Living in Love and Faith

Living in Love and Faith logo

The Church of England has published a landmark set of resources drawing together the Bible, theology, science and history with powerful real-life stories as it embarks on a new process of discernment and decision-making on questions of identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage. The product of three years’ work by more than 40 people, led by the Bishop of Coventry, Living in Love and Faith includes a 480-page book, a series of films and podcasts, a course and an online library of other publications, in what is thought to be the most extensive work in this area by any faith group in the world. 

Bishop Richard has shared his thoughts on the launch of this landmark publication in an open statement to the Diocese. He is encouraging us to engage with the resources as part of a formal and planned consultation and discernment process in late Spring 2021, when he hopes we will all be able to meet in person again. All the resources can be found on the Living in Love and Faith website.

The resources include:

  • 1 book containing 5 parts, 20 ‘encounters’ 
  • 17 story films 
  • 16 podcasts 
  • 1 course for groups – 5 sessions – videos and booklet 
  • 1 library with 323 resources, of which 61 are written by LLF group members for the LLF project
