At Growing Faith. Together, we aim to create an informal and welcoming environment where individuals from all parts of our diocese can come together to explore and deepen their faith. Whether you are a long-time believer, in church leadership or just starting your spiritual journey, this event is for you! If you can come with others from your parish team you will be able to get even more from learning and reflecting together.

Throughout the day, we will have engaging speakers, thought-provoking discussions, and inspiring worship sessions.

Keynote Speaker: Christopher Jamison - Former Abbot of Worth Abbey; reluctant star of the BBC2 series, The Monastery; Director of Vocations for England and Wales from 2010-2017 will speak on spiritual patterns for every day life and lead a workshop on learning from Benedictine rhythms.

Workshops and short talks throughout the day will enable us to hear from the experience of others across the whole diocese who are seeking to help people grow in their discipleship and to help their churches flourish including:

  • Holy Habits
  • Renewing culture and building hope
  • Sabbath rest
  • New resources for encouraging growth in faith
  • Growing faith with young people
  • Developing patterns of life that fit with our temperament and personality
  • and more to be announced

There will be time to meet personally with all of our speakers and to find out more about the challenges and joys they have experienced.

You will have the opportunity to connect, think and pray with others who are longing to grow in faith and see our churches thrive, share your experiences, and learn from one another.

Our goal is to foster a sense of community across the diocese and provide a space for personal and corporate growth. We believe that by coming together, we can inspire and support one another on our faith journeys.

So mark your calendars and get ready to be a part of something special. Growing Faith. Together is not to be missed! Join us as we embark on this journey of faith and friendship, living out Transforming Church. Together

Note: This event both stands alone, but is also part of a series throughout the year focusing on helping us to develop new and more effective discipleship pathways within our churches.
