Discovering Jesus through Asian Eyes is an eight week discussion-based course specifically designed to answer questions Asians have about the Christian faith and how it is relevant to them. It is based on the booklet Jesus through Asian Eyes.
Since its launch Discovering Jesus through Asian Eyes has been used in churches throughout the UK helping them reach out to those from an Asian background. The course provides a welcoming setting where people can discuss questions of faith in an informal and friendly group, get to know each other and share their thoughts and opinions in an open-minded atmosphere. Course participants will have the opportunity to openly share their ideas, meet new people and learn more about Jesus and the Christian faith.
