Christianity Explored



Exploring Christianity

If you’re beginning to explore the Christian faith for yourself, you’re really welcome at any of our churches services or events.  At our Sunday services, especially the 11.00 service in Sileby, there are always people who aren’t committed followers of Jesus who are exploring faith, so you’ll be in good company!

Once or twice a year we run Christianity Explored sessions. 

Christianity Explored does exactly what it says on the tin.  It’s an informal way of  investigating the Christian faith.  It explores who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him.  No prior knowledge or faith is assumed.

You're not asked to pray, sing, or read aloud, and you can ask any question you like. Or, if you prefer, you can come along and simply listen.

What happens at Christianity Explored?

We begin by having supper together.  It’s an important part of each session, a chance to relax and get to know others as well as being delicious! 

At each session, there is a short DVD (lasting about 20 minutes) where some aspect of the Christian faith is presented.  Then, in small groups, there’s the chance to discuss, debate or even disagree with what has been said.  No comment is out of bounds! 

Christianity Explored looks primarily at the eye-witness account of Jesus’ life written by Mark.  Everyone coming to Christianity Explored is given a copy of Mark’s gospel as well as the Christianity Explored handbook and is encouraged to read the gospel over the weeks.

How long?

Christianity Explored lasts for eight weeks.  If you are unsure about committing for so long, why not come to the first two and see if you like it?  If you’d prefer not to continue, no-one will hassle you.

What's the Cost?

Christianity Explored is entirely free.  There is the opportunity to contribute to the cost of running the sessions if you would like to, but if you prefer not to that is absolutely fine.

What next?

We run the Christianity Explored course at least once a year.  If you’d like more information, please contact the Curate, Duncan Beet.  Further information is also available on the Christianity Explored web site.

Other events

We hold other events that are particularly designed for those wanting to explore the Christian faith.  When there’s one coming up, we’ll post it here.
