We have studied several of the Pilgrim courses at The Good Shepherd.
Pilgrim has been written by:
Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford (our former Area Bishop)
The courses aim to help people to explore and grow in the Christian faith.
In Lent we looked at the first of the Pilgrim courses, 'Turning to Christ':
This is really a Christian basics course, suitable for those who wish to explore the Christian faith, to prepare for Baptism and/or Confirmation, or simply to do a ‘refresher’ course. This course uses the baptism promises as a focus for learning about the Christian faith. It is also the course we use for anyone wishing to be confirmed. There are additional sessions on The Church, The Bible, Prayer and Holy Communion.
Each session has a similar structure, including time for worship, time to chat, CD and DVD input for each session, an opportunity to reflect on a Bible reading, and some questions to explore together.
We plan to run other Pilgrim courses during 2017, including one on The 10 Commandments. Whether or not you are a regular worshipper with us, we would love you to join us.
