CofE vows to put discipleship at core

It's produced a new document looking at how it'll help individuals develop in the faith ahead of a discussion at the February meeting of the General Synod.

The Bishop of Sheffield, Rt Revd Steven Croft, said: "Discipleship is right at the centre of who we're called to be as the people of God.... the aim of the paper is to start a new conversation about Christian discipleship right across the Church of England and to deepen that conversation."

"The Church is called to be and to become a community of missionary disciples. Discipleship is not just about learning, it's also about service and being equipped for God's service in the world as Christ sends us out.

"And growing the Church is about making disciples in obedience to Jesus's commission in Matthew 28.

"Serving the common good is about equipping every Christian disciple to make a difference, in the wider world, in their workplace, in their family, in their community, so that the Church as a whole is a blessing to God's world and a channel of his grace and love."
