First Steps

Every journey has a beginning. So what will yours look like?

The beginning of every journey is so important, and faith is no different. We want to help you take your first steps, whether that is in exploring faith for the first time, or taking your first few steps as a new Christian. So what might your first steps look like?

If you want to explore taking a first step in faith, here are some things to explore. If you’re not sure this is the right area for you, click here to see other ways to grow in faith.

The Alpha Course

Alpha is a place to ask questions, explore life’s big questions and find out about Christian faith. It normally involves food, plenty of discussion and a chance to get together with others to explore things together. We run Alpha Courses regularly, both in person and online, and we’d love to hear from you if that’s something you’d like to know more about. This page gives a bit more info.

Baptism is something God calls all those who follow Him to do. There are lots of different ways that can happen – in a river, a swimming pool, a church building or a back garden. There might be lots of people there to celebrate with you, or it might be something with just a handful of people. It marks the fact we have started a new life with Jesus. So if that’s you, and you haven’t been baptised already, then this could be your next step. For some basic info, click here.

If you’d like to talk to someone about this, let us know using the form at the bottom of the page.

The Formation Course

When we start to follow Jesus, there is so much you could do to strengthen and live out your new faith, so where to start? There is a great resource called ‘Formation’ which helps with that question. It is something to go through, either one-to-one with someone or with a small group of others, and helps to set you off well. It is also great as a refresher, so it’s open to anyone!

Someone to talk to

Maybe all of this sounds a little bit too formal, or not quite where you’re at. If that’s you, that is absolutely fine! It might be that actually just a conversation or two with someone is what you’d like, and if so we would love to put you in touch with someone who will listen, talk and share with you no matter who you are or what you make of faith.

If you’d like to be linked up with someone, let us know in the form below and we’ll be in touch.
