Developed over a period of 10 years, Christianity Explored is an informal course designed to help people investigate what Christianity is all about. It helps us look at what the Bible says about Jesus by looking at Mark’s account of Jesus’ life.
It explores who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him. It gets to grips with some basic issues of life and the relevance of the Christian faith.
The aim is simply to let the Bible speak for itself. You will find that the Bible has answers to the big questions of life.

Who is Christianity Explored for?

Christianity Explored is for anyone who would like to investigate Christianity informally with others. Whether you have previous experience of church, Christians and the Bible, or none at all, this course is for you. Everyone is welcome.
