For people who are new to church or just want to find out what Christianity is all about we have several ways they can explore further

This a basic six-session introduction to the Christian faith held in a home with a few people together and assumes no previous knowledge of anything Christian. The sessions use a mix of Video, time to chat, simple discussion activities and space for reflection. They are conducted in a style that is down-to-earth and honest, and which aims to be enjoyable too.
