The Living God’s Love journey has three strands, not separate journeys, not three options from which to take our pick, rather a single journey into the love of God for us and for his world: the strands are:-
- Going Deeper into God
- Transforming Communities
- Making New Disciples
It’s a journey worth travelling and a journey worth exploring.
You can download below three presentations; each one leads a reflection based on a biblical journey:
Going deeper into God
– 1 Kings 19
The Disciples’ Journey
– Luke 10
Making New Disciples
The Journey to Emmaus
– Luke 24
It is helpful to look at them together and compare the themes in each of the journeys.

The progression of Living God’s Love – since launch in 2011:
Diocesan Synod heard and agreed the findings of this exercise and the proposed way forward on October 17th 2015.
The Power Point presentation that the Synod was shown has been produced in two parts, each about 15 MB to show to congregations, PCCs, Clergy Chapters or Deanery Synods, with the audio of the presentation from Synod.
The first half is about the listening exercise and its findings:
