Come and See

Come and See takes place during Lent each year. We’re currently preparing the 2022 programme, but you can explore some of this year’s resources and films at any time.

Come and See

Come and See

Many people are asking deep questions of faith. “Come and See” is an annual invitation from our Bishops 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, whether or not they know anything about the Christian faith.

The journey…

Take a peek at some of the daily reflections and resources in 2021. And look out for details of our 2022 programme a little later this year.

Come and See includes five complimentary contemplative practices from our new Contemplative Toolkit. An invaluable way to slow down and reflect in these busy times. Click the links below to download each practice.

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 registers 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. In 2021 we explored the Apostles’ Creed with Bishop Steven.

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

Come and See is a daily email journey during Lent, complete with videos and resources to explore. These are just a taster from our 2021 journey.

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.
