KYB uses a question and answer learning method, reinforced by group discussion, summaries and review notes. We produce four KYB study books each year, one for each term. Study Books for terms 1, 2 and 3 have nine units, and Study Book for Term 4 has five units. Each unit is broken down into daily Bible readings with questions to answer, which are completed during the week before the meeting.
Local contact Phone Leslie on 02 4472 7058. When the KYB group meets, the Leader introduces the unit. The members then divide into discussion groups to share and discuss their answers to the questions. This is followed by the Leader giving a summary of the study. The members then read the review notes at home.

Going … making disciples … baptising … teaching
Here you can read all about us, from the first prophetic word given in 1978, through previous missions, to the current SOMA Australia Committee.
The aim of the Anglican Renewal Network Australia (ARNA) is to raise up a fresh network of Anglicans who are interested in the pursuit of a charismatic spirit empowered ministry for the sake of the Kingdom.
The Parish of Batemans Bay is a member and active supporter of ARNA. This is a 2020 initiative, coordinated initially by SOMA Australia, to connected Anglicans with a heart to share with a Kingdom focus on the salvation of souls and transforming lives. This we know can only be brought about through the grace of God – God’s empowering presence – by his Holy Spirit.
ARNA seeks to build on a rich heritage of the Anglican Renewal Movement in Australia which coordinated an effective ministry of encouragement and equipping for clergy and laypeople in the ministry of the Holy Spirit some decades ago.
