Living in Love and Faith

How do questions about identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage fit within the bigger picture of the good news of Jesus Christ? What does it mean to live in love and faith together as a Church?

Christians in Devon are being invited to “listen and learn together” using the Church of England’s Living in Love and Faith resources looking at these questions.

They include a book, study guides, podcasts and a powerful series of real-life personal story films.

We hope that most churches across Devon will have run the Living in Love and Faith course by the end of November 2021. People who have done the course will be invited to offer feedback by completing a survey. The feedback will be discussed at a national level in the Church of England in 2022 with a view to discerning a way forward together. You can  view the LLF timetable here.

Where do I get the resources?

To access all the resources please visit the Living in Love and Faith website.

If you decide to run the course in your church or group please let us know

We would love to know which churches in Devon are running this course so that we can get feedback from you. Please fill in this form and we’ll be in touch!

The Bishop of Crediton, the Right Reverend Jackie Searle, is the Diocese of Exeter advocate for the Living in Love and Faith process.

“The resources explore questions that go to the heart of our human identity, and most crucially, to people’s lived experiences. There are those in the Church of England who would like to see change in the areas of sexuality and relationships, those who do not wish for such a change, and many who simply do not know. Living in Love and Faith is an invitation to deep listening to one another and to God, and a wonderful opportunity to learn together, in humility and grace. I wholeheartedly commend Living in Love and Faith as an excellent resource.”
