Sharing Faith

There are all sorts of ways of sharing our faith, and these will be different for each relationship and person. The truth is that most of need a bit of help and advice in this area.

Most of us are not natural evangelists and the thought of proactively sharing our faith can be alarming! Yet it is what we are called to do in whatever ways we can and there is nothing more powerful than personal testimony in helping new people open up to the possibility of faith. We all have a story – whether we are cradle Anglicans or had a dramatic conversion experience. We just need to have the confidence to share it naturally if the opportunity arises.

We recommend Sharing Faith. This free resource from the Diocese is a short three session course (90 minutes each) for groups, or could be used by individuals, which helps everyone find a way to tell their story of what God has done. It is simple and we think that anyone can do it. It’s free.

It can be used by a variety of church groups:

  • Housegroups
  • PCCs
  • Advent / Lent groups
  • Pastoral visiting teams
  • Children’s & youth
  • Welcome teams
  • Mothers’ Union groups

It does not require any technology – just a group of people (eg. 6 – 12), the notes, Bibles, comfy chairs and a cup of coffee.

Have a look. Learn to tell your story and see what God will do with it when you do!
