CICC Cafe: Biblefresh Insights


Are you interested in discovering fresh skills to understand the Bible for yourself?  Have you heard a little about the Hebrew / Biblical worldview, and would like to delve into it in a bit more depth?  Would you love to be energised by the inspired literature of the Bible, and to discover how God has woven the text to entwine the linear truth and a prophetic revelation?  Have you experienced that ‘the letter kills’ but believe that ‘the Spirit gives life’? (2 Cor 3.6)

Well, this CICC Cafe is for you!

The Cafe will be run for 6 sessions in the first instance, on six alternate Sunday evenings, in the style of an interactive workshop.  Participants should leave each week with a sense of excitement over having personally engaged deeply in the text of scripture.

The six sessions will be:

  1. Glory to God – Speaking with tongues of angels! (Luke 2.14)
  2. The Lord is my Shepherd – Poetic analysis of Psalm 23
  3. Behold my Servant – Poetic analysis of Isaiah 53
  4. How does God write? – The Concept of Woven Text
  5. In the Beginning – An example of woven text
  6. Our Father in heaven – Woven text in the New Testament


Paul Hocking, who works for CICC and the Evangelical Alliance, will facilitate the sessions.  Paul has been studying and teaching the scriptures for over 40 years, with a particular love for the Hebrew scriptures, and has been studying the Torah with a devote Jewish academic for the last two years.

The sessions will be held in the beautiful Grade II listed building, The Gate Arts Centre, in the centre of Cardiff, and take place in the Cafe Bar area.  You should arrive any time from 8pm to purchase a drink and socialise with others, before getting down to action at 8.15pm.
