The bread and butter of the Christian Church is to help people discover who God is. Here at Christ Church we want to journey with you. We're developing a three-step pathway which we hope will help move from initially exploring who God is, to eventually knowing who God is. From start to finish the pathway will take around six months, consisting of one session (a couple of hours) a week. If that sounds like something you're keen to do, here are the three parts of the pathway:
1. Alpha Course
The Alpha Course is a great introduction to Christianity, looking at questions such as who is God, who is Jesus, and why did Jesus die. There are eleven sessions.
2. Essentials Course
The Essentials Course encourages us to engage with the question of what it means to have a relationship with God. There is a short accompanying book to the course, with some light reading in between each session. In total there are five sessions.
3. Bible Course
Everything we know about God is drawn the words that God has given, in a compilation of 66 books, which we call the Bible. Understanding the Bible isn't easy. Just jumping straight in and reading it works for some people but others give up after a few weeks or months. Like many things, we need a guide, some background information, to give us tips on how to navigate our way around it.
The Bible Course is great for doing this. There are eight sessions.
