Join this flexible, home-based, tutored, online course and explore the themes of life, death and hope that are at the very heart of our faith. This course is open to all.
Facilitator Peter Nicholls offers the following description of the way the course will be run and outlines its content:
John Wesley is reported as saying: “Our people know how to die well.”
This course may help you to prepare for a Christian death, but that’s not the only reason for signing up! The subjects are fundamental aspects of Christian understanding at the core of what we believe, giving us confidence to live as Jesus lived. And even if our own death is, we pray, a long way off, most of us encounter people who may not be so far away or who have lost loved ones and are asking deep questions, craving a Christian answer. One might even say a “true” Christian answer, free from some of the doggerel that can inhabit bereavement cards.
Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses are for everyone who works with, lives with or supports young people aged 8-18.More
Enjoy what is sure to be a most interesting talk about the dog/human relationship from the comfort of your own home presented by Revd Fiona Haworth.More
