We firmly believe that the Christian faith is about growing – growing in our understanding of God, our love for God and our commitment to him in our daily lives. 


Just as we would judge the health of a plant in our garden by whether it was growing or not, so we can see how healthy our faith is by asking a simple question – am I growing?

In Shirley Parish we seek to help people grow with thought provoking sermons as part of our worship, by encouraging people to take part in various courses and by offering small groups or home groups where the Bible can be read and discussed and we can learn from it and from each other.

It challenges us to think about whether our life would be better with God or without God, and it begins to make us think about Jesus - his life, death and resurrection – and the Holy Spirit.

MOVING ON – the next steps from the START course. This one again mixes group discussion with from the front learning and helps us to think about what living the Christian life means for us day by day. In terms of worship, relationships, ambition and more
