Come and See

Many people are asking deep questions of faith. Jesus says, ‘Come and see, come and explore, let me help you to understand how all this fits together’. So why not walk with us, as we walk with Jesus.

Come and See

Come and See

Many people are asking deep questions of faith. “Come and See” is an invitation from our Bishops to local communities to take the first steps in exploring faith.

Who is it for?

Come and See is an invitation to everyone, for everyone. It’s for anyone who feels adrift in this pandemic, whether or not they know anything about the Christian faith.

When you register using the link below, we’ll send you some helpful information and daily reflections through to the end of March. If you’d like us to, we’ll also put you in touch with your local church, but that’s entirely up to you.

The journey…

Our first Come and See journey began on 17 February and ends on Saturday 3 April . Take a peek at some of the daily reflections and resources we’ve shared. There will be another opportunity to join another Come and See journey in the weeks to follow, so watch this space!

Come and See includes five complimentary contemplative practices from our new Contemplative Toolkit (published this Spring). The guides are published each Sunday during Lent and available to download from this page.

Stilling
In our busy world, we often forget the ancient wisdom that we are human beings not human doings.

Dwelling
This practice is about the way the Bible can ‘come alive’ as you read it.

Mending
As we move through these practices, we touch on some of the more difficult aspects of life.

Noticing apparently small and insignificant details of life can help us realise that they are actually signs
pointing to personal, spiritual and community truth.

Blessing
In this practice we use the tree of life as a symbol to think about how we can be blessed, and how we might bless others.

Everyone who has registered for Come and See receives a short film (also available as a podcast and online audio) via an email each week telling the great story of our faith.

I Believe in God, Father Almighty

I Believe in Jesus Christ

He was crucified, died and rose again…

I Believe in the Holy Spirit

The Church and the forgiveness of sins

I believe in the Holy Spirit

When we feel worn down by life, the Holy Spirit can bring us comfort and peace. But how do we actually experience the Holy Spirit at work in our lives?

He was crucified…

Even on the best of days, there are shadows in our lives – darkness created by our human tendency to mess things up. What lies beyond that final shadow?

I believe in Jesus Christ

When all around us is in chaos, coming back to the Father can help us recover a sense of identity and purpose. But what’s the next step on our journey?

I believe in God

As far as we know, we’re the only part of the universe able to consider the cosmos and its meaning. Who gave us that need to know our purpose?

Matthew’s story

Matthew was familiar with the rhythms of attending church. But it wasn’t until he stepped out of the familiar that he found something he truly felt a part of.

Dom and Katie’s story

Discovering Jesus saved Dom’s life. He then met Katie, an atheist, and, together they discovered the Christian faith afresh.

Nour’s story

Nour had heard people say that ‘Jesus died for her’. But that left her with one big question – why me? Finding the answer transformed her life.

An invitation…

… to anyone who feels adrift in this pandemic, whether or not they know anything about the Christian faith.
