Almost 300 people have joined Bishop Tony’s invitation to Follow Me – a series of five evening teachings in Wakefield Cathedral to explore faith and discipleship. The sessions seek to better equip ourselves and our churches to serve Jesus
Launched last October, the first session, which explored fresh ways to read the Bible, attracted an audience of over 130 and the second saw almost 150 people come together to listen to Gordon Dey speak about Jesus-shaped people and take part in the discussion.
The third session is on 26 February and will be led by Angela Ashwin who will explore the theme “How do I pray?” Angela Ashwin is a writer on spirituality and a speaker and retreat leader. Her latest book is Faith in the Fool: Risk and Delight in the Christian Adventure.
Commenting on the 'Follow Me' series Bishop Tony says: “When I was 13 it was those words in Matthew of Jesus calling the first disciples that began my vocation to be a priest and the call to follow Jesus is relevant today as it was to Peter and the others.
“In the new Wakefield Area of the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales, I would like to invite everyone to join me to explore together how we can deepen our understanding of what it means to be a disciple in this season of church,” he said.
Sessions start with Evensong (optional) at 6.30pm.
Food will be served from 7.15pm.
Follow Me teaching sessions run from 7.45pm until 9.15pm.
