If you have been on our Christianity Explored course and you would like to know what's the next step, or you have recently become a Christian and would like to grow further in your faith, or if you would just like to know more about living for Christ then Discipleship Explored is for you.
What is Discipleship Explored?
Discipleship Explored is an informal 8-week course for anyone who wants to make the most of their Christian lives. It is perfect if you have journeyed through Christianity Explored and have recently decided to follow Christ.
The course is based on Paul’s letter to the Philippians. It’s compelling, challenging and inspiring and is a journey into the book of Philippians. As you discover Paul's extraordinary letter, you will explore for yourself the meaning of Paul's words: "For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."
Week 1: Confident In Christ – Philippians 1:1-11
Week 2: Living In Christ – Philippians 1:12-26
Week 3: Standing Together In Christ – Philippians 1:27-2:1
Week 4: Transformed By Christ – Philippians 2:12-30
Week 5: Righteous In Christ – Philippians 3:1-9
Week 6: Knowing Christ – Philippians 3:10-4:1
Week 7: Rejoicing In Christ – Philippians 4:2-9
Week 8: Content In Christ – Philippians 4:10-23
If you are familiar with Christianity Explored then you will feel right at home. Each session has a Group Discussion, a short study in Philippians, a short talk, and a further Group Discussion.
As usual there will be plenty of time to ask questions in a friendly and safe environment.
You may be familiar with it already – Philippians is one of Paul’s most personal letters written to young Christians, encouraging them to follow his example and speak the word of God courageously and firmly. The reason we say it is compelling, challenging and inspiring is because participants will be on the same journey as the Philippians were! It is particularly relevant to those people just beginning their Christian life.
