There are many creative and inspirational websites on the Internet these days. It pays to be selective and to adapt the material you find to your own needs.
Here are some sites that have been reviewed by the Learning & Discipleship Development Team. We can recommend them but would encourage you to adapt the content and techniques to your own congregation/group situation.
seven sacred spaces
Seven Sacred Spaces is an imaginative way of helping us to realise that God is to be found in the midst of situations and encounters which are common to most of us. It is a means of helping us to recognise that our common life as Christians can be strengthened, by seeing that God is at work in all kinds of normal and routine activities and actions. Do look at the 7SS taster videos, first.
Fresh Expressions is certainly not for everyone! However it is recognised as a movement of the Spirit in today's Church and seeks to transform communities and individuals through new ways of being Church. It has resulted in thousands of new congregations being formed alongside more traditional churches.read more
Cursillo is more of a movement than a course. It aims to re-awaken people to the calling they received in their baptism to be witnesses for Christ, to give them the stimulus to plan ways of doing this, and to provide support structures through which they can encourage each other and hold each other accountable before God for their lives as Christian witnesses.read more
Pilgrim is a major new teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England. It aims to help every local church create a place where people can explore the Christian faith together and see how it can be lived out each day. It takes a different approach from other Christian programmes. It approaches the great issues of faith not through persuasion, but participation in a pattern of contemplation and discussion with a group of fellow travellers. Do look at the 3 introductory/promo videos first to see if this is for you. It has very good endorsements.read more
