We are fully committed to helping every member grow in their understanding and experience of faith so that each of us can more confidently engage in our communities and serve a world so desperately in need of God’s Good News.

The Learning in Faith programme offers a broad and varied series of learning opportunities that are suitable for anyone to come along and enjoy.  You'll find sessions on everything from prayer, fresh expressions and community engagement to social media, vocations and making connections with schools.

Have a look at what is on offer and see how these courses can support your church's plans for 2020 and beyond.  Many of the sessions are perfect for a small group from a church to attend together- come along, learn and take that learning back to your church.
