Discover Faith

We believe that God has a plan and purpose for everyone and it all starts with Jesus. You can begin to find answers to your questions on these pages and how you can join with others exploring what it means to live the Christian life. 

I’m New to Faith

From finding the right church for you and how to get involved to big events like weddings, baptisms and funerals, we’re here to help guide you through. You will also be able to find churches with specific amenities that you may require, for example children’s groups or disabled facilities. 

There are over 300 Church of England churches in our diocese where you will receive a warm welcome and the opportunity to experience the worshipping community. 

Worship, prayer and studying the bible can help you grow, flourish and support you to live out your faith in everyday life. 

Followers of Jesus can be of any age and we want to encourage children and young people to discover for themselves how relevant and inspiring the message of Jesus is for them today. 

All of life is celebrated in the Church of England, and we have a wealth of services to mark these special and significant times.

ATTEND A CHURCH SERVICE

Living the Christian life isn’t easy but God has given us a wonderful gift and resource for the journey – the Church. You are never meant to do it alone but are invited to be a part of a community that is travelling together, worshipping together, praying together, sharing the joys and frustrations of life and encouraging one another.  

There are over 300 Church of England churches in our diocese to choose from with a variety of styles to suit your taste: you might prefer something traditional with choirs and organ music and a familiar structure, or you might want a more relaxed style with contemporary music, or something for all the family to share together in. Most of our churches will offer more than one style and you can find one near you with details about service times, the style of the service and facilities. A range of our churches are streaming their services online for anyone to join from wherever you are.

Discovery Courses

Your local church will often run discovery groups for people like you who might be exploring faith, perhaps for the first time. You will have the opportunity to share your questions together, and explore what faith could mean to you.
