Dinosaur Roadshow

2.15-3pm – come and meet the Dinosaurs

  • Meet Valentino our full sized Velociraptor!
  • See Egbert, our Triceratops baby hatchling
  • Youngsters can sit astride Alexis, our Allosaurus!
  • Children 12 and under receive an educational free gift
Today, DINOSAURS are often spoken of as monsters from ’prehistory’. But the Bible doesn’t speak of long periods of time on earth before mankind, so there never was a pre-history!
Even so, everyone is familiar with the idea of ‘prehistoric monsters’ roaming the earth in the so-called Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. So DINOSAURS now provide us with a wonderful opportunity to teach the true history of the world to young and old, and that’s why we call them ‘Prehistoric Preachers’!
Save the date now for this fascinating and fun event.
Free Entry – Free Parking
Presented by Dominic Statham – speaker with CMI UK / Europe

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored is a course for people who’d like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on the basics. It explores who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him. You’re not asked to pray, sing, or read aloud, and you can ask any question you like. Or, if you prefer, you can come along and simply listen.

Starts Sunday 14th January at 3 PM (approx 2 hrs)

Who is Christianity Explored for?
Christianity Explored is for anyone who wants to investigate Christian belief with a group of other people. Whether you have previous experience of Church, Christians and the Bible, or none at all, this course is for you. Everyone is welcome – from the most sympathetic Sunday schooler to the convinced atheist. We will respect your background, culture and beliefs. Tell us as little or as much about yourself as you feel comfortable.

What goes on?
Some food is usually provided during the afternoon. The course is normally run in groups of 6-9 people, and after briefly discussing the course material from the week before, there is a talk or video on the theme for that week. Then the groups discuss any questions that have arisen, and the evening is wound up at about 5pm. Of course, you’re welcome to stick around a bit longer for a coffee and to discuss any further issues you might have.

How long does the course last?
7 weeks.

Can I pull out if I want to?
Of course you can.

How much does the course cost?

Do I have to bring anything?
No, all course materials are provided.

Is it ‘churchy’?
We hope not. It’s not a church service. There’s no praying, singing or clapping, and you won’t be asked to read aloud.

Am I going to get preached at?
Each evening includes a talk (or video) designed to explain an aspect of Christian belief and to stimulate discussion. Hopefully you’ll find it challenging and amusing. The group leaders will facilitate discussion and try to answer questions.

Do I have to speak in the group?
Not if you don’t want to. You are welcome to come and just sit and listen.

How is Christianity Explored different from other courses?
The focus on Mark’s Gospel, with its emphasis on who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him, makes Christianity Explored quite different.

Why is the course run?
Christians count it a real privilege to explain the truth and relevance of the Christian message. We don’t have all the answers but believe that we have exciting news to share about Jesus Christ
