Diocese of Winchester launches course to create 21st century disciples
The Diocese of Winchester has launched a new course to inspire teenagers to become disciples for the 21st century.
Launching to coincide with the start of Lent, the “Rhythms of Life” course is designed to encourage young people to reflect on the patterns and routines which shape their daily lives, and to support them to deepen their Christian faith.
The course is structured around five themes: identity, loving, living, serving and calling. It aims to support teenagers to explore who they are and how they can find opportunities to make positive changes in their own lives and the lives of others.
Launching the course, Paul Smith, Youth Adviser for the Diocese of Winchester’s School of Mission and creator of the course said:
“We all live such busy lives, with hundreds of distractions every day. It can be hard to work out which of the many things calling for our attention we should listen to. This course will help teenagers to cut through the noise and identify ways in which they can take positive steps to be disciples of Jesus in the twenty-first century and great friends to their peers at school or college. I hope young people across our Diocese will take the opportunity, in this season of Lent, to take some time out to reflect and deepen their relationships with God.”

The Diocese of Winchester has also produced a Lent Course for adults: “Sharing God’s Life”.
