A prayer and discipleship action for this coming week

Adult & All Age

Live your faith

 Encourage adults to put their faith into action.

Prepare a simple one-sentence response to give when people ask you, ‘What did you do at the weekend?’ – e.g. ‘celebrated the birth of the Church’, ‘received peace’, ‘prayed’, or simply, ‘I was in church’. Think each day what it means to be a witness for Jesus.

Use the suggestion above and/or click on the image below to download a PDF of this week's Live your faith suggestions. Subscribers to Children & Young People can also view their own Live your faith.
