Exploring Christianity?

Do you have some questions about the Christian faith? Perhaps you’re wondering whether there’s more to life. Our Christianity Explored and Alpha courses are a great place to start.

We run a variety of courses to help you learn who Jesus is and what the Christian faith is all about. Come along to ask your questions, engage in discussion and find out why we think the Bible is great.

What courses are on?

We run Alpha and Christianity Explored courses because we think they provide a great introduction to the Christian faith and give you the opportunity to ask the questions that are bugging you.

What is Christianity Explored?

The Christianity Explored course gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. A huge variety of people, with different experiences and backgrounds, and different views and beliefs, come on the CE course.  The course is seven weeks long and is a great opportunity to explore what life is all about. Enjoy a good meal, a short video and time for questions and discussion. 

What is the Alpha course?

Alpha is a non-pressurised, fun and informative course. It is a place to share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life. The course is designed primarily for those who don’t go to church or who haven’t been to church for a long time and are interested in the Christian faith.

All questions are welcome on both courses. They are designed for people to freely ask their tough questions about life and the Christian faith, exploring what the Christianity is all about.

The courses aim to be a low-pressure and non-threatening experience. If you don’t feel that the course is for you, you are under no obligation to return.

What should I do if I’m interested?
