Living your Faith

A course produced by the diocese in 2012 and tried and tested in many parishes.

Revd Sarah Hutton, Diocesan Spiritual Growth Facilitator reviews the first module, entitled Journey ​of Faith, which she led in her own parish.

Everyone is responsible for their own journey of faith, the name of this first module. The aim of Living your Faith is to help people decide how to go about ‘moving on’ in the Christian life. Course participants found extremely helpful Westerhoff’s stages of faith , which were referred to throughout, as it gave them an understanding of where they are or might wish to be. The course materials are important and were helpful but the facilitator needs to be very flexible, reflecting back what had been discussed.  The outcome of the course was both a desire to ‘do’ something together and also a desire to ‘know’ more. As relationships in the group deepened, so did their relationship with God.
