Rhythm of Life

Everyone is invited to join our ‘Rhythm of Life’ venture. 

Inspired by the work of religious communities and a Bible verse from the Gospel of Matthew, the initiative offers an opportunity for Christians to re-align and keep Christ at the centre of our daily lives, through practical commitments, opportunities for mutual support and recommended resources. 

“As Christians, we believe Jesus should be at the heart of our rhythms of life, whatever our circumstances. This will have a far-reaching impact on our own wellbeing and the good of others – on our loving, living and learning.

I would like to invite you to join the diocesan ‘Rhythm of Life’ venture. This will involve individual commitments, accessing resources and mutual support. Some key areas will be given special attention: praying, encouraging, sharing, reflecting, celebrating, resting and creating.”

The Rt Revd Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds

Explore the Rhythm of Life DLP page where you can find further details and lots of suggested resources and courses for the seven areas participants can commit to, in order to keep Jesus at the heart of our daily rhythms. The journey can be done alone or together, with resources available for schools, children, young people, households and churches.

“Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

 Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)

Sign up for 50 daily devotions!

During the 50 days from Easter to Pentecost, you can subscribe to receive a daily devotion to help mark the 10th Anniversary of the Diocese. Each day a reflection, written by a different member of our diocese, will be emailed to you. As we journey through the Book of Acts, every reflection will be linked to one of the areas of focus in our Rhythm of Life initiative: encourage, share, create, pray, rest, celebrate, reflect. There will also be ideas for activities and links to good news stories. To sign up, click here.
