Published this year, Phil Moore's 'Straight to the Heart' series is accessible, full of useful application and backed by substantial scholarship. The books are a great resource for daily devotions, house groups or as a preaching aid.
The Diocesan vision emphasises creating new communities and initiatives where Christ is central. St Augustine saw Christ’s role in the Trinity as ‘understanding’ - triangulating memory (the Father) and will (the Holy Spirit). The Centre’s first aim is to promote and equip a better understanding of the Christian faith.
Just as Christ is ‘understanding’, He is also humanity. The Resource Centre intends to be more than a physical place with materials of spiritual value - it’s also about people and the Centre can be a network.
Maybe you’d benefit in your role or at your church from professional advice or training from Diocesan staff. Perhaps you have a need, or something to offer, or are looking for ways to ‘put your faith to work’. The Centre may be able to point you in the right direction. Get in touch!
