CCRS module in Evangelisation / Autumn 2022

Sion Catholic Community for Evangelism, in partnership with Brentwood Diocese, offers a 10-hour specialist CCRS module, Evangelisation, in Autumn 2022. 

IN PERSON: attend two study days 10 September and 12 November

OR

ONLINE: five two-hour sessions 7 pm – 9 pm on Thursday evenings
3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th November and 1st December via Zoom

This module is open to CCRS participants across England & Wales in lieu of taking one of the specialist modules in your local CCRS centre. The course is also open to anyone who simply wants to learn more about how and why to share the Good News of Jesus Christ!

In this module you will discover the Biblical roots and key Vatican documents about how and why we should share our faith with others; the history of how the Catholic Faith spread through the world and the new challenges of a post-Christian world which requires a “new evangelisation”. You will discover the usual thresholds of faith which believers pass through on the journey from “no religion” to being a committed member of the Church, the key pastoral challenges of sharing faith in today’s culture, and many tools which can help individuals, parishes and communities to become effective in sharing the Gospel message.

There are two ways to access this module:

IN PERSON
