News Bits

The Library will be closed at 12noon on 23rd & 30th May so that the Library staff can prepare for the public lecture by Prof. Alister McGrath and our Convocation & Thanksgiving Service respectively.

BGST Bookshop has 4 paintings from PaintThru Gallery. Three of these are on sale at special discount to celebrate PaintThru 4th anniversary. These are original oils by Chinese artists. The Biblical art represents the artist's understanding of the Bible content. The contemporary scenes are often accessible only to local eyes.
