Living Faith is the Diocesan discipleship training course.

“Took a ‘phone call today from someone who had seen the Ian DaviesLiving Faith reader on Spirituality and wanted to do the course. Her friend is starting a new module and wants her to go to the same group. I said that Living Faith can be started with any of the modules, and offered to arrange for the group leader to ‘phone her”
