Welcome to a series of podcasts on the Acts of the Apostles. These 12 sessions offer an introduction to the Book of Acts, gently work through the whole work over 10 sessions, and then conclude with a summary and overview. Each session is accompanied by notes that summarise the material in each podcast and suggest points for personal reflection or group conversation.

There are a  couple of video resources which would help in the study of the Acts of the Apostles.

  • Ben Kingsley narrates the story of Paul according to Acts in this 59 minute video

  • Two excellent 9-minute animated videos from the Bible Project overview Acts 1- 12 and Acts 13-28.

In April 2020, Pope Francis was interviewed by the Tablet (the weekly UK Catholic journal) about the Church's response to the coronavirus. He spoke about the need to rethink ways of operating as a Church. Francis said,

 A  Church that is free is not an archaic Church, because freedom is God’s gift. An institutional Church means a Church institutionalised by the Holy Spirit. Attention between disorder and harmony—this is the Church that must come out of the crises. We have to learn to live in a Church that exists in the tension between harmony and disorder provoked by the Holy Spirit. If you ask me which book of theology can best help you understand this, it would be the Acts of the Apostles. There you will see how the Holy Spirit de-institutionalise what is no longer of use, and institutionalises the future of the Church that is the Church that needs to come part out of the crisis.
