Everyday Faith

Four ways you and your church can grow in everyday faith – in which every calling matters Monday to Saturday, and everyone is called.

Why does this matter?

98% of Christian disciples spend 95% of their time not in church.

Disciples love God and other people in businesses, schools, hospitals, sports grounds, shops, cafes, theatres, cinemas, at bus stops, in houses...and sometimes even in church gatherings.

Every area of life matters to God, belongs to God, and is part of His creation.

Jesus died and rose again to bring freedom and restoration to all people, all things, all parts of life.  Christian hope is for everything, and everyone!

The short video below shares that vision:

 

I want to understand more how being a Christian can change my workplace

This short booklet, ‘How can the Good News transform my workplace?’, taken from ‘Way of Discipleship’ has three stories about how Christians have sought to join in with God at work and material on questions such as:  Are some things sacred and somethings secular? Is work a blessing or a curse?

I want resources which will help me connect my everyday life to my faith

The CofE has a whole load of digital resources for finding and following God in everyday life.  By signing up to its “Everyday Faith Portal” here you can access for free bitesize, yet in-depth, resources on topics relevant to you, that will help you help find and follow God in everyday life.

These resources will inspire, equip and encourage you in your everyday faith, whoever you are and wherever this is.

You can use them on your own, or with others.  

My church wants to help people grow in Everyday Faith in simple ways

From September 2022 there will be a two-year learning community for any church that wants to grow in making changes to become an 'Everyday Faith' affirming church.

A small team from your church will meet 2-3 times a year with others to implement small shifts, relevant to your situation. Watch this short video to find out more. 

Please contact Guy Donegan-Cross to find out more.
