Why is Christianity worth exploring?

So much of our society has rejected Christianity without ever having properly looked into it for themselves. Here we examine why Christianity is logical, relevant and life-changing, through 6 sporty images.

Sport is for the Amateur

Christianity, like sport, should be judged not by the sometimes misleading image of those in the limelight but by what it's really about - the grassroots, everyday love and relationship beneath it all.

Beyond the Rules

'Is Christianity just a set of rules?' If not, what is it about?
What are the differences between dry religion and a living relationship with Jesus Christ?

Why bother training?

In sport, and in much of life, you get out what you put in, with many going to extraordinary lengths to achieve supreme fitness or ultimate commitment to their sport. When it comes to our lives, Christianity offers a radically different approach to acceptance, achievement and inspiration than offered by all other world views.

It's Coming Home

We are all invited to receive God's outrageous gift of a new start with Him - no matter how far we've wandered.

Spectator or Player?

Who do we say Jesus is? Will we step off the stands and onto the pitch to experience the life to the full that Jesus promises?

Hope and Despair

How firm are the foundations to our lives? When the storms of life hit, how do we react?

Mike Powell's amazing world record beating long jump in 1991 is used to illustrate the problem of human sin, and how Jesus offers the only solution to this eternal problem.
