Roots of Faith programme

Is Roots of Faith for me?

The relaunched Roots of Faith Programme is for anyone who wants to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Two of the key themes of Vision 2026 are Making Disciples and Being Witnesses.

We believe that knowing the Scriptures, understanding what we believe, and thinking about how we show this in our daily lives are crucial to our journey of Christian Discipleship and our ability to be Witnesses to Jesus Christ. 

We trust that the programme's modules will help you to:

  • Know the Scriptures better 
  • Pray with greater depth and urgency 
  • Talk about your faith with more confidence 
  • Think about how we show God’s love in action
  • Reflect on how our churches fit in to today’s world 
  • Consider your own participation in the Church

The next module begins on Thursday 3rd November - full details are below.

 

Module Timetable 2022-23

The Roots of Faith programme consists of six independent modules. You can do just one module, all six, or any number inbetween. There will be approximately two modules running per term, but you don’t have to do them all in a single year.

Each module will be a mixture of face to face and online sessions; The first evening session will be face to face, the following sessions will be on Zoom and the final session will be all day Saturday at Whalley Abbey (including lunch).  If you decide to attend with others from your church you could meet together on the 'Zoom' weeks and watch together and be your own 'breakout group'.

The evening sessions will begin promptly at 7.30 pm and finish before 9.30pm with a drinks break part way through.
