Diocese of Southwark: Bishop’s Certificate
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.
