Being comes before doing. For Christians, spirituality and vocation are directly related.

The value of what we do in God’s service will flow directly from who we are. “We look at the outward appearance but God looks on the heart.”(1 Samuel 16.7).

Spirituality is concerned with the whole of our encounter with God, and how that encounter is experienced, nourished and expressed. Christian spirituality is centred on the knowledge of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, incarnate in the life of a community.

What matters to Jesus is what is in our hearts: our attitudes, motives, desires, values and beliefs, not just our outward religious observance. Spiritual formation begins with paying attention to the interior life- to the soul- and helping others to do so.

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is a relationship between a director and a directee which aims to discern how God is at work in the whole of life.  

Courses in spiritual direction and spirituality are also available at Sarum College in Salisbury.
