Living in Love and Faith

‘Living in Love and Faith’ is a set of free teaching and learning resources which draws together the Bible, theology, science and history with powerful real-life stories. 

The Church is home to a great diversity of people. There are serious differences of opinion on a variety of things, including human sexuality, and the Living in Love and Faith resources engage with those differences. They are the product of three years’ work by more than 40 people, led by the Bishop of Coventry. They include a 480-page book, a series of films and podcasts, a course and an online library of other publications.

As a diocese, we will be engaging with Living in Love and Faith at our March meeting of the Diocesan Synod, including setting out how we plan to engage with it. Parishes and deaneries will be encouraged to think about how they might also use some of these resources in due course. Director of Ministry and Discipleship, Jonathan Kimber, has been appointed as the Diocesan Advocate for this work and will be looking at how best to support this process. All are welcome to respond to the ‘next steps’ group led by the Bishop of London, which will report back to General Synod in 2022.
