What is Stepwise?

Stepwise is the discipleship development programme from the United Reformed Church. It is for everyone: all ages, shapes and sizes – including you!

If you are keen to reflect on, and develop your Christian faith, ready to be stimulated and challenged, and want to make a difference in your own life and the lives of others, then Stepwise is what you’re looking for.

Stepwise is shaped around your strengths and needs, in the context of your own community and church. It emphasises the importance of learning from your daily life – wherever you are and whoever God might be calling you to be.  It is designed for people of all ages and backgrounds and aims to deepen your discipleship and help you to grow in faith as you walk the way of Jesus.

Two short films about Stepwise

The first film is a short video which includes a collection of stories from participants and churches about the difference Stepwise has made to their lives and communities. This update was created for the URCs General Assembly in July 2021.

The second short film features some of the people who’ve taken part in the programme.
