Lots of people – probably you included! Disciples aren’t just the first followers of Jesus, and they aren’t ultra-holy people who’ve got everything sorted. We believe that anyone who follows Jesus and tries to live out their Christian faith is a disciple. We all have the chance to worship and to pray, to learn more about what we believe, and to live out our Christian faith.
When we read about Jesus’ life, we see him talking about everyday things, and meeting people going about their daily business. God is interested in every aspect of our lives. This life involves every aspect of who we are: at work; enjoying art, music, food, celebration and sport; and in worship, prayer and studying the Bible. And that can be how other people first come into contact with the Christian faith: a recent survey showed that over a third of practising Christians said that a conversation with a Christian had helped them to come to faith – and one in five non-Christians are open to find out more about the Christian faith.
If you have been a Christian for a while but would like to know more about your faith, you might like to consider doing one or more modules of the new Diocesan discipleship learning programme 'Routes of Faith: Making Informed Disciples'.
