Developed over 10 years, 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 is, what His aims are, 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.
What makes Christianity Explored Distinctive?
There are three main ingredients that make Christianity Explored different. First, the course focuses on Mark's Gospel. Throughout the course, participants are encouraged to study the book of Mark in their group, and explore the book on their own. Secondly, the course repeatedly explores the problem of sin. Participants are gently and respectfully shown what Jesus has to say about the human heart, God's wrath, judgment and hell so that the sheer wonder of God's unmerited love can be fully grasped. Thirdly, participants are given time and space to consider the cost of becoming a Christian before being given the opportunity to begin following Christ.
