 Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored gives people time and space to think about the big questions of life and to explore the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith, Jesus Christ.

It does this by letting the Gospel tell the gospel. Over seven weeks, guests journey through the Gospel of Mark exploring the identity, mission and call of Jesus – who he is, why he came and what it means to follow him. There is plenty of time to ask questions and discus the claims of Jesus and their implications for our lives.

There is also a youth version called “Soul” and an ESOL version.
