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.
When is the next course?
Our current Explore group started on Tuesday 22nd October 2019. We are running the course Christianity Explored - looking at who Jesus is, what he achieved, and how he calls us to respond. The course runs for nine weeks on Tuesdays (22nd October to 29th October, 12th November, 26th November to 10th December, 7th January to 21st January), with each session taking place from 8.00-9:30pm at Eden chapel (directions).
