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 was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him.

You won't be asked to pray, sing or read aloud, and you can ask any questions you like. Or, if you prefer, you can just come along and listen. Christianity Explored has been around for over a decade now, and it's been designed to suit different age ranges and people.

Q. Who is Christianity Explored for?

A. 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.

Q. What goes on?

A. We usually start around 7pm (don't worry if you have to come straight from work - we don't mind you bringing food in!). The course is normally run in small groups of 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, and the evening ends at about 9pm. Of course, if you'd like, you're welcome to stick around a bit longer for a coffee to discuss any further issues you might have. And you can ask any question you want, at any time during the course.

Q. How long does the course last?

A. The course runs for 7 weeks, when you can explore other areas such as the Bible, the Holy Spirit, prayer and the church.

Q. Can I pull out if I want to?

A. Of course you can.

Q. How much does the course cost?

A. Nothing.

Q. Do I have to bring anything?

A. No, all course materials are provided.

Q. Is it 'churchy'?

A. We hope not. It's not a church service. There's no praying, singing, or clapping, and you won't be asked to read aloud.

Q. Am I going to get preached at?

A. Each evening includes a talk (or DVD) designed to explain an aspect of Christian belief and to stimulate discussion. Hopefully you'll find it challenging and amusing. The group leaders will facilitate discussion and try to answer questions.

Q. Do I have to speak in the group?

A. Not if you don't want to. You are welcome to come and just sit and listen.

Q. How is Christianity Explored different from other courses?

A. 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.

Q. Why is the course run?

A. 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.
