Talk on King James Bible

7 June 2024

On Friday, June 7, a capacity audience in Berwick Parish Centre heard Professor John Barton deliver a fascinating talk on the King James and other translations of The Bible. The talk had been arranged by Berwick Parish Church Trust in conjunction with the Berwick Literary Festival, as a contribution to the programme commemorating the 400th anniversary of Berwick Bridge John Barton, who was Professor of The Interpretation of Holy Scripture at Oxford University, had given his talk a lengthy title – “Authorised and Unauthorised Versions: Bridges or Barriers? The King James Bible and its Modern Successors” – but his relaxed delivery and interesting insights into the translators’ art kept his audience enthralled.

Finished ahead of schedule, our hidden solar panels and battery storage will be reducing our carbon footprint and making money within the next few weeks – as soon as the fire safe cupboard has been made around the batteries and inverter.

The church is grateful to local company Maden Eco for their swift and respectful execution of the work and extremely grateful to the following contributors for their funding:  the CoRE Legacy Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation, Benefact Trust, Aviva Community Fund and to the community of Berwick, parishioners and congregation, for their generous support.

The support and advice of the Newcastle Diocese, the Church Buildings Council and Northumberland County Council Planning Dept has also been highly valued.
