On the Way

Like all relationships, our relationship with God is always growing a developing. Here are some ideas for how to travel further along the route of knowing God, alongside others on the same journey.

PILGRIM -

Between May and July we will be running a six-week module of the C of E Pilgrim course, looking at The Lord's Prayer.

This course is less about “learning” and more about thinking and discussing what the words of this well-known prayer might mean for each of us in our daily lives. There are no “wrong” answers!

In each session there is a Bible reading, some information written by leaders within the Church of England, and a few questions to get discussion going. We will facilitate/chair the discussion time as this helps the conversation to flow more easily, without people accidentally talking over each other. If we have lots of people we would divide into smaller facilitated groups.

If you think you might be interested, you can find out more about the course here  and see a sample session here  (or phone the Parish Office and they will email a copy to you.)

Participants need a course book, which we would order in – they cost about £6.

Sessions will be held on alternate Thursday evenings, 7:30 - 9pm. Because of the Covid restrictions, it will start via Zoom, but we will consider running it “in person” when the regulations allow. We hope to run a Zoom-free option later in the year for those without internet access.

 

Course dates are: May 13th, Jun 3rd, Jun 17th, Jul 1st, Jul 15th, Jul 29th

WAY OF DISCIPLESHIP

We are also running the second module of the Birmingham Diocese Way of Discipleship course. You can do this even if you didn’t take part in module 1 last autumn.

The course takes the approach of “learn something”, “see how others apply it in their lives”, “put it into practice in our own life.” The “learning” bit is included in a course booklet which we hope participants will make time to read before the session, so we can use our time together to do a quick recap, answer questions, and then focus on the “what does it mean for me?” bit. You can see a sample session booklet here. The group times will be facilitated, and we will have around 4 people per group, so we get a range of thoughts and experience.

Sessions will be held on alternate Thursday evenings, 7:30 - 9pm. Because of the Covid restrictions, it will start via Zoom, but we will consider running it “in person” when the regulations allow. We hope to run a Zoom-free option later in the year for those without internet access.

 

Course dates are: May 6th, May 27th, Jun 10th, Jun 24th, Jul 8th, Jul 22nd.
