Come and join us for either weekend – or both, and explore these holy habits together. 20 spaces available on each weekend- so book early!

Holy Habits

The call to Christian discipleship is a call to adventure. Holy Habits explores this adventure through a rich mix of biblical material and inspiring stories. The life-giving, transforming role of ten habits seen in Acts 2 are re-imagined for personal and community life today. The ten habits are: biblical teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, prayer, sharing resources, serving, eating together, gladness and generosity, worship and the making of more disciples.

The discipleship adventure is described in the book Holy Habits written by Andrew Roberts, and produced by Malcolm Down Publishing




The Holy Habits book is further resourced by our partners BRF, who have produced a series of Holy Habits booklets.


Holy Habits has been read by individuals, shared in groups, and embraced by churches across the country and around the world as they have explored what it means to be a who life disciple of Jesus today. Why not join us here at Cliff, and explore these holy habits together?
