Christianity Explored & Hope Explored

Do you have questions about life?

Maybe covid, or the war in Europe, dashed hopes or sadness in your own life or family, causes you to ask questions, like:

Why does God let things like this happen?

What is wrong with the world?

What is life all about?

Is this life all there is?

Here at St Stephen's we'd love to help you understand why we think Jesus and the message of Christianity really is the best news you could ever hear! Jesus, and believing in him offers absolutely anyone a hope for the future, based on certain events in the past, that won't disappoint; not now or ever.

Our free discussion groups, like Hope Explored (3 sessions) or Christianity Explored (7 sessions) give you a chance to ask all any questions and investigate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus for yourself. It's also an opportunity to find out what God says is wrong with our world, and us, and to hear the really good news about what he's done to put it right.

For details of our next FREE course, just get in touch.

If you have questions or have never looked at one of the eye-witness accounts of the life and teaching of Jesus, this course is just for you. It's free, and we won't ask you to sing, or read out loud, or pray.

The coronavirus means we can't meet like we usually would, but we are planning to run a course via Zoom. Just get in touch if you'd like more details. Contact the church office for details of our next course:

You can find out more about the course here, or watch the trailer from Christianity Explored below.
