Rule of Life

Welcome to our pages on our Rule of Life.

As we in the Diocese of Liverpool ask God for a Bigger Church to make a Bigger Difference we are encouraging everyone to deepen their relationship with God. We have a simple tool to help with this which we call the Rule of Life. With a tradition rooted in monastic worshipping communities, it helps us form our spirituality by encouraging us to follow an inner journey of reflection and an outer journey of service.

Based around six concepts we are asking every disciple to Pray: Read and Learn on the inner journey and Tell: Serve and Give on the outer journey. We also want every disciple in our diocese to Bring One Friend into a worshipping community and Do Ten Things in the service of God. 

For some, their rule of life may involve being called by God to a specific ministry and our Life Call pages help you explore your vocation

On these pages you can

  • Understand what it is to be a Christian
  • Learn how to follow the Rule of Life
  • Find out more about Bringing One Friend and Doing Ten Things
  • Discover your vocation through our Directions course and Life Call pages
  • Pray daily through the Cycle of Prayer

We hope these pages help but if you can't find what you need then email centralservices@liverpool.anglican.org for more support and advice
