Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored

It is natural to explore big questions — why are we here? Have we any purpose? Is this all there is?
At Castle Hill we believe the message and person of Jesus offers life-changing answers to these questions. Christianity Explored gives people an opportunity to hear this explained, ask their questions and to think through the big issues of life.

Christianity Explored is a 7-8 week course that aims to achieve all of these things in a safe, relaxed setting where you’ll not be asked to pay, pray, sing or read. The course is open to all — whether you’d call yourself a ‘beginner’ with very little/no knowledge of Christianity or you have another faith background or you’re a believer who’d like to brush up on the basics — all are welcome. No previous knowledge of the Bible or Christianity is assumed.

At each session we will watch a short video before following a simple booklet (which we’ll send you) to help us reflect together as a group on what we’ve heard. We’ll even provide you with a Bible, if you’d like one.

The course covers questions, such as: What do Christians believe? Who is Jesus Christ? Did he really exist? Is he really God? If he did exist and he is God, what did he say while he was here on earth? Does he really tell us what the point of life is?

About Our Course

Our Christianity Explored course will be run in person and (depending on demand) on Zoom. Let us know your views when you register below. There will be seven weekly sessions each lasting about one and a half hours. They will involve watching a video, looking at the Bible and sharing in group discussion. To get the most out of this course there will also be some ‘homework’ between sessions.

Our hosts—Andrew and Liz Short—look forward to welcoming you, and will work hard to create an open space for everyone to explore both the questions they come with and those that arise. Do register your interest below.
