Christian basics from a liberal and progressive perspective
Drawing on liberal and progressive insights from the Christian tradition and the best of modern knowledge. The aim is that participants will be helped to develop an understanding of Christianity which they find both credible and helpful, without being told what to believe.
We are planning eight sessions spread over September, October and November. Because we think there is much need for courses like this, we hope for constructive feedback which will help us develop the course for use by others.
Each session is to last about 30 minutes. It will begin at 11.15 am in the Church Hall at St Michael in the City, Upper Pitt Street, L1 5DB. We aim to include time for participants to reflect on their own questions and experiences; a short video or talk; and a sharing of thoughts. It will then be followed by a service in the church. You will be welcome at any or all of them.

22 September: Jesus.
