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.
Between October and January we will be running a six-week module of the C of E Pilgrim course, looking at the "Blessed are...." sayings of Jesus (also known as "The Beatitudes").
This course is less about “learning” and more about thinking and discussing what these words of
Jesus 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.
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 via Zoom. One or more 'in person' groups will be set up if required.
Course dates are: 21st Oct, 4th Nov, 18th Nov, 2nd Dec, (Christmas break), 13th Jan 2022, 27th Jan
WAY OF DISCIPLESHIP
We are also running the third module of the Birmingham Diocese Way of Discipleship course. You can do this even if you didn’t take part in modules 1 and 2 earlier this year.
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 via Zoom.
Course dates are: 20th Jan 2022, 3rd Feb, 17th Feb, 3rd March, 17th March
