Our new Back to Basics course which focuses on the life and teaching of Jesus starts on Tuesday 26 January at 7.30pm in the church hall. It's for anyone new to Christianity or who wants a refresher.

The course lasts six weeks. To book a place please sign the sheet at the back of church or call the church office on 01902 722840 (weekday mornings).

UPDATE: The course will now run for only three weeks. Course members can then join a Lent Group if they wish.


Week 1: Scene setting; getting to know each other; expectations of the group.

Week 2: Prayer; ways of praying; writing a prayer; introduce resources.

Week 3: Using the bible; looking at a gospel passage; for whom was the Gospel written?

Week 4: What was it Jesus taught? The Sermon on the Mount; and the upside down world of the Kingdom of God.

Week 5: Jesus in Luke: wisdom figure; prophet; saviour and healer; dinner host and guest; innocent martyr; the human one.

Week 6: Jesus call to mission in a hostile world – the Acts of the Apostles; evaluation and what next!
