Talking Jesus - the course

Together we can make a huge impact on our nation… one by one.... amongst our friends and family as we follow the call of Jesus to share our faith! Are you up for the challenge?

Talking Jesus - The Course travels round the country meeting people who are all having a go at sharing faith. There are six practical, video-based teaching sessions with inspirational testimonies to give real-life examples. There are also five short parable-style films designed to get you thinking. You can use these as a taster to advertise the course, or as part of your group session.

Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu says, ‘The most helpful way people hear the Good News of God in Jesus Christ is by a follower of Jesus Christ sharing their encounter with Jesus Christ. This inspiring course will help Christians to be witnesses to Jesus Christ wherever God has placed them.’

The research

Roy Crowne from HOPE, Rachel Jordan-Wolf from the Church of England, and Andrew Ollerton from KingsGate Community Church in Peterborough, have developed the course to equip Christians to talk about Jesus, sensitively, appropriately and with respect in everyday life.

The Talking Jesus research showed the UK church that non-Christians know us, they like us and some of them, right now, are open to having conversations with us about Jesus. The more we shared the research, the more we found it encouraged Christians to have more confidence in talking about Jesus and sharing their faith. So we decided to share the Talking Jesus research as widely as we could and that’s why the course was created.

The Talking Jesus course is ideal for small groups. Discuss the video teaching, apply it to your situations, and pray together asking God to help you make Jesus known. The goal is to equip Christians to make the most of every opportunity to help your friends, colleagues and family members to consider Jesus for themselves and become his followers.
