Gathering, Growing, Going Tree

Gathering. Growing. Going.

January 13, 2014

A five-session course for 2014. We live in changing times; times when the role of the Church and the place of Christianity in daily life are regularly challenged. Even the familiar landscape of the Church in Wales is being re-designed. In these circumstances it is easy to become anxious. But the gospel is still good news for us and for the world; it is an antidote to worry, especially in difficult times. The Gathering. Growing. Going. course offers us an opportunity to re-acquaint ourselves with the basic truths, values and practices of Christianity so that we can become sure of what we know and grow more confident in our ability to live and share our faith. Gathering. Growing. Going. is a course for groups. They may be small and local or, where parishes in Ministry Areas have already begun to work together, it can be an opportunity for a number of parish groups to get together. It is a short course based on five new Vision resources – a series of publications called “Simple Guides”: VisionLogo-RGB
  • PRAYER – A SIMPLE GUIDE
  • READING THE BIBLE – A SIMPLE GUIDE
  • LIVING AS DISCIPLES – A SIMPLE GUIDE
  • CHRISTIANITY – A SIMPLE GUIDE
  • PILGRIMAGE – A SIMPLE GUIDE
The Simple Guides are freely available for parishes to use in a variety of ways. They are also available online via the Resources page. The course, which will comprise notes for leaders, is completely downloadable; however, you can also pick up hard copies at either the Diocesan Centre in Brecon or the Eastmoor Resource Centre in Swansea. Gathering. Growing. Going. is a course that can be followed during Lent or at other times of the year.
