What does the Bible say about the big questions of life?

Six original stories exploring our longing for more

The seven interactive sessions centre around a collection of silent films, featuring people from across the world, which help us uncover what we are really living for and how God can meet our deepest desires for happiness.

Each session focuses on a different way we try to find said happiness, and asks whether it brings the satisfaction we long for.

The series starts with an introduction, then each session includes:

  • a silent film
  • a talk
  • a Bible passage to study.

Life Explored offers the opportunity to consider questions that help us understand our search for fulfilment, and Jesus’s offer of life in all its fullness.

You can do the series in a church setting, at home with your neighbours, or with a friend in a coffee shop — anywhere there’s space to pull up a chair, watch a video and have a chat. It is designed to create a comfortable space to ask questions. It’s for confused Christians, convinced atheists, and everybody in between.

We hope you enjoy using it to discover what Jesus has to say about the big questions of life we all wrestle with.
