As the people of God, we are called to live out our faith through the week, as well as when we gather together to worship on a Sunday.

#MoreThanSunday helps churches encourage an active and vibrant faith during the week, seeking to build confidence in showing and sharing our faith with all those we encounter.

#MoreThanSunday is our response to the national everyday faith movement, and the Rt Revd Dr David Walker, Bishop of Manchester writes,

“#MoreThanSunday is the Diocese of Manchester’s approach to inspiring discipleship, the living out of what it means to be baptised and to follow Jesus Christ day by day.”

#MoreThanSunday supports our diocesan mission goals of growing, nurturing and serving by:

  1. Inspiring church congregations to make stronger connections between what happens at their Sunday/main worship services and how they live out their faith during the week.
  2. Enhancing and working alongside existing discipleship training programs as part of enabling everyone to deepen their faith together.
  3. Increasing the confidence of everyone in our churches by encouraging them to talk more openly about their faith with each other.
  4. Equipping everyone in our churches to share their faith more effectively with others in their everyday places, settings and communities.

This year's #MoreThanSunday programme runs from January to July.

If you are interested in taking part, or would like more information, please contact Kim Morgan-Jones, Head of Lay Development and Discipleship, at

Shift 2 - Prayers and Intercessions

Prayer is the bedrock of all that we do and praying for our everyday lives is as important as praying every day.


Shift 3 - Faith at Home

Our vision is to see conversations about faith happening as naturally as those we have about what to have for tea, who’s turn it is to clear the table or who last had the TV controller!

Shift 4 - Small Groups

One of the best ways to feed ourselves spiritually is through starting or joining a small group. In small groups we learn together as we discover more about the Bible and grow in our knowledge of God.

Shift 5 - Commissioning and collaboration

All Christians are called, all have a ‘vocation’, and it is vital to develop practices that help to recognise, celebrate and reinforce this. Some churches commission people for ministries and certain roles in the church, but it’s enormously powerful to also commission people for ministries beyond the church, in the contexts of their #MoreThanSunday lives.


Shift 6 - Communication and Information

It is important that we engage with new forms of communication where possible to share the Good News. Our communities need to hear about the amazing God we worship and how much he cares about every aspect of their lives.
