Faith Begins Course

The Christian Faith, explored, discussed and studied

The ‘Faith Begins’ Course at St John’s Cathedral is a two part introduction to Christianity. Part One is an introduction to Jesus. Part Two is a baptism and confirmation course. Candidates for baptism and/or confirmation are expected to complete both parts.

The course explores the Christian faith in a relaxed atmosphere with a meal and informal discussion.

‘Faith Begins’ is rooted in the Anglican tradition which values the bible, tradition, and reason, and interprets them in the light of a modern understanding about life and the world we live in.

Part One covers the birth, teaching, work, death and resurrection of Jesus and the meaning of following Jesus.

Part Two examines the essentials of Christian teaching, and explores some of the questions of faith–which are often the big questions of life:

  • What happens when we die?
  • Why does God allow evil and suffering?
  • How can I live my life better?
  • What gives meaning to our life?

Christianity gives insights into God and life’s questions. In particular, how the life of Jesus of Nazareth might help us to live our lives now. We don’t give easy answers, but we do promise honest exploring.
