Sharing Our Faith
The Archbishop of Canterbury’s new training series Sharing Our Faith is now available.
The full training session made up of five videos is designed to be run by churches, small groups or individuals and includes questions for small group engagement. Churches are encouraged to host the session for their congregations in the run-up – or during Thy Kingdom Come – the global wave of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost.
Archbishop Justin talks with the Ven Liz Adekunle, the Archdeacon of Hackney; Rachel Gardner, youth worker and founder of Romance Academy; and the Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford. You can watch a trailer here.
The four discuss how and why Christians share their faith, what some of the barriers are, and how to build confidence in evangelism.
In the video the Archbishop says that God often uses us as the answer to our own prayers.
“We witness to hundreds of things every day,” he says. “Being a witness isn’t unusual, but it’s about growing as a witness to Jesus Christ...
“...I want to tell people about Jesus because 43 years ago he found me and my life was changed. Through all the really bad and really good, he’s never changed. He’s always there. We exist to show the world that Jesus is the Son of God, that really matters.”
Archbishop Justin says, “Join in, plan it into your church schedules - spend an evening looking at this and talking together. I think you’ll enjoy it as much as we have!"
The five training sessions are available here.
