Exploring Faith with a Light Touch
2nd Session 9.30 am – 10.00 pm Tuesday 5th November (after assembly)
Those taking part are asked to watch short videos at home from the Christianity Explored series then join in some very informal discussions after assembly in church. Join in when you can and don’t worry when you can’t.
How it works
Before each session, watch that week’s 15 mins of Christianity Explored videos by following the links below.
As you watch ask: what struck me for my own life? and what questions do I have? We’ll discuss people’s questions in the informal sessions in church.
