Reflections on Reading Living in Love and Faith

For the past eight months, SCM members, trustees and staff have been meeting regularly to read and discuss the Living in Love and Faith resources. Here, members of the group reflect on their experience.

We started reading the Living in Love and Faith book back when it was published in November and have spent the past eight months reflecting on it as a group. The process has been a challenging, yet engaging time, which allowed us to understand our thoughts and feelings about our faith, our experiences, and our relationship with the wider Church.

Waiting in Hope: A Look Back at the National Gathering

Two weeks ago (and three months later than originally scheduled), 25 students and SCM staff arrived in Ledbury to reflect on the theme of Waiting in Hope through talks, worship and Lego.

From the moment of my arrival, it was clear we would be having a good time together. Many of the attendees had already arrived, and were playing games outside. This spirit of fun and community continued throughout the weekend, with people playing sports and chatting outside between sessions and in the evenings.
