Pilgrim - A course for the Christian journey
“So here’s a question, do you know the 10 Commandments?
Or here’s an even harder question…do you know the Beatitudes?
I mean do you know them off by heart?
Well probably many of us inside the church, if we were given a bit of time and a following wind, we could puzzle out the 10 commandments.

Rich Inheritance Course Booklet
Jesus didn’t write a will. He left no written instructions. He didn’t seem to have a plan. At the end, as he hung dying on the cross, almost all of his followers had abandoned him. By most worldly estimates his ministry was a failure. Nevertheless, Jesus’ message of reconciliation with God lived on. It is the central message of the Bible. With this good news his disciples changed the world. How did they do it? What else did Jesus leave behind – what is his ‘legacy of love’?
This course addresses these questions.
Session 1 – An empty tomb
Session 2 – A group of people
Session 3 – A story
Session 4 – A power
Session 5 – A meal
