Christians in Practice

Simon Foster writes…

“…David Primrose wants you to know about the launch of our research Christians in Practice, which will take place on Thursday 19 October 2017 in the West Midlands.”

“Our research, backed by CUF, Arthur Rank Centre, and the dioceses of Lichfield and Birmingham, has surveyed over 1,000  Church of England churchgoers in 32 congregations, and we’re interviewing 30 individuals in depth, to explore how Christians regard the connection between faith and practice.  Like our previous research, What Helps Disciples Grow, we’re shaping a research report and launch event to provide practical learning for the church.  The results are pouring in at the moment.   The responses I’m seeing to questions like ‘how could your church help you connect your faith and your community activity?’ promise some very interesting reflection on the day.”

“If you’re interested, please put the date in your diary.   We’ll add your name to our regular mailing list and send you more details in the coming weeks.”
