The Discovery Course has been designed for those who want to ‘cut to the chase’ and explore basic Christianity in a simple and straightforward way. In just five weekly sessions of fast-moving, well-illustrated and user-friendly content, it has proven to be extremely popular. As a result, those who enrol become very committed, benefiting from learning in the class and by facilitator-based discussion in small groups. It is also remarkable how new and lasting friendships are built in such a short time!
The course includes the following subjects, each taking one evening of a week:
Why bother with Christianity?
Can we trust the Bible?
What’s so special about Jesus?
Making sense of the Cross
How to become a Christian
The course is very accessible and is presented in either a small group or in a larger hall or church setting, whenever there are sufficient people. Sometimes the sessions are presented live by a skilled tutor and sometimes DVDs’ are shown. It includes a Powerpoint presentation, a course book and take-home notes for further study. We have found this multi-featured approach an indispensable learning aid.
We also have DVD’s of this course which can be used in small groups or one-to-one. They continue to have a powerful effect and have been a great means of helping people understand the Christian faith, whether the are just seeking or seasoned Christians.

The Foundations Course presents a biblical basis on which to firmly build
Presented in 8 modular sessions, the Foundations Course is a contemporary, ground-breaking course for Christians or interested participants, on the elementary principles and practices of New Testament Christianity. Primarily designed as the sequel to the Discovery Course, it can also be used as a stand-alone discipleship course.
Its outstanding features are two fold:
to consolidate a Christian’s understanding on how to build a strong and productive life in a rapid amount of time; secondly,
to present a balanced view of the weightier, biblical issues of heaven and hell – a much needed, challenging guide to following Christ in the 21st century!
