for Christian Aid. This will be done with the support of readers from 16 local schools, 16 local churches, other volunteers and recordings by Rowan Williams and Loretta Minghella, CEO of Christian Aid The event will take place in the Refectory of the Cathedral between 8am and 8.30pm on Thursday, 9th November, and each group taking part has agreed to raise at least £100 for Christian Aid.

Caldy Valley will be reading Luke's stories of the birth of Jesus from 3.55 — 4.15pm and a group from Saltney are planned to read stories from Jesus' ministry from 4.35-4.55.

Please come and support them, or call into the cathedral at any time during the day to hear other parts of Trevor's interpretation of the Bible. Donations to Christian Aid's work will be gratefully received.

Christian Aid — We believe in life before death.

Katy Rowe, Saltney, and member of Chester Christian Aid Committee
