The church is here to help people to become disciples of Jesus Christ. Ultimately, that’s what Christianity is all about.
FINDING OUT MORE
As well as our Sunday services, we offer three groups to help people find out more about Jesus Christ – and what it means to follow him. These groups will start from 23rd April 2018:
- Christianity Explored. A relaxed and informal way to explore some of the big questions in life and the person of Jesus Christ: Who was he? Why did he come? What does it mean to follow him? You won’t be asked to sing or pray and no prior knowledge is necessary! So whether exploring for the first time or you would just like to be refreshed in the basics again, please do come and join us. Further details available here. For information about the next course, starting on 23rd April, please contact the Parish Office.
- Life Explored. What’s the best gift God could give you? Life Explored is a seven session series featuring a combination of short films – shot around the world – and Bible interaction. It’s an exposé of the little gods that promise us so much happiness, yet deliver so little. As it explores the Bible story (creation, fall, redemption, new creation), Life Explored shows how our deepest desires for happiness can only be satisfied in one person, Jesus Christ. The best gift God can give us is himself. Further details available here. For information about the next course, starting on 24th April, please contact the Parish Office.
- Discipleship Explored. What’s the best love you’ve ever known? Discipleship Explored helps followers of Jesus turn up the gospel soundtrack to their lives. It goes beyond simply teaching the right moves – go to church, pray, read the Bible, share the gospel – and focuses on the music which drives discipleship: the love of Christ. The greatest love anyone can ever know.This eight-session journey through Paul’s letter to the Philippians is ideal for believers at any stage of the Christian life. It features brand-new documentary-style films and inspiring real-life stories from around the world, Bible studies and weekly reading plans, and a beautifully designed Handbook. Further details available here. For information about the next course, starting on 25th April, please contact the Parish Office.
An additional group, Leadership Explored, will help you find you out whether you could be using your spiritual gifts and passions in some form of leadership. Christian leadership is vital to the church. Many of the gifts God entrusts to His people can (and should) be used to lead aspects of church life. But how do you know if you are a leader ? Or if you might one day become a leader ? And what does it mean to lead, in a Christian context ? Leadership Explored is an opportunity to look together at some of the key passages in the Bible, and to consider how we might better serve the Lord and one another. For information about the next course, starting on 26th April, please contact the Parish Office.
