And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. (Colossians 1:9-10, ESV)

Being a Christian is an exciting and lifelong journey. In the Bible, we are told how Jesus' disciples left everything to follow him and how their lives were transformed forever. Likewise, we are called to the same great adventure of faith.

Across the diocese, you will find churches offering all sorts of courses that can help you to explore and grow in your faith and understanding of God. Amongst some of the best known are AlphaChristianity ExploredLife ExploredJesus-Shaped People and Discipleship Explored. A locally filmed course, Faith Pictures, has also proved to be a popular new addition.

So, if the big questions of life and the journey of faith are on your mind, or if you just want to find out a bit more about Jesus, then why not pop into your local church and ask what courses are running near you.

Alternatively, you can contact the Diocesan Local Ministry Officer to find out more about our Foundations for Ministry Course.
