Who is Christianity Explored for?
Christianity Explored is for anyone who wants to investigate Christianity informally with a group of other people. Whether you have previous experience of Church, Christians or the Bible, or none at all, this course is for you. Everyone is welcome – from the most sympathetic Sunday schooler to the convinced atheist. We will respect your background, culture and beliefs. Tell us as little or as much about yourself as you feel comfortable.
What happens at the course?
The evening starts at 8pm with coffee. This is followed by a DVD presentation and a group discussion time. We will always finish by 9.30pm. The aim of the presentation is to give everyone present the chance to consider a topic about a core aspect of the Christian faith. The discussion that follows allows you some time to critique, respond and investigate things further.
When does it start?
Watch this space for dates for 2013!

Frequently asked questions
How long does the course last?
The course runs for 8 weeks.
Can I drop out if I want to?
Of course you can.
How much does the course cost?
Nothing. But there is a small charge (£2.00) for the course handbook.
Do I have to bring anything?
No, all course materials are provided.
Is it ‘churchy’?
We hope not. It’s not a church service. There’s no praying, singing, or clapping and you won’t be asked to read aloud.
Am I going to get preached at?
Each evening includes a talk [or DVD] designed to explain an aspect of Christian belief and to stimulate discussion. Hopefully you’ll find it challenging and amusing. The group leaders will facilitate discussion and try to answer questions.
Do I have to speak in the group?
Not if you don’t want to. You are welcome to come and just sit and listen.
How is Christainaity Explored different from other courses?
The focus on Mark’s Gospel, with its emphasis on who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him, makes Christianity Explore quite different.
Why is the course run?
Christians count it a real privilege to explain the truth and relevance of the Christian message. We don’t have all the answers but believe that we have exciting news to share about Jesus.
