Journey is for those who want a way into Christianity based on the life and ministry of Jesus in the Gospels, and upon discipleship to the Kingdom of God. It is not really a course, more a route of discovery.

This radical programme is designed to provide an alternative to some more traditional courses and is written for groups or individuals who want to explore the issues fully.


explore some important things:

what's worth believing,

who's worth being with,

what's worth doing?

and more...
