Discipleship is learning to live the way God wants us to live. It is all about following Jesus and learning to live by the wisdom of His Word.

Surprised by the Spirit is a new initiative of the national church to connect Anglicans across the country in conversation, prayer and discovery. Archbishop and Primate Linda Nicholls invited us to gather for conversation, and then to capture their "spark" (a learning, a question and a hope), in some form of media to be shared through the national website. In addition, within this diocese, we recommend this opportunity be used to prayerfully consider what the Spirit is inviting us to set aside and what to pick up.
