What’s available for ‘discipleship’, beyond the courses that many will have heard of and used, such as Alpha, Emmaus and Christianity Explored? Below you can find a short guide to the latest digital resources, a review of well-established materials, as well as some resources we have produced for parish and individual use.

What is a 'Rule of Life' and how do you begin to make the framework for your own rule of life.
