Courses

Throughout the year we run a range of courses covering a variety of topics. Below are courses that we run currently or have done previously. We’re always looking to start a course so get in touch if you’re interested.

Our Courses

Christianity Explored

What’s the best news you’ve ever heard?

Was it surprising? Did it change the way you think? Or was it something you wanted to be true but didn’t dare hope?

Christianity Explored is a way of exploring what we believe is the best news ever heard  by looking at the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ.

We will look at three key questions:

Who Is Jesus?
Why did he come?
What does it mean for us?

Presented in a relaxed and informal setting using DVDs, written material and discussion the course is for anyone wanting to know more about Jesus without being pressured in any way.

Decisions

Every day of our lives we make decisions. Sometimes these are mundane… “What socks will I wear today?” While other decisions are life changing and momentous – these include decisions about marriage, jobs, education, children and many, many more.

“Decisions” is a course on which over five sessions we will consider life changing decisions. Decisions that if taken will radically change the direction of our lives!

Week 1: Believing – Personal Faith
Week 2: Baptism – Public Declaration
Week 3: Bible – Private Devotion
Week 4: Belonging – there’s no place like home
Week 5: Bringing – People Need Jesus

Each week you will have the opportunity to make a bold decision. Each decision, taken by itself has the power to change your life, and the lives of those around you, for the better.

But… taken together, “Decisions,” and the Eternal Truths that it presents, can help set a new trajectory for your future, that will bring the transforming power of God and the gospel of Jesus into the heart of your life, family and community.

 

Growing Leaders

Strong, Godly leadership is a proven factor in growing healthy churches.  That is why we are wholly committed to developing and equipping the future leaders of Challenge.

Growing Leaders is a CPAS course spread over 10 sessions which we are presenting over a two year period.  There are three parts to the course, each one having a particular focus:

Part 1: Firm foundations for Christian leadership
Part 2: Key skills for Christian leadership
Part 3: Keeping faithful in Christian leadership

Between sessions, each participant meets with their mentor to help them integrate what they are learning into their life and leadership. They also complete practical projects enabling participants to apply all that they are learning.

The Marriage Course

The Marriage Course is designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage.

The course is for couples who are seeking to strengthen their relationship and offers essential tools and practical ideas to help you build a relationship that lasts a lifetime.

On The Marriage Course you are seated at your own table for two. Each course is unique, but usually every session will include: food, a practical talk and a time for private discussion between you and your partner. You never share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner.

Over seven sessions we will think about:

Building Strong Foundations
The Art of Communication
Resolving Conflict
The Power of Forgiveness
The Impact of Family – past and present
Good Sex
Love in Action
