Exploring Christianity

The Start! Course

Start! introduces Christianity through six DVD based interactive, small-group sessions. The Start! course makes no assumptions about participants’ background or experience or knowledge of Christianity or the church.

The interactive approach of Start! has proved a winner throughout the UK and overseas – and in every kind of setting: rural, urban and suburban churches, schools, the armed forces, prisons…

Each session lasts about 90 minutes and is based around short, lively DVD programmes – two per session. Down-to-earth ‘vox pop’ interviews and settings including Blackpool beach, a fun fair, shopping centre and a junk yard prompt lively discussion.

There’s time to chat, interactive exercises and space for reflection – all in a style that aims to be honest and enjoyable.  Before the start of each session we also share a meal together, depending on the time of day this can be a hot cooked dinner or even afternoon tea.

We have run two Start! courses so far, and we plan to run more during the year.  If you or someone you know might be interested in participating, please get in touch to book your space.
