Lent Course, 'Being a Christian'

What are the essential elements of the Christian life?

Christians read the Bible, pray, belong to the Church, grow, serve others and share their faith. There is a huge and bewildering variety in Christian thinking and practice about all kinds of things, but these six basic elements remain constant and indispensable.

In this Lent course, David Cook will help us to look at what these activities tell us about the Christian life, deepen our understanding and enable us to work them out in practice.

There will be input from David, who is a gifted Bible teacher with many years of pastoral experience, and an opportunity for questions and discussion. You will not be asked to read or pray out loud.

Everyone is welcome to at whatever stage you may be in your Christian journey.

These are the sessions we will cover:

Monday 23rd Feb: Reading the Bible

Monday 2nd March: Praying

Monday 9th March: Belonging to the Church

Monday 16th March: Growing as a Christian

Monday 23rd March: Serving others

Monday 30th March: Sharing our faith

Coffee will be served at 7.30, and the sessions will run from 7.45-9pm. There will be a retiring collection to cover the course expenses.

Do join us this Lent as we encourage one another to learn more about being a Christian.
