Eucharist imageThe Birmingham Circuit, a newly formed circuit in the British Methodist Birmingham District, launched a new two-year discipleship programme on 17 May 2015. The programme, called Ten Holy Habits, focuses on ten practices of the early Church, described in Acts 2: 42-47, as a model for identity and vision.

The creators of the programme hope that it will "challenge the culture of our circuit and give everyone an opportunity to grow in their relationship with God". Hear more about how the programme came about.

What are the Ten Holy Habits of Acts 2?

At the end of Acts chapter 2, we see a passage sometimes headed “The Fellowship of Believers”. It talks about the early Church and the way it went about living out its ministry. This has been summarised by some as the "ten holy habits". These are:

  • Biblical teaching
  • Fellowship
  • Breaking of bread
  • Prayer
  • Sharing of resources & giving
  • Service to the poor & marginalised
  • Eating together
  • Gladness & generosity
  • Worship
  • Making more disciples
