What is the Christianity Explored Course?

The Christianity Explored course is designed to help you begin to understand the Christian faith and the Bible.  It is an opportunity for you to listen, to discuss and to ask questions in a relaxed atmosphere.  Over the seven to ten week course you will read through and study parts of the Gospel according to Mark to find out "Who Jesus is", "What He did", and "What it has to do with your life story".

"The Christianity Explored course gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters."

When is it?

The next (Friends International in Guildford) Christianity Explored course will be held on Wednesday evenings from 5th October to 7th December 2016, 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Guildford Baptist Church, Millmead Centre,  (in Guildford town centre between Debenhams and the Council offices).

The ID Course will also be run at the same time and a free meal (buffet supper with vegetarian options) will be provided.  (Details about this course will be added shortly).

This Christianity Explored course will be in simple English and there will also be Mandarin (普通话 / 國語 / 華語), and Cantonese (广州话 / 廣州話) translators available to help.

Transport will be available from outside GSA (Starbucks near the Stag Hill campus entrance).

Who is it for?

"A huge variety of people, with different experiences and backgrounds, and different views and beliefs, come on the Christianity Explored course."

The Christianity Explored course is for people who know little or nothing about the Bible and want to find out what the Bible teaches.

What does it cost?

There is no cost to join a Christianity Explored course.  Simply email Ruth Archer.

What exactly will we study?

Each week we look at a passage from the Bible.  "A typical evening starts with a meal or cup of coffee, there's a chance to look at the Bible yourself and ask any questions you have, then there's a short talk, or DVD, and a chance to chat about what you have heard."

The seven week course includes a day away to spend more time together looking at several topics.  Depending on how a particular course is organised the day away might not be included, and studies of this day incorporated into the weekly studies, extending the number of weeks the course takes - up to nine or ten weeks.
