Who is Christianity Explored designed for?
Christianity Explored is for anyone who would like to investigate Christianity. The course is designed to give you a relaxed opportunity to study first hand the Christian claims. Whether you have previous experience with Christians and the Bible, or none at all, this course is for you. Everyone is welcome.
What should I expect?
This is not a church service. You won't be asked to pray, sing, or read aloud. Each session consists of small groups of 6-9 people around table. After briefly discussing the course material from the week before, a video is shown to explain an aspect of Christian belief and to stimulate discussion. Groups then discuss any questions that arise from the video. After some discussion, the session ends. Of course, if you'd like, you're welcome to stay and discuss any further questions you might have.
How long does the course last?
Usually 10 weeks, but it is sometimes shortened. The course also involves a day away when you can explore other topics such as church, the Holy Spirit, prayer, and the Bible.
What if I can't make every session?
That's okay. There's no pressure. We'd like to have you join us for as many as you like.
Does the course cost anything?
Not a thing. All the course marerials are provided. You can bring your Bible if you like, but don't worry if you don't own one.
