Pilgrim is a major teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England.
A course for the twenty-first century, Pilgrim offers an approach of participation, not persuasion. Enquirers are encouraged to practise the ancient disciplines of biblical reflection and prayer, exploring key texts that have helped people learn and grow in faith since the early Church.
Assuming little or no knowledge of the Christian faith, Pilgrim can be used at any point on the journey of discipleship and by every tradition in the Church of England.
Written by Stephen Cottrell, Steven Croft, Paula Gooder and Robert Atwell - with contributions from a wide ranger other leading Anglican figures - Pilgrim has been commissioned by the House of Bishops as a major contribution to the Church's efforts to grow - numerically and spiritually - in the coming decade.
Pilgrim is made up of two stages, each containing four six-session books accompanied by a leader's guide:
- Follow introduces the Christian faith for newcomers or those exploring confirmation or affirming their faith
- Grow aims to develop a deeper level of discipleship
