LEARNING

"Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path!" (Psalms 119).

 

To continue our journey of knowing Christ more deeply, we need to continue learning and exploring His Word. This learning path doesn't end, as we must keep challenging ourselves in our understanding and application of the Scriptures in our lives. The encouragement to keep on learning is clear: "For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known."  (1 Corinthians 13:12). God is revealed.

 

We're aware that this can feel like a big challenge alone, so there are a number of ways of exploring the Bible with others. Bible study groups are one way of doing this (see list below). Other ways include working with the children and youth team; singing in the choir and volunteering as a server or reader. There are many online resources available too. We've listed some of our favourites at the end of this page

Confirmation classes:

What is Confirmation? Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptised and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.

The Bishop of Hertford will confirm candidates from the Welwyn Team Churches at a service of Choral Evensong at 6.30 pm on Sunday 10th June 2018.  Confirmation classes will begin after Easter.  To find out more about this contact rector@welwyn.org.uk
