Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, others and all creation. In this process, we are transformed into the people God wants us to be. The Episcopal Church has gracefully articulated how we answer God’s call in this Charter for Lifelong Christian Formation, a resolve of General Convention passed in 2009.
St. Augustine’s offers a variety of formation opportunities, both clergy and lay led, both with a Biblical focus and looking at other topics through the lense of our faith. Our programme for the first half of 2017 is here: Adult Christian Formation 2017 (1-6)
