New online class from the Church of Ireland Theological Institute: Spirituality for Christian Discipleship


The Church of Ireland Theological Institute.

The Church of Ireland Theological Institute has announced a new initiative aimed at offering resources for Christian discipleship to lay people.

Over four weeks in June, institute staff will offer a one-hour virtual class online.

This four-week course offers resources for your spiritual life and opportunities to learn new practices of Christian discipleship to resource your faith during social distancing.

Weekly meetings through Zoom led by members of CITI’s academic staff will include a presentation and interactive discussion about practices of Christian spirituality and will conclude with an exercise or activity for you to try at home.

By gathering, praying and learning with the same group of Christians weekly, you will also receive encouragement and fellowship and offer these gifts to others.

The course will take place on Monday mornings between 11am and 12 noon beginning 8th June.

For those interested, email to sign up.

When you sign up, you will be given an easy link to enter the online classroom. The class is free during Covid 19 restrictions but is limited to 25 participants.

The subject areas covered are as follows;

8 June: Knowing God: An Invitation to the Journey of Discipleship led by Revd Canon Dr Maurice Elliott

22 June: Spirituality and Failure: Seeing Ourselves in a New Light led by Revd Dr Patrick McGlinchey
