LIVING IN LOVE AND FAITH is a short course to help people think more deeply about what it means to be human, and to live in love and faith with one another in a society with changing understandings and practices of gender, sexuality and marriage. It is a national church initiative set up by the bishops to help them discern a way forward for the church. More information can be found on the posters in church along with a sign-up sheet.
