- growing faith
- deepening discipleship
- building ministry
Living Faith is designed to help you grow in your faith, deepen your discipleship, and perhaps prepare you for a particular role in the life of your church. It will help you to gain a greater understanding of God’s relationship with you, his church and the world, and help you to grow and mature in your discipleship.
Is this for me?
There are no age limits, and you do not need to have done any formal learning before.
What does Living Faith cover?
The programme is in six sections (modules):
- Spirituality and Prayer
- Exploring the Bible – New Testament
- Questions of Faith
- Reshaping Church
- Exploring the Bible – Old Testament
- Challenging Choices (Ethics)
What will I be doing?
You will receive a Study Guide at the start of each module. At home, in your own time, you will work through a section of the Study Guide, reading and thinking, jotting down some notes etc. This may take an hour or two.Then you will meet for a group session, where you will have an opportunity to discuss what you have done at home, share insights and ideas, and learn together.
Each group will be led by a “tutor”, who is there to answer any questions you have, and to guide you. Sometimes your tutor will also lead you in an activity. The course material is designed to be used flexibly depending on the interests of each group.
There are 10 group sessions for every module. (For those who wish to, there is the opportunity to submit assignments and gain a certificate, but this is entirely optional).
What will it cost?
The Diocese of Swansea and Brecon is subsidising much of the cost of the programme, but you are asked to contribute £10 per module. Your parish may consider helping with this cost.
How do I find out more?
If you are interested in being part of a Living Faith group, the first thing to do is to speak to your parish priest.
