At Barneys we offer a number of short courses throughout the year.

The aims of our short courses are to help develop your skills and encourage you in your faith in an interactive format

Short courses are for anyone and everyone! You can come with your DNA or Growth Group, or by yourself.

In 2024 we are focussing on two main priorities:

  • Refreshing your faith
  • Bible reading skills to help you engage with the Bible in a deeper way.

We will do this via

  • One off events
  • Really short courses – just two weeks, short and sharp to get you started
  • Short courses – 3 weeks on a topic

Really Short Courses

  • It's a Bible Overview

    Sundays March 10 & 17, 2-4pm

    Get insight into how the Bible fits together as one big book with one major storyline.

    This course should help anyone who struggles to make sense of what the big picture of our faith is, and how seemingly random books like Nahum or Chronicles fit into that.

Exploring the Life and Teaching of Jesus

The Alpha Course 

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that create a safe and honest space, where people can explore life, faith and meaning.

Alpha is an environment for anyone and everyone who wants to explore life and the Christian faith, ask questions, and share their point of view. Alpha is free and everyone is welcome.

Simply Christianity

Explore the ancient faith of Christianity through the lens of Jesus’ life and teaching. Over 5 weeks, we’ll read through one of the earliest bios of Jesus, enjoy good food in great company, and discuss the big questions with thoughtfulness and respect. For those exploring Christianity for the first time, or seeking an adult understanding for childhood beliefs.
