On this week’s podcast, the editor of the Church Times, Paul Handley, talks to the Bishop of Coventry, Dr Christopher Cocksworth, about the Living in Love and Faith (LLF) project, which he chaired.
The LLF project was set up in 2017 by the House of Bishops in an attempt to break the deadlock over same-sex relationships.
The committee behind the project has published what it calls “a suite of resources”, which includes videos, podcasts, an online learning hub for further reading, and a five-week course, which is being commended for study by parishes — for example, during Lent.
Central to all these is a 480-page book, Living in Love and Faith: Christian teaching and learning about identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage, which contains a distillation of the project’s findings
Bishop Cocksworth says: “One of the keys to the project is that we’re not just looking at single issues. We’re trying to look at the whole framework of relationships.”

Living in Love and Faith is produced by Church House Publishing at £19.99; Church Times Bookshop, £17.99.
