                                                       Parish of Putney’s: Adults Exploring Faith Course

(previously known as the 4Bs course)

Been coming to church and want to visit or revisit the foundations of our faith?  Don’t know much about Christianity and would love to learn more?  Thinking of getting Baptised or Confirmed? Would value time with a small group or adults exploring faith in an open, inquisitive, supportive way? Then please do contact Rev’d John [email protected] for further details about our annual Adults Exploring Faith course, usually run after Easter.

To book a place on the course please email our Parish Records Clerk, Antonia Wainman [email protected]

 For those of you interested in further developing your faith the Diocese’s annual Growing in Faith and Life course usually takes place between September and June. Those who complete the course are awarded the Bishop’s Certificate in Discipleship. The six modules cover the Old and New Testaments; the history of the church and what it means to be Anglican; what Christians believe; living and praying as a follower of Jesus; and putting your future into God’s hands.
