Exploring Faith

May I know you more clearly, love you more dearly and follow you more nearly, day by day

Living life as a Christian is a spiritual adventure rooted in love, forgiveness, and a commitment to peace and reconciliation. It is not always easy or straightforward.

When questions of faith and spirituality stir, the Christian tradition suspects they are stirred by the Holy Spirit. That is, they are a response to the movement of the Spirit in the life of an individual. So if you are reading these pages, the chances are that you are curious enough to explore them.

The Christian tradition also values waiting, not knowing, silence and prayer. So give yourself time to wonder about God’s dream for the world, and the person you are being called to be within it. 

Ponder the deepest questions of life and death, and put yourselves deliberately in the way of experiences that will evoke you to awe.

And then take action. Go further on, further in. Find ways to give your time or resources to help build just and faithful communities and serve others wherever you are.

All of the videos on this page are made by and with our own congregation who are explorers along with you. They are about prayer, the Eucharist (the holy meal of bread and wine which Christians share) and people’s personal journey of faith. Get in touch with us if you’d like to know more or just come and join us on a Sunday at 11am.

Sharing perspectives on following Christ

People can assume that there is just ‘one’ Christianity, one way of seeing it all and of living it out. But this is not so. There are different perspectives and approaches. As a church, we want to explore the spiritual mysteries of living: the mystery of God, of Christ, of Creation. God speaks – and is honoured – in the concrete realities of our lives. And those realities differ. In sharing and exploring them together we believe we help one another move towards a fuller understanding of the Gospels. And of one another.
