The School of Faith offers a learning environment that connects the curious with the core message of Christianity and it's significance for the whole of life.

 

Our CENTRAL CONVERSATION events give participants a chance to explore what it means to address contemporary issues through the lens of faith. Guest speakers introduce the topic and guide a discussion where everyone has the opportunity to explore their questions of faith related to the issues of daily life. 

Our CORE CLASSES aim to giving an overview of Christianity and reason for God. Each class contains talks illustrated with short films, interviews and a time for discussion centred on three essential questions:

  • WHO IS GOD? What is God like? How do we relate to God?
  • WHAT DO CHRISTIANS BELIEVE? What does is mean to believe in Jesus, what he did and what he taught?
  • WHY DOES FAITH MATTER TO ME? Why does this change everything?
