Christian Nurture

Adult Enquirers Course

Once a year, usually starting sometime in the autumn, St Margaret's offers an Adult Enquirers' Course. This course is aimed at those who are new to the Christian faith, or have recently returned to Church after an absence, or simply wish to know more about Christianity.

Initially, the course lasts four weeks but there is then the option to carry on for longer. Some members of the Adult Enquirers' Course go on to Confirmation if they have not considered this in the past.

The Enquirers' Course usually meets on a Sunday evening in the Parish Hall and begins with a light meal prepared by members of St Margaret's congregations. It has been greatly appreciated by the many of those who have taken the course over recent years. There is plenty of opportunity to ask any questions, be they simple or complicated, and those who have taken the course have found they have learnt much from each other through the discussions.

Fr Philip can give details of when the next course will be offered.

Junior Confirmation Course

Once a year, usually starting in the autumn, St Margaret's offers a Junior Confirmation Course. Any young person in Year 6 or above at their school can join the course.

Classes usually take place on a Sunday evening in the Parish Hall and last an hour including a break for a drink and a biscuit. The course looks at many of the basic aspects of being a Christian such as: Worship; the Bible; the Sacraments; and particularly preparing to receive Holy Communion.

Nearly all the young people at St Margaret's have undertaken the course once they have reached the right age and they find it both interesting and fun.

Fr Philip can give more details and when the next course will be offered.
