We started the year with a small group attending a Christianity Explored course  in a church members home.

A larger group meeting was held on Wednesday nights in April and May in the Annexe at Fountain Primary school. Each evening started with a meal and included a DVD and time of discussion on issues around our Christian beliefs.

We will be running further Christianity Explored groups in the future, if you would like to attend, or to find out more, please contact Steve Wright, on

What is Christianity Explored?

Christianity Explored is a popular course run up and down the country 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.

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?

Each meeting starts with a meal. Then, after briefly discussing the course material from the week before, there is a talk or DVD on the theme for that week and to close the groups discuss any questions that have arisen. The meeting mormally last around 2 hours but 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. We’ll probably have between 6 to 10 guests attending the course.

After an introductory week, we look at the following themes:

Jesus – who was he?

Jesus – why did he come?

Jesus – his death

What is grace?

Jesus – his resurrection

What is a Christian?

Why is the course run?

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