Sustain them, O Lord, in your Holy Spirit. Give them an inquiring and discerning heart, the courage to will and to persevere, a spirit to know and to love you, and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works. Amen.

This prayer is said for people when they are baptised for we know that the life of faith is one of change and growth.  At Christ Church Cathedral, we offer a variety of opportunities throughout the year for adults (baptized or not) to explore their faith in an open and creative atmosphere.  Together, we reflect on our own experiences, study Scripture, and listen to what theologians and scholars have to teach us.

We don’t promise to provide easy answers but we do promise good company in the asking of good questions!

Each year, there are opportunities for adults to deepen their faith through the study of central topics of Christian teaching.  These courses also serve as preparation for adults and older teens seeking to make a public commitment through baptism, confirmation, reception to the Anglican communion, or reaffirmation of their faith.

A Deeper Well is a committed small group uniting intellectual and spiritual formation for those who wish to grow in the practice of their faith. For information, contact Deborah.

The Come & See class offers space for those who wish to re-engage or re-think their faith, and also prepares interested persons for confirmation. This class is forming now, so if you are interested, contact Deborah. Please include times of the week that might work for you.

Please contact Deborahfor more information about the next course of study.

Special educational opportunities are offered every year during the seasons of Advent and Lent to help us prepare for Christmas and Easter, the major feasts of the Christian calendar.

At the moment, the Cathedral offers several Bible study groups which meet regularly.
