E100 – BIBLE READING PLAN

Your journey through God's Word

The Essential 100 Challenge (The E100) is an effective Bible reading program built around 100 carefully selected short Bible passages — 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament. It enables people to get the big picture of God's Word and in the process develop a daily Bible reading habit.

In 2016, we undertook the E100 Challenge together as a church. Over the course of 20 weeks, our preaching series "God's Masterplan" focussed upon these readings. You can use the list here on our website, or purchase the phone app from your app store (Android | iOS).
