The Gift – a life in the Spirit course

Last Summer I was privileged to be in the Olympic Stadium in Rome to hear Pope Francis speak to more than 50,000 Catholics belonging Charismatic Renewal.

It was there that he gave a clear mission statement when he said: “I expect you to share Baptism in the Spirit with the whole Church.”

Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a simple, life-transforming gift of renewal that 150 million Catholics worldwide have experienced.

In today’s world many are looking for a deeper spirituality and are open to investigating this within in a non-threatening, relaxed environment.

To meet these needs and in obedience to the Holy Father, Catholic Faith Exploration (CaFE) has produced a TV quality course for parishes, groups and individuals to explore the grace of living life in the Spirit.

It's a six-session, fun and practical resource presented by David Payne, Michelle Moran, Charles Whitehead and Jenny Baker to a lively and diverse studio audience. This is complemented by the testimonies of Catholics explaining how the Holy Spirit helps them in their daily lives.

It also includes a powerful movie presentation of the Cross by the Billy Graham Organisation as an optional extra session.

The resource – available either as a DVD or download – comes equipped with full web support, with a short trailer for potential guests, training and other resources for leaders. Watch the video below for a taster, or go to for more details.


What people have said about The Gift course

"I warmly commend this resource."

Archbishop Kevin McDonald.


"Being able to share in small groups was such a great way to explore what we'd heard and a great model for learning, exploring & discussing"

Pippa - The Gift Guest


"This is also dynamite for students and youth ministry in general"

Fr Matt Anscombe


"The course was a good experience for me. The small groups for sharing and the anointing of the Spirit was a powerful experience. The different talks especially the talk on the Holy Spirit was really inspiring."

Chris – The Gift Guest


Of course, The Gift is only one in a line of Life in the Spirit courses and resources used powerfully over the years but it is modern and fresh, of the highest quality and ready on a plate to serve the Church. Despite the high production costs we have been able to subsidise the price down to only £25.95 for a DVD pack or £19.95 for a download version, with further subsidies available for individuals and very small groups - please call for details.
