Living & Telling

Living & Telling is our flagship training resource, designed to encourage and inspire you to help people discover Jesus together.

Now available to run with your group online, this 10-part, video-led training series is for churches and groups who want to learn how to get better at discussing faith naturally in conversation and throughout everyday life – and best of all, it’s FREE!

If you are a Christian, and find yourself reticent to talk about your faith (or even if you are ready and raring to go), Living & Telling is for you. We believe that helping people discover Jesus can be done by all kinds of Christians, so this course is suitable for everyone.

The Bible says Christians should “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have, with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15). Being prepared includes training. Living & Telling will help you prepare to talk about Jesus and have conversations about faith in normal, natural ways that aren’t uncomfortable or annoying! The course is theologically robust and intensely practical, so you’ll be getting into the Bible but also doing what it says.
