Discipleship course launched with blessing from Archbishop Justin Welby

A new Christian discipleship course for church congregations and groups of all traditions was launched yesterday at Lambeth Palace.

”˜Pilgrim: A course for the Christian journey’ is part of the Church of England’s focus on spiritual and numerical growth. It is the first national discipleship course to be commissioned by the House of Bishops.
The programme ”“ which promises ”˜participation, not persuasion’ ”“ seeks to reach parishes that have never run courses of this kind, as well as to offer additional approaches to churches to already running programmes such as Alpha.

Read it all.

    Oh there have been plenty of discipleship courses in the CofE, the Beta Course at HTB which follows the Alpha Course, as well as Discipleship Explored at All Souls, Langham Place following on from Christianity Explored. There have also been a number of wishy washy liberal inspired efforts to do things like help ‘people make the journey’ as the screaming inclusive church liberal revisionist +Stephen Cotrell advocates which just sink without trace.

    Discipleship courses are about post-Alpha, Christianity Explored equipping and formation of Christians following Jesus, understanding their faith and being equipped for that mission to make disciples of the rest of the world, something the liberal loons like the CofE establishment including apparently Welby do not understand.

    I expect this will be the last that we hear about this ‘very exciting venture’ if it delivers what +Stephen Cottrell promises.
