Growing in Faith

Discussion group at diocesan synod exploring how to grow together

Christian faith involves life-long learning. This is expressed in our Kingdom Vision particularly in terms of growing as disciples. The word translated "disciple" in the Bible could equally well be translated as "learner". Another popular image is that of the journey, and the Christian as a pilgrim travelling the way of Jesus.

Growth in faith happens differently for different people, as God's Holy Spirit works in them through prayer, worship, study, engagement with one another, acts of practical service, mission and witness, and the ordinary routines and events of daily life.

There is a lot about growth in faith elsewhere on this website, particularly in the section Your Christian Calling. The pages in this section will link to particularly courses, programmes and events that support people on their journey of life-long learning as pilgrims with and disciples of Jesus Christ.
