BRF (The Bible Reading Fellowship) is a Christian charity that started in January 1922 in an Anglican church in Brixton, where the vicar wanted to help his congregation, in his words, ‘to get a move on spiritually’. He began to offer a monthly leaflet of daily Bible readings, coupled with a midweek discussion group and the encouragement to pray for the parish. This so transformed the spiritual life of St Matthew’s Church that before long other churches were asking for copies of the leaflets for their own congregations.
Today, 90 years later, Bible Reading, Prayer & Spirituality and Discipleship are still the three core strands of BRF’s ministry, which as a whole is defined in their statement of purpose: ‘resourcing your spiritual journey’.
“At the heart of BRF’s ministry is the desire to help people of all ages – children, adults and families – to explore Christianity and to grow in faith. We’re passionate about helping people to engage with the Bible and prayer, and about resourcing Christian discipleship.”
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey – just starting out, or having been a Christian all your life – BRF has something to offer to help you go further and deeper.
