Start! introduces Christianity through six DVD based interactive, small-group sessions. The Start! course makes no assumptions about participants’ background or experience or knowledge of Christianity or the church.
The interactive approach of Start! has proved a winner throughout the UK and overseas – and in every kind of setting: rural, urban and suburban churches, schools, the armed forces, prisons…
Each session lasts about 90 minutes and is based around short, lively DVD programmes – two per session. Down-to-earth ‘vox pop’ interviews and settings including Blackpool beach, a fun fair, shopping centre and a junk yard prompt lively discussion. There’s time to chat, interactive exercises and space for reflection – all in a style that aims to be honest and enjoyable.
The sessions are easy to run, flexible and work well with big groups as well as small. Above all, taking part in Start! is enjoyable for everyone involved.
As well as those who want to know more about Christianity, Start! works well with baptism families, wedding contacts, bereaved families, parents of children and teenagers and those who are new to the church.
