Christianity offers people the best news. That may not be your experience of Christianity so far. But when we take the time to look into the life of Jesus and his deep compassion for people, his extraordinary teaching and then his death on the cross, and what Jesus says about that, we can begin to see the truth of that claim. 

Will you come and see if Jesus offers you the best news? 

The Christianity Explored course looks at Mark's gospel - one of the accounts of Jesus' life and death in the New Testament. We look at three questions: who is Jesus? What did he come to do? Why is it important for everyone? It's informal, there's no pressure, there's plenty of time for discussion and opportunities to ask any questions. It's also a great course for Christians to brush up on the basics. Don't you want to hear some good news for a change?

If you'd like to join our course please .

The World We All Want is a 5 week course that gives you the chance to see for yourself that the Bible is good news for you. There's plenty of discussion and lots of opportunities to ask any questions.

The course takes a sweeping look through the unfolding story of the Bible and shows how all the things we long for in this world  - security, plenty and friendship - are promised by God for his people. The Bible is the story of God making that promise and keeping it: through Jesus Christ.
