  • Christianity Explored Open or Close

    Who?

    Do you want to investigate the claims of the Christian faith? Christianity Explored is an informal course for people who’d like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics. It explores who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him. You’re not asked to pray, sing or read aloud, and you can ask any question you like. Or, if you prefer you can come along and simply listen.

    When?

    The course lasts for 7 weeks (usually from 7.30-9.00 pm one evening a week) and runs several times a year. Daytime courses are also available.

    Where?

    The venue is advertised when a new course starts.

    What?

    After refreshments have been served, we watch a 20 minute DVD covering topics such as Who is Jesus?, Why did he come?, Why did he die?, How can God accept us?, What does it mean to follow him? Afterwards there is an opportunity to discuss questions which arise from the DVD.

    Cost?

    There is no charge for this course.
