EXPLORING

Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
(John 3:3)

Are you curious about Christianity or seeking answers to life’s biggest questions such as:
Where do I come from? How can I find hope? What is my purpose in this life? What happens when we die?”

We want to help you explore Christianity and find answers to life’s most important questions.

Below are a few of the course offerings we have available…

FOR SEEKERS & SKEPTICS

Christianity welcomes those who are seeking or skeptical to ask honest questions about the faith – and we want to help facilitate that! Below you can click to view some of the courses we have run to help answer some questions and explore the faith.

THE SEARCH FOR MEANING WORKSHOP SERIES

THE SEARCH FOR MEANING workshop series is a 3-part interactive series of sessions designed for Seekers and Skeptics to wrestle honestly with some of the biggest questions of life and meaning in a safe and open environment. In each video workshop, we discuss some of life’s most important questions through video, group discussions, teaching, and open Q&A to see how the Bible provides compelling answers to our most pressing needs.

We explore:

  • Time, Materialism and Wealth
  • The Problem of Evil & Pain
  • Death and the Grave

This is a seven-week course where we come together over a meal, watch a video that raises an important question about life and faith, then engage in discussion about how the Bible addresses these topics. We will have table leaders to help facilitate discussions around the course content in smaller groups and provide a safe space to explore the big questions of faith, life, meaning, purpose and destiny.

What’s the best news you’ve ever heard?

Was it surprising? Did it change the way you think? Or was it something you wanted to be true but didn’t dare hope?

Christianity Explored is a way of sharing the best news ever heard, and gives people space and time to think about the big questions of life. Over 7 sessions in Mark’s Gospel, find out more about the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ.

This seven-week course is led by one of our leaders and discussion is facilitated in breakout groups in a safe environment for people to ask honest questions about faith. Each week we meet around a meal, watch the videos and talk about what the Bible has to say on these topics with time for open Q&A.

What’s the best future you could imagine?

There are few emotions more powerful than hope. But these days, hope often feels hard to come by. Where can we find a hope that won’t disappoint us?

Hope Explored looks at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel, this three-session series shows that Christianity is about real hope: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about my present.

COURSE OUTLINE

  • Session 1 – Hope
  • Session 2 – Peace
  • Session 3 – Purpose

This three-week course is led by one of our leaders and discussion is facilitated in a safe environment for people to ask honest questions about faith. Each week we gather around a meal and watch a video, study a passage in the Bible and discuss the topic at hand. At the end there’s a time of open Q&A.

We encourage you to invite your family, neighbours and friends and come join us for our next batch of courses as we explore the big questions of life and faith together!
