Church of God Aberkenfig

Y Course

Have you heard a lot about Christianity and God, but just don’t understand how it fits into the world we live in? Do questions such as ‘Why does God allow suffering?’, ‘What about other religions?’ and ’How can anyone know if God exists, or what He is really like?’ leave you wondering how anyone could ever even think about being a Christian? Then you’re not alone! In fact, most people, even Christians, ask these questions at some time or other. That is why a course, known as the Y Course, has been designed specifically to deal with these issues.

The Y Course is a free course run by the church using materials created by professional, widely acclaimed Christian authors Peter Meadows and Joseph Steinberg. It has been specifically designed to cater for people without and biblical knowledge and does not start by dealing with biblical knowledge and truths, but rather by dealing with issues about life itself. The course does not look to force you into making a decision about difficult topics, but rather presents things from a different viewpoint, allowing you time to consider, share and discuss your views on the subject.

The Course Itself

The course runs over 8 one hour sessions, which takes 8 weeks to complete. Each session is split into two parts. In each part the people who attend will watch a short 6 minute DVD segment before getting a chance to contemplate what they have just seen and to share their views on the topic. The course is only designed to run for a small group of people (perhaps 5) at once, making discussions informal and enjoyable. Please click here to visit the official Y Course website.

Discussion Topics

Eight different topics will be discussed during the Y Course. These are as follows

  1. Is there more to life than is?
  2. Can anyone really know what God is like?
  3. Are we really expected to believe what happened so long ago?
  4. If Jesus was so good, why was He executed?
  5. Why so much suffering and so many religions?
  6. Is there really life after death?
  7. Can God make a difference in my life?
  8. Who wants to be stuck with a bunch of boring old rules?


The Y Course is run on request and is not currently scheduled. If you would like to register your interest please contact us here, we are more than happy to help.
