Walking the way Living the Life of Jesus Today

walking--the-way-2017-18

Walking the Way is the United Reformed Church’s exciting focus on lifelong Christian discipleship and mission. It moves beyond a set of programmes into the world, where each step we take is accompanied by Jesus, helping us to bring about change in our own lives and, ultimately, in Church culture and society. As you engage in Walking the Way, we hope your understanding of what being a Christian disciple means will deepen. Who knows, you may grow beyond your wildest dreams, living as a disciple in all parts of your life. 

The Greek word for ‘disciple’ is mathetes, which literally means: ‘one who learns as they follow’.

Walking the Way explores what it means to follow actively, learn from – and eventually be transformed by – Jesus. It’s for anyone at any stage of the Christian journey – whoever you are, whatever your existing relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church, whatever your personal circumstances. It’s for you whether you have been following Jesus for five days or five decades.

Of course, there’s nothing new about being a disciple of Christ. What is new about Walking the Way is its practical, flexible, dynamic and accessible approach, and the wide range of supporting resources produced and planned. Over time, these web pages will fill with rich, creative materials to help you on your walk – as an individual, as you walk with others, and as you walk courageously in the world.

Holy Habits

Holy Habits is a ten part initiative to nurture Christian discipleship. It explores Luke's model of church found in Acts 2:42 - 47, identifies ten habits and encourages the development of a way of life formed by them. The other titles are: serving, biblical teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, sharing of resources, eating together, gladness and generosity, worship, prayer and making more disciples. The resources have been developed to help churches explore the habits in worship and other group activities (all-age or age-specific) and live out the habits in whole life, missional discipleship.
