Introduction to Christianity

There is nothing more important than knowing God personally. We run various courses for people who are interested in doing just that. Whether you are someone who wants to take a first look at Christianity and ask questions, or someone who wants to develop in their faith, we would love to help you.

You don’t need to know anything about the Bible and you won’t be asked to read aloud, pray or sing. Our aim is to help you investigate Christianity in a relaxed and accessible way.

Hope Explored – What’s the best future you could ever imagine? Hope Explored is an informal and relaxed three part course for anyone who wants to find hope, peace and purpose in life. The course is free and it’s open to anyone. You can ask any question you like, or you can just sit and listen. The course looks at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel, and shows that Christianity is about real hope: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about the present. Whoever you are and whatever you’re thinking, Hope Explored is a place for you to discover the hope of a future that is better than you imagine.

Christianity Explored – a seven part course that gives you time and space to consider the big questions of life and to explore the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ. The course investigates key lessons from the gospel of Mark. Christianity Explored reveals the identity of Jesus, our own need of a saviour and how the work of Jesus can lead to being right with God. An excellent introduction to the Christian faith and useful for those who are unfamiliar with what the Bible says.

Life Explored – a seven-part course that explores our longing for happiness. In each session, we watch a couple of short films and pause after each to discuss some important questions. How can we make the most of life as it is? How can we look forward to our own future, no matter what? Is there any meaning to our suffering? Life Explored is a safe space for you to bring your questions about life, happiness and Jesus. The trailer is available on YouTube at: Each session comprises two short videos, two short Bible readings, and time for discussion. The first video is a word-less, dramatised story, which raises themes and ideas that then prompt an open discussion about what God is like (good, generous, joyful, life-giving, etc.). The second half of each session picks up these themes with a Bible reading, an explanatory video, and a few questions.

We offer different courses at different times in the year, so please get in touch if you’re interested in any of these. Or if you prefer, come along to one of our Sunday meetings.
