‘Being Christian Beyond Church’ – a six-week e-learning course

Mon 2 Nov

Moodle, Online

If you’d like to explore what ‘everyday faith’ might look like, this free, flexible, home-based, online course is for you! Please also share with others: it is open to all.

The pandemic has underlined the fact that being a Christian disciple is about far more than Sunday church-going. While the crisis has kept us out of our church buildings, it has also challenged us to think more deeply about being church, in and for a suffering world. The call to live an everyday faith 24/7 has never been clearer.

Facilitator Peter Nicholls offers the following description of the way the course will be run and outlines its content:

Be encouraged: if you can click around a website and can send emails, you will be able to use the Moodle virtual learning environment! The big advantage is that you can learn at times and places to suit yourself (but will need between 3 and 4 hours per week to do the course justice, preferably in several short bursts). Before the course proper starts, there’s a week in which to familiarise yourself with the tools, with guide booklet (printed!) in hand and telephone helpline at the ready. The course is actively facilitated by me, Peter Nicholls, and, happily, I’ve been doing this sort of thing for 20 years. In other words, a tutor journeys with you: steering, responding, challenging, assisting.
