Christian Formation – The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

There are a number of groups that offer ways for us to explore our faith and provide a deeper understanding of scripture and prayer. Groups offer different formats but all are inclusive and welcoming.

In a relaxed and welcoming environment we journey together and reflect on different aspects of the Catholic faith including how God makes himself known to us and the life Christ shares with us through the Sacraments of the Church.

Sharing Our Faith

In John’s Gospel, Jesus invites two of his disciples, Philip and Nathaniel, to ‘come and see’ and this describes the nature of the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) Programme which we refer to as Sharing our Faith.

The programme is aimed at adults wishing to explore and find out more about what it means to become a full member of the Catholic Church. Through teaching, sharing and questioning and discussing, the group is able to gain a greater understanding of Catholic beliefs and practices. These discussions are intended to deepen their personal faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.
