United Reformed Church – Walking The Way

Walking the Way: Living the life of Jesus today

This is the United Reformed Church’s exciting focus on lifelong Christian discipleship and mission and moves beyond a set of programmes into the world where each step we take is accompanied by Jesus, eventually bringing about an emerging culture change in the Church and society.

Walking the Way explores what it means to actively follow and learn from – and to be eventually transformed by – Jesus.

URC – GEAR (Group for Evangelism & Renewal)
