Christianity Explored is an informal course for people who’d like to know more about Christianity or just brush up on the basics. It explores who Jesus was, what His aims were, and what it means to follow Him.

You won’t be asked to pray, sing or read aloud. You can ask any questions you like or, if you prefer, you can just come along and listen.

Christianity Explored has been around for many years and is designed to suit different age ranges and people.

We regularly run the Christianity Explored course, please get in touch below

Who is Christianity Explored for?

Christianity 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?

The course is normally run in several groups of six to nine people, and after briefly discussing the course material from the week before, there is a talk or DVD on the theme for that week. Then the groups discuss any questions that have arisen.

You’re welcome to stick around a bit longer for a coffee to discuss any further issues you might have. You can ask any question you want, at any time during the course.

How long does the course last?

The course runs for 7 weeks.

Can I pull out if I want to?

There is no pressure if you want to pull out of the course.

How much does the course cost?


Do I have to bring anything?

No, all course materials are provided.

Is it ‘churchy’?

It’s an informal group discussion, not a church service: there’s no praying or singing and you won’t be asked to read out loud.

Am I going to get preached at?

Each week there will be a talk or DVD which will explain an aspect of Christian belief and will hopefully stimulate discussion. We aim to make the evening enjoyable but also challenging. Group leaders will facilitate discussions and try to answer any 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.

How is Christianity Explored different from other courses?

The focus on Mark’s Gospel, with its emphasis on who Jesus was, what His aims were, and what it means to follow Him, makes Christianity Explored quite different.

Why is the course run?

Christians count it a real privilege to explain the truth and relevance of the Christian message. We don’t have all the answers but believe that we have exciting news to share about Jesus Christ.
