Walk By Faith aspires to build confidence in people, leading them to be active in the life and Mission of the Church in the 21st Century. This is achieved by fostering personal and spiritual formation, deepening the understanding of Church teaching, Scripture and integrating this with faith and life experience.


“Were not our hearts burning within us while He spoke to us on the road?” (Luke 24:32)

Participants may enrol for one, two or even three years. The course is open to people from every walk of life.

Previous study is not necessary. The learning process includes reflecting on your experience; discussion and reading; integrating this into your life and learning and making a personal response:. Becoming ‘fit for mission’.

Each year of the programme is divided into 4-6 modules, each of which takes about 6 weeks of study. A year group may be divided into several tutorial groups for ease of meeting and discussion. Each group has a tutor.


  • Each module begins with a day retreat / seminar and is followed by a tutorial.
  • Participants receive a work-book and a book of readings to assist them in their study.
  • Assignments enable participants to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways.

The programme concludes in Year 3 with an outreach project which may be done by participants individually or in groups.

Time Commitment: It is suggested that participants set aside some time each week for course work in order to receive the most benefit from their reading and reflection.

Cost: The Walk By Faith Programme in the Auckland Diocese in 2017 is a subsidised cost for each participant of $50.00. This cost applies for each year level.
