The Simply Christian Course
The Simply Christian Course is a ten week course aiming to introduce people to what Christianity is all about. It is based upon the book Simply Christian by Tom Wright. Each evening begins with a meal at 7.45 for 8.00 pm in the Christ Church lounge. This is an important part of the course allowing the guests and leaders to relax and get to know each other. Then from 8.30 pm a talk is given by Stephen Kuhrt on an aspect of the Christian faith. From 8.55 to 9.55 pm, the guests split into groups for discussion. The ‘rules’ are that no one is instructed in these groups and the whole emphasis is upon guests being able to discuss, question or rubbish whatever they wish about the Christian faith. The course will work best when people are completely honest and say exactly what they think and the leaders of groups are chosen on the basis of their ability to facilitate and encourage this. We encourage all of our newcomers at Christ Church to attend this course and for many it has proved invaluable both in getting to know others and deepening their understanding of the Christian faith.
