Spirituality at Work


For many of us, it can feel like there are no other Christians in our workplace - and that no-one in our church family understands what it is like to do our job and try to remain true to God at the same time. 

The resources below provide some options to support you as you seek to involve God in your daily life.

  • After Sunday – at the heart of After Sunday’s approach is the idea of being the church dispersed in the world. After Sunday sees the church in two modes - Gathered and Dispersed. After Sunday focuses on providing support to the church in its dispersed mode – this is where the disciple spends 98% of his or her time – being the church in the world.
  • Being a Disciple at Work – this course has been designed by Peterborough Diocese for use in parishes. It is designed to be run in three sessions and is freely available to download.
  • God at Work – This 6-session course is based on Ken Costa’s book of the same name, each session being designed to be completed within an hour to enable it to be run in the workplace as well as in other settings. It's specifically focussed on work outside of the home.
  • Transform Work UK – This is a national organisation helping to mobilise Christians to live out their faith in the world of work and the world at large. This is done primarily through supporting workplace fellowship groups.
  • LICC - the London Insitute of Contemporary Christianity has created resources designed specifically with workplace groups in mind, to enable you and your colleagues to explore the challenges and opportunities you face in your organisations. 
  • Everyday Faith - Everyday Faith is a Church of England discipleship campaign offering 21 days of reflections, prayers and stories to help you find and follow God in everyday life.
