Roots of Faith programme

Is Roots of Faith for me?

The relaunched Roots of Faith Programme is for anyone who wants to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Two of the key areas of Vision 2026 are Making Disciples and Being Witnesses. We believe that knowing the Scriptures, understanding what we believe, and thinking about how we show this in our daily lives are crucial to our journey of Christian Discipleship and our ability to be Witnesses to Jesus Christ.  We trust that the programme's modules will help you to: 

  • Know the Scriptures better 
  • Pray with greater depth and urgency 
  • Talk about your faith with more confidence 
  • Think about how we show God’s love in action 
  • Reflect on how our churches fit in to today’s world 
  • Consider your own participation in the Church

The six modules

  • Challenging: The world and ourselves, ethics and mission in the modern world
  • Remembering: The people of God and the Old Testament
  • Exploring: Our identity through the history of our church
  • Believing: The teachings of the church; questions of faith and doctrine
  • Following: Jesus through the New Testament
  • Responding: In the power of the Holy Spirit, spirituality, prayer and worship

You can do just one module, all six, or any number of the modules. The modules are independent, so you don’t have to do them in any particular order or in a single year. 

2022-2023 Timetable and booking links

There are two modules planned for Autumn 2022, the dates of which are below. The other modules are anticipated to run in 2023 and their details will be added when they are available.

Each module will be a mixture of face to face and online sessions; The first evening session will be face to face, the following sessions will be on Zoom and the final session will be all day Saturday at Whalley Abbey (including lunch).  If you decide to attend with others from your church you could meet together on the 'Zoom' weeks and watch together and be your own 'breakout group'.

The evening sessions will begin promptly at 7.30 pm and finish before 9.30pm with a drinks break part way through
