▶Stepping Out - Transforming Discipleship - led by The Rt Revd Peter Hill
▼Stepping Out - Transforming Discipleship - led by The Rt Revd Peter Hill
Discipleship is the predominant theme and challenge for the church of Christ in a changing world. Jesus' first and simplest command was and remains - "Follow me". How do we know the way? What are the limits? Which boundaries must we cross? What is the Kingdom of God? These are just some of the discipleship questions we will explore together.Bishop Peter Hill is currently serving as the Bishop of Barking. He is currently one of the team of bishops engaged in responding to the refugee crisis. He is particularly involved with other faith leaders, through Citizens UK, as an advocate for the child refugees.

Rediscovering Sabbath in our lives - led by Magdalen Houlihan
Rediscovering Sabbath in our lives - led by Magdalen Houlihan
May I take a little poetic licence?
Mark 2. 27 ...The sabbath was made to meet the needs of man...
Sabbath is more an attitude than a day of the week.
Today we have an opportunity to explore and experience stillness.
Magdalen Houlihan retired from teaching and is engaged in promoting silent prayer and supporting those entering into the regular daily practice of this prayer of quiet. "Some of us seem to stumble upon Silent Prayer. We are not aware that we are looking for prayer. Perhaps we do not know what we are looking for; we only know that there is a yearning within that is not being satisfied. Having come upon the place in which the hidden treasure is, I am committed to guiding others to this place."
