Local Missions - Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week course for people who'd like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics. Looking at Mark's gospel, it explores who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him.

Christianity Explored is primarily 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.

You're not asked to pray, sing, or read aloud, and you can ask any question you like. Or, if you prefer, you can simply come along and listen.

Courses come in various shapes and sizes.

The material is so flexible that it is now being used in countless different formats including very small groups and even one to one, and in settings as diverse as homes, prisons and schools.A typical evening starts with a bite to eat or maybe just a few cups of coffee, then there's a chance to look at the Bible for yourself and ask any questions that you have. There is a short talk, or the DVD, and then a chance to chat about what you've just heard.
