Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored gives you time and space to think about the big questions of life and to explore the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith, Jesus Christ.

Over 7 weeks, guests will journey through the Gospel of Mark exploring the identity, mission and call of Jesus – who he is, why he came and what it means to follow him. There is plenty of time to ask questions and discuss the claims of Jesus and their implications for our lives. The basic structure of each evening is simple: 

  • an informal meal or snack, a short Bible study, a talk (either “live” or from the DVD)
  • a discussion based on the talk 

After completing  the Christianity Explored Course in the autumn of 2013, we will be holding a Launch Supper on Wednesday February 12th 2014, before running a repeat of this course. Farsi and Mandarin speakers will be catered for. Alongside this there will be two other follow-on courses:

       1.  Moving On: a series of informal evenings for people who are interested to learn about Jesus and Christian beliefs

      2.  That’s a Good Question: a series of stand-alone evenings which consider various topics about Christian belief and behaviour. The topics covered and their recordings are listed below:
