What is Stepwise?

Stepwise is an integral part of Walking the Way – living the life of Jesus today, the United Reformed Church’s focus on whole-life discipleship and mission.

Wessex Synod is delighted that Stepwise is now part of the life of the Synod with people having completed the first stream, while others are just about to start. A Synod Stepwise Advocacy Group has been

formed and they have been working hard to make sure that all the procedures are put in place to ensure that Stepwise has been able to happen through the last 18 months.

Stepwise is a programme of learning and discipleship development for everyone – including you! – whether you are exploring and enriching your personal faith life, discerning where God’s call on your life may be leading, preparing for a new direction, or developing a specific role within your community or church.

Our principal services will be on the 19th December at 6.30pm, and again on 24th December at 4.30pm. As with last year there will be no service at IW on 25th December, however there will be a Christmas Day service at Avenue St Andrews URC at 10am, to which all are invited.

On 26th December we will be having a service of favourite carols. If you have a carol or reading that you would like to be included, please let me know by 19th December. It would also be good if you could include your reasons as to why your carol is particularly special to you. Our friends from Avenue St Andrews are being invited to come and join us on this occasion.
