Start! Course – Introduction to Christianity

Who is the course for?

The Start! course is designed to help people discover the basics of the Christian faith. The sessions assume no previous knowledge of anything Christian.

  • Perhaps you are new to the Church?
  • Maybe you have been invited by us?
  • You wonder if christianity is for you
  • You have heard about the course and thought you’d give it a go
  • You are getting married and feel it would make your day extra special
  • You want to know the facts about christianity from a reliable source

There is time to chat, simple discussion and space for reflection. All in a style that is down-to-earth and honest, and which aims to be enjoyable too. There is no written work or homework!

What To Expect

The course is a series of four DVD presentations over six weeks. Each video explains aspects of christianity and raises questions that you, yourself may have concerns about. It tells you about Jesus Christ and his life and why so many people across the world put their belief and trust in him. Each session is friendly and relaxed and lasts around an hour. There is no pressure to complete the course. If its not your sort of thing – that’s fine. However, it’s a great way to discover a lively welcoming church and find meaning and purpose in your life.

If you are interested, please come along, bring friends or family members. Its free of charge!

The Start! course is held at regular intervals throughout the year. Contact Suzanne or the Church Office for the next course.

People that have completed the course here at The Ascension have found it to be interesting, informative and a stepping stone into life in the church and a knowledge of God and Jesus. Some have continued their learning by doing further courses.
