Discipleship

This page reflects our 'normal' pattern of activities which is currently disrupted due to the Coronavirus. Please refer to our Weekly Bulletin on the Events page for up-to-date information, or contact the Church Office.

 

We aim to provide opportunities for everyone in the Benefice to nurture their faith so that they grow and flourish as followers of Christ in their relationship with God; this includes all ages and those starting out on the journey, as well as those who are more established in the Christian faith.  Some of the things on offer are:

Silent Space – Every Wednesday at 6pm in St. Mary’s Lady Chapel, we offer a place of silence and peace open to all. An opportunity to be present and be silent. Each session begins with a short introduction, followed by a period of silence for approximately 20-30 minutes, and then a concluding prayer and blessing.

Thursday Thinkers – Join us for small group discussion on Thursday mornings during Advent and Lent, as we follow seasonal and biblical themes.

Confirmation Groups – Most years, we help a group of adults and young people to prepare to confirm the promises that were made when they were baptized, in a service of Confirmation.

Lent Programme – Each year, as we prepare ourselves for Easter, we offer a diverse Lent Programme which includes a range of groups and activities based around our Lenten theme. A great opportunity to try out something new.  The programme includes a Quiet Day with a speaker and opportunities for personal contemplation.

Book of the Term – An opportunity to read and discuss books covering a range of theological subjects.

Sabeel Wave of Prayer (Prayers for Palestine / Israel) – Every Thursday from 12 to 12.30pm, we come together with Christians around the world to pray for peace in Palestine and Israel. Join us in the West Room at St. Mary’s.

Growing Leaders – The CPAS Growing Leaders course focuses on the characteristics and skills of Christian leadership that are part of all leadership roles -the foundational issues of character and call are central to the course. The course has been run 3 times so far in the Benefice.

Moseley at the Movies - Stories provide us with the chance to reflect on our own story and watching a film offers the opportunity to see how our story, the film’s story and God’s story all interact. Each month we meet to watch a whole film and then reflect together on topical or ethical issues or anything that promises fruitful discussion. Some are popular blockbusters whilst others are lesser known foreign language or art-house films.
