It starts at the very beginning
Pilgrim assumes very little understanding or knowledge of the Christian faith.
It focuses on Jesus Christ
Pilgrim aims to equip people to follow Jesus Christ as disciples in the whole of their lives.
It flows from the Scriptures
The primary focus of each session is a group of people engaging with the Bible together.
It draws deeply from the Christian tradition
In the Early Church, the Christian faith was taught by the transmission of key texts which summed up the heart of the Christian message.
Pilgrim restores this approach for the twenty-first century.
It honours the Anglican way and its many streams
Pilgrim has been developed as a specifically Anglican resource which aims to cater for every tradition in the Church of England.
The Pilgrim course at Ss Philip & James
This year, the Church of England's Pilgrim Course will continue to be offered at Ss Philip & James! This is a course can serve many purposes for those of fresh faith and those of established faith. It can help prepare for Confirmation or as a way of re-engaging with the Christian faith in a new and accessible way.
Six home groups, containing nearly 50 people, have been formed to mark the start of the Lenten journey of faith.
More will be formed in the months to come.
