The Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course aims to help Christians grasp the truth of who they are in Christ, sort out personal and spiritual issues and become more fruitful in their discipleship. The course emphasises personal responsibility and the need to make the right choices. The focus is very much on the individual. The material does have a particular style and pastoral approach which will not appeal to everyone.

We run the course twice a year and takes place on Monday evenings for 13 life-changing weeks at Miracle House and is FREE of charge.

To find out more, please contact the Church Office.

Discipleship Explored is an informal 8-week course for anyone who wants to make the most of their Christian lives. It is perfect for guests who have been through Christianity Explored and have recently decided to follow Christ.
Looking at Paul's letter to the Philippians, guests can explore for themselves the meaning of Paul's words 'for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.' Those familiar with Christianity Explored will feel right at home. Each session has a group discussion, picking up on the previous week's material and a short study in Philippians, a short talk or DVD as a theme for that week, and a further group discussion on issues arising.

Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week course for people who'd like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics. Looking at Mark's gospel, it explores who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him.
Christianity Explored gives time and space to think about the big questions of life and is ideal as a way of introducing people to Jesus, or as a refresher course for your home group or entire congregation.

By focusing on Mark’s Gospel, it allows people to explore the person at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus Christ.
