St Mary's Church Upton

Making a difference, wherever we are, as we share Faith For Life in Christ


Compass is a resource designed to help our church engage with Christian Discipleship Together.

Compass is not about head knowledge, rather it is about realistic, real and relevant discipleship.

Compass was first published a few years ago. Through the Equipping Hub it has been refreshed and we are now producing a new set of Compass notes.

The headings are based around our vision themes. A new page or two will be printed on a roughly monthly basis. They will be handed out on Sundays, be available in church and on this website.

Compass is best used in twos and threes with Compass Companions.

We encourage people to find their own Companions from within Small Groups, or other groups and congregations to meet up and talk through the sheets.
