The idea is that the passages listed in the programme are read before the meeting dates highlighted in yellow.  This provides the background to the meetings and enables the members to take part in the discussions about the bible passages.

There is a separate publication called Guidelines which can be read alongside the bible readings and provides helpful ideas to stimulate thinking about the readings.
