Pilgrim is a teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England that helps enquirers and new Christians explore what it means to travel through life with Jesus Christ.
A Christian course for the twenty-first century, Pilgrim offers an approach of participation, not persuasion. Enquirers are encouraged to practice the ancient disciplines of biblical reflection and prayer, exploring key texts that have helped people since the earliest days of the Christian faith.
Assuming little or no knowledge of the Christian faith, Pilgrim can be used at any point on the journey of discipleship and by every tradition in the Church of England.
Pilgrim is made up of two parts: Follow and Grow. Follow introduces the Christian faith for complete beginners, while Grow aims to develop a deeper level of discipleship in those who have turned to Christ.
This eighth volume, the final title in the Grow stage, explores what it means to live as a child of the kingdom of God and to follow in the way of Christ each day as a member of his Church. Its six sessions combine simple prayer, reflection on the Bible in the lectio divina style, an article by a modern writer, and time for questions and reflection, and are supported by free online audio and video resources.
Ann is a community theologian and lecturer. She directed the Commission that wrote the report ‘Faithful Cities’ and has written on the spirituality of public transport, ageing, and neighbourliness as a radical.
David Walker is the Bishop of Manchester.
John Preston is the Church of England’s National Stewardship Officer.
Rachel Treweek is the Archdeacon of Hackney.
Robert Atwell is the Bishop of Exeter and the current Chair of the Church of England's Liturgical Committee. He is the compiler of Celebrating the Saints, Celebrating the Seasons, and three anthologies of readings for special occasions: Gift, Love and Remember. His other books include Spiritual Classics from the Early Church, The Contented Life and The Good Worship Guide: Leading liturgy well. He is a co-author of the Pilgrim course.
