EXPLORING CHRISTIAN SPIRITUALITY

Event details

The course is open to people of all traditions, those of other faith groups, and any who are interested in exploring the theme of Christian spirituality. It stands alone, but also forms an ideal preparation for other courses that we run or host.

The course comprises three modules and runs for 20 sessions over two terms, with a break for Christmas and Easter. The first session is on Monday 7 October 2019 and the last on Monday 30 March 2020. Each session runs from 6.00pm to 8.45pm.

The fee is £425, with an earlybird fee of £400 if booked in full by 1 September. Please contact us if you want to pay termly.

Course Modules:
This course is intended to be experiential rather than academic and has a gentle pace, complementing personal journeys in spiritual development. Those who participate are asked to be generous in sharing their wisdom and may sometimes be challenged to find new riches as different traditions of Christian spirituality are explored.

  • Preparing the Ground: looking at images of God through personal experience, scripture and prayer
  • The Wisdom of the Ages: an introduction to some of the mazi traditions of Christian spirituality
  • The Witness of Scripture and Life: how biblical themes can inform our spirituality.

To aid this process participants are invited to keep a reflective log through the year, the fruits of which are shared with their tutor. There are also some written assignments to aid the process of learning.

“My prayer life has deepened, I feel more “complete” - I have learned to trust God: these changes feel profound.” 2017-2018 participant
