Hear, question and explore faith in one of our group courses.
Living the Questions
The poet Rilke speaks of ‘loving the questions themselves’ as a key part of our spiritual journey.
Living the Questions is a DVD-based educational series at St. Martin-in-the-Fields. It brings tough questions to the Christian tradition, and explores how to live faithfully into the answers.
Join a community of seekers, pilgrims, and skeptics as we come to terms with Christianity in the 21st Century. Dig into ethics, politics, the Bible, and belief from a progressive and challenging point of view. Share in the insights of leading theologians, pastors, philosophers, and scholars.
Each Sunday session meets after our 10.00am service, from 12.15-1.45pm, and comprises a 20 minute video followed by discussion and sharing in groups. Try out individual sessions, or join us for the entire series. You are also welcome to eat with us after the meeting.
Details of the next Living the Questions course will be available soon. For further details please contact the parish office.
Baptism and Confirmation
Each year courses are provided for both young people and adults who wish to prepare for Baptism and Confirmation, or for Confirmation alone if the person is already baptised. Courses take place on Sunday mornings from 12.15-1.15 (after the Parish Eucharist) and usually begin in March preparing for Confirmation by the Bishop which usually takes place in May or June. If you or your child would like to be baptised or confirmed, please let a member of the clergy team know. Registration takes place in January- February each year.
The Cloak is St Martin’s network of small groups. St Martin’s has a diverse and growing congregation and seeks to live in the light of the welcoming and hospitable charism of St Martin, who shared his cloak with a beggar. A larger congregation challenges us to think creatively about how to nurture each other in our faith and thread our community life together. The Cloak seeks to offer members of the congregation the opportunity to join a small group for prayer, bible study, fellowship and supporting each other in turning our faith into action in the world.
We currently have four groups, Central, South, West and North. If you are interested in joining a group, please download a flyer or pick one up from church and return it to the church office. We can’t guarantee to find you something immediately, but we will do our best, and may be able to suggest a group which you could visit to see what happens there. As the network grows, more spaces will open up.
For more information about the groups, please contact Revd Katherine Hedderly on 020 7766 1102 or via email.
