Routes of Faith programme

The new Routes of Faith Programme is for anyone who is interested in learning more about their Christian faith.

Two of the key areas 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 context 
  • Consider your own participation in the Church

You can do just one module, all six, or any number of the modules. The modules are  independent, so you don’t have to do them in any particular order or in a single year. You can choose whether to complete assignments, and what sort of assignment to do – they aren’t all essays!


Module timetable 2017/2018

All sessions will begin promptly at 7 pm and finish at 9.15 pm, with a drinks break partway through
