Life Explored

Life Explored is a new seven week course, designed to be an introduction to the message of the Bible and the good news of Jesus.

You won't be 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. Life Explored is for anyone who wants to investigate Christianity informally with a group of other people. Whether you have previous experience of Church, Christians and 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 goes on?

We will meet from 3:45-5:00 pm on Sunday afternoons in the church hall, each week there will be a short video and some discussion time based around it. Refreshments will also be provided.

How long does the course last?

Seven weeks.

Can I pull out if I want to?

Of course you can.

Do I have to pay, or bring anything?

No, the course is free, and all materials are provided.

Is it 'churchy'? Am I going to get preached at?

We don't think so. After all, if that's what you'd like, you can join us in our Sunday services! Life Explored is different. Each session includes a video designed to explain an aspect of Christian belief and to stimulate discussion. Hopefully you'll find it challenging and interesting. 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.

What is Life Explored based on?

In Life Explored, each session looks at a different aspect of God's character. Instead of giving your our opinion of who God is, we aim to simply explore what the Bible says about Him.

Why is the course run?

We count it a real privilege to explain the truth and relevance of the Christian message. We don't have all the answers to every question, but believe that we have exciting news to share about Jesus Christ, and we'd like to share it with you.
