Favourite Bible verse

IT’S OFFICIAL: Spalding church-goers’ favourite bible verse is John 3:16, according to an survey conducted as part of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

That verse heads the list of favourites, compiled by Churches Together in Spalding, with contributions from members of church congregations as well as other locations around the town where collection boxes were held.

The results of the survey were meant to be displayed at Party in the Park, which was cancelled because of bad weather, but the other nominated verses were Romans 8:38,39; 1 Corinthians 13:12,13; Micah 6:8; Jeremiah 29:11; John 13:34; Psalm 139:13,14; Psalm 46:10; Matthew 28:19,20; and Josuah 1:9.

The display, with comments from people about what these verses mean to them, can be seen at Broad Street Methodist Church on Tuesdays from 10am to noon for the next few weeks.
