He is the Christ. The king who God himself had promised to send, who would put everything right by setting up a kingdom of justice and love. He’s also the Son of God. God himself, entering the world as a human being. Jesus proved who he was by what he did. He healed people. He calmed storms. He raised the dead. By doing these things, the king was giving a glimpse of life in his kingdom. A perfect place, with no suffering, fear or death. It’s the world we all want.
You may have no previous experience of Christianity. You may hardly ever have set foot inside a church. Or you might just want to brush up on the basics. Whatever your situation, the Christianity Explored course is an opportunity to engage personally with the claims of Jesus Christ, the person at the very heart of Christianity.
Christianity Explored gives you time and space to consider the big questions of life and to explore the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ. Our aim is to help people investigate Christianity in a relaxed and accessible way, and we encourage guests to come with all of their questions. We can't cover everything in just a few weeks, but many people have found the course to be a good introduction to the big issues.
You will also get a chance to take away and read one of the eyewitness accounts of Jesus' life over the duration of a course, and there are options for further investigation afterwards if you find you are still interested.
We run Christianity Explored courses at different times during the year. See our calendar to find the dates of the next course.
Visit our resource library to find talks, videos and more about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. This Christianity Explored talk series describes the basics of the Christian faith including who Jesus is and why he had to die.
Our Life course is ideal for friends with very little understanding of the Christian faith. Most who attend tend to be from East Asia, however all are welcome. The evening includes a series of short talks in English and discussions around tables, with one group in Mandarin. Over six weeks we look at the first four chapters of John’s account of the life of Jesus. By the end, many are keen to continue reading John one to one.
