It is especially suitable for those who are enquiring about faith or what it means to be a follower of Jesus, a “disciple”. This might be for the first time, or it might be an opportunity to revisit faith or a past link to the church which has lain dormant now for many years. “Start” has its first session on Monday 13th March.
