Traditionally, the process of walking from darkness to light and following after Jesus is known as discipleship. At the Wellington Cathedral of St Paul, we believe that discipleship is a core aspect of Christian life. Our life together is a journey as we transition from old to new and grow in faith.
We also believe that discipleship isn’t a solo gig. We grow together in community, and we believe vibrant community is the best space to grow as disciples. We have a pattern of eating, fellowship and learning whenever we gather, and believe this provides a safe and informal opportunity to explore and grow in faith.
More broadly, the Wellington Diocese has embraced the 3DM discipleship movement as a way to guide our diocesan discipleship efforts, and we have found 3DM helpful in shaping our discipleship culture. It has given us a common language to guide our spiritual journey together. Though you’d most obviously recognise it in our children and families ministry areas - the choristers, children’s choir and our Sunday children’s worship group -- we’re creating a discipleship culture through all Cathedral ministries.
