Directions - discover your Christian calling

Making It Easier > > Encourage vocations > Directions

Directions is an exciting course for people wishing to discover and grow in their Christian service and understand what God is calling them to do.

As a committed Christian are you trying to find out how you could be serving God?

In the Diocese of Liverpool, we are asking God for a bigger church to make a bigger difference - more people knowing Jesus, more justice in the world.

If you’re not sure how you should or could respond to this, then Directions is the course for you. It will help you explore your Christian calling and equip you for the next stage of your journey.

Directions offers teaching, group discussions, personal reflection and focussed exploration over 15 sessions. Click here to find out more about what’s involved. 

Directions is for all kinds of people exploring different ways of serving God in the church and the world. It’s not just about ordination or serving God in the church. Click here to find out more about who Directions is for and read stories from some people who have done Directions and where it has led them. 

Directions is not a Christian basics course. You’ll need to be familiar with the Bible and have experience of life as a Christian, as the course applies biblical and Christian thinking about how you live in the church and the world.

The Liverpool Diocese Rule of Life tells us all Christians are called to Pray, Read, Learn and sent to Tell, Serve, Give. Our Directions course is designed to help people grow in their inward journey of praying, reading and learning and to explore where and how God is sending them to tell, serve and give.

Like many Christians, you may have a sense of God’s call but not be sure what that call is to or how to respond?

If that’s you then Directions is the course for you, find out more here.

Debbie Ellison, Vocations Officer said "We are coming up to the ninth year of running the course and each year it surpasses our expectations how God brings people together from across the area and helps them to discover together the next steps of their vocational story. The course is not a Christian basics or a nurture course or just for people exploring ordination, it focuses on helping those who are Christians reflect on who God is calling them to be and where He wants them to be. Each year people discover something new about themselves and their relationship with God. Some are helped to continue in their current places of life and ministry with new confidence and conviction for mission. Others find something entirely new including things they hadn't dared to dream."
