Christianity Explored - will run again later in the year  in church

 

 

 

Life Explored

Starts again soon- contact us if you are interested.

 

Life Explored is a brand new DVD based discussion that gets people talking about life and what is of real value.

Come along and join the group to discuss your ideas and think about how life can be made fuller.

 

 

Life Explored is a seven session series featuring a combination of short films - shot around the world - and Bible interaction.

It’s an exposé of the little gods that promise us so much happiness, yet deliver so little. As it explores the Bible story (creation, fall, redemption, new creation), Life Explored shows how our deepest desires for happiness can only be satisfied in Christ.

 

The best gift God can give us is himself.

321

For people who have questions or want to know more about Christianity

 

 

 321 is just 3 short sessions that think about who God is, why the world is as it is and who we are as people.

 

There are two opportunities to come and join a small group, contact us if you would like more details or if the dates and times do not work for you as we can easily run another.

 

It consists of a short video, discussion and a chance to ask anything you like about God, Jesus, faith, the bible or anything else. It is free and each session lasts just over an hour.
