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 or Alpha, and/or have recently decided to follow Christ.

The Discipleship Explored course is easy to understand, friendly, engaging and challenging.

What’s the best love you’ve ever known?

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.”

If you are familiar with Christianity Explored then you will feel right at home. It features brand-new documentary-style films and inspiring real-life stories from around the world.

Each session has a short study in Philippians (usually a DVD) 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.

How many weeks does it run for?

The course lasts 8 weeks but if you can’t get there one week, that’s okay we will understand – just let us know and we can arrange for you to catch up!
