The Holy Habits resources are an insightful and comprehensive manual for living in the way of Jesus in the 21st century: an imaginative, faithful and practical gift for the church that will sustain and invigorate our life and mission in a demanding world. The Holy Habits resources are potentially transformational for a church. I am delighted to commend this resource.
Revd Ian Adams, Mission Spirituality Adviser for Church Mission Society and Tutor in Pioneer Learning and PC3 Context-based Training at Ridley hall, Cambridge
The Holy Habits resources help weave the spiritual through everyday life. They’re a great tool that just get better with use. They help us grow in our desire to follow Jesus as their concern is formation not simply information.

Have you ever had to develop a new habit? This set of ten resources will enable churches and individuals to begin to establish ‘habits of faithfulness’ based on Acts 2:42-47. In the United Reformed Church, we are calling this process of developing discipleship, ‘Walking the Way: Living the life of Jesus today’ and I have no doubt that this comprehensive set of resources will enable us to do just that.
Revd Richard Church – Deputy General Secretary (Discipleship) United Reformed Church
Lots of people are getting into Holy Habits, which is wonderful. Here are some varied and rich resources to help further deepen our discipleship of Christ, encouraging and enabling us to adopt the life-transforming habits that make for following Jesus.
Revd Dr Martyn Atkins, Team Leader and Superintendent Minister, Methodist Central Hall, Westminster
The Holy Habits resource will help you, your church, your fellowship group, to engage in a journey of discovery about what it really means to be a disciple today. I know you will be encouraged, challenged and inspired as you read and work your way through each chapter, which you will find refreshing and illuminating. The chapters are so arranged as to give us lots to study together and pray about, and that can only be good as our churches today seek to bring about the kingdom of God. I can do no other than wholeheartedly to recommend it.
Revd Loraine Mellor, President of the Methodist Conference 2017/18
Jesus said, ‘If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them’ (John 13:17). To understand the disciplines of the Christian life without practising them habitually is like owning a fine collection of soap but never having a wash. The team behind Holy Habits knows this, which is why they have produced these excellent and practical resources. Use them, and by God’s grace you will grow in holiness. I commend them warmly!
Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool
The Holy Habits resources are a rich mine of activities for all ages to help change minds, attitudes and behaviours. I love the way many different people groups are represented and celebrated, and the constant reference to the complex realities of 21st-century life.
Lucy Moore, Founder of BRF’s Messy Church
