Like the Alpha Course, Christianity Explored is a course that gives an introduction to the Christian Faith.
Folk in churches join Sunday congregations for a whole host of reasons. Maybe they have been members of other churches and have recently moved into the area. But it’s also just as likely that there have been other starting points. Maybe a friend has persuaded them to come along. Maybe the loss of a loved one has been the trigger. Sometimes it has been just plain curiosity.
But only rarely do individuals join at just the right time to find out about the basics of the faith that they proclaim each week. Mostly the weekly teaching is based around particular Bible readings, so it might take a while for new church members to pick up the bigger picture – a very long while sometimes! So every now and again it’s really important to make sure that this basic teaching is covered. It’s the only way to be sure that everyone in church really does have their facts right about what is definitely the best news in the whole wide world…… Jesus as God and what he did for each and every one of us!
But that doesn’t mean that this course is just for newcomers to our church or to the Christian faith….
If you think that you might already know all of the basics, then your reason for coming along is to support those who don’t, by sharing your knowledge and experiences during the sessions and by doing your bit to make everyone feel warmly welcomed. This will help us all to grow as a strong community that is focussed on Jesus and that very deliberately goes out of its way to offer mutual encouragement among its members. You may even make new friends!
