Each term Eden runs a short course aimed at people who are seeking to find out more about the Christian faith. On these courses you can learn who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him today.
Who are these courses for?
Explore is for anyone who has questions about Christianity, Jesus and the Bible – and who would like to find out answers to them. It doesn’t matter if you have never been in a church building, have just started coming to church, or if you’ve been going to church for years. Whatever your circumstances, if you would like to find out more about Christianity and what it means to be a Christian, then these courses are for you.
What goes on?
Each course meets once a week and usually runs for 6 or 7 weeks. Each week there is the chance to study the Bible together, discuss any questions you may have, and sometimes a short talk focussing on an aspect of Christian belief. There are group leaders who will help and do their best to answer your questions. The course is designed to give you a relaxed opportunity to find out what Christians believe. You are welcome to ask any question you like or simply sit back and listen to others ask them. Explore is open to all. You don’t need to know anything about the Bible, and you won’t be asked to sing, pray or read aloud.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been going to church for years, or never picked up a Bible before, whether you’ve got a religion or none - everybody is very welcome.
How much does the course cost?
Nothing. All materials are provided, including drinks, snacks, and lots of excellent home-made cakes!
When is the next course?
Our current Explore group started on Wednesday 3rd May 2017. This term we are doing the course Christianity Explored - looking at who Jesus is, what he came to do, and how he calls us to respond. The course runs for seven weeks (Wednesdays from 3rd May to 14th June), with each session taking place from 7.45 - 9.15pm at Eden chapel (directions).
Would you like to come?
