Seeking God ?
How do you see Jesus ?
Are you looking, just wondering, trying to sort things out?
Have life events hit you in the face and you are wondering if there is more to life than you thought?
Are you just exploring what Christianity is about. Are you questioning if there is a God and did Jesus really exist in the way the Christians talk about him?
Do you wonder if Jesus is just a person from the history books? A teacher? A magician? Just a wise person? Or was he really part of God in a way that we find hard to fully understand. Is He really the person Christians say they meet in their lives and have experiences that show He is alive and at work in them today?
It’s great to just be searching. God promises that if we really search for him we will find him. But it can be a tough and challenging process to answer the questions you may have. That’s fine. We have all our lives to try and understand this mystery. God does not set time boundaries on a path to faith.
Knowing God and
Jesus is about coming into a relationship. Just as it is with anyone we meet.
We don’t know everything there is to know on a first meeting. We get to know
people gradually, over time. It’s the same with knowing God and Jesus for
yourself. He does not force himself on you. He said
"Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends“ (Revelation Chapter 3 verse 20).
He comes into a relationship with you when you ask . He is ready and waiting to do that.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation. The website gives further information and will point you to a course being run near you.
This website provides short videos on basic information about Christianity and shares real life stories. It also looks at tough questions. Christianity Explored is a discussion course which gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. The website lists places near you where the course is running.
