Hello and welcome to 'Modulo – The big Picture' – a series of 'modules' that build into an exploration of God and Christianity, which many people find gives life meaning.

You can do Modulo on your own, but it's better in a small group so you can share the bit of knowledge you each have. If you're a newcomer to Christianity, or would like a revision, we recommend you start with Module 0 in order to create a Firm Foundation. It provides answers to basic questions beginning with "Does God exist?"

Alternatively, if you know the basics of Christianity or have already done ‘Modulo – The Basics’ you can skip Module 0 and go straight to Module 1, which includes a short revision so we all start from the same base.

Each Module is divided into several parts, the first part (numbered /0) gives an Introduction, whilst the rest of each Module is numbered /1, /2, etc to explore the topic in detail. Sample questions and answers are provided to help you think about it and compare the points made in the Modules with your own life today. If you're in a group, you may like to use those questions but explore answers to your own questions as well.

You can use the material provided in a traditional way by reading through it first, then discussing the points raised using your own questions or the sample ones provided, or you might prefer to have a more informal gathering; whichever suits you.

You can meet in a church or hall, or you might prefer someone's home, a pub, a coffee bar, etc. Wherever you meet, an informal gathering over a meal or with refreshments has been found to work best.

Module 0 is designed to create 'A Firm Foundation' to help you make better sense of the principles that follow. It's intended for newcomers to Christianity or people who feel unsure and would like to revise the basics.

It asks whether God exists, what he's like, how we can build a relationship with him, and describes how to use the Christian holy book - The Bible.

Module 1 begins with a short revision of the basics (Part 1/0), which you can skip if you did Module 0 or Modulo - The Basics and go straight to Part 1/1 instead. Module 1 looks at how God revealed himself to humanity, gave us Laws to live by, made a Covenant (an agreement) with his early people to protect them if they would obey his Laws, how they and we today find that too difficult so keep breaking those Laws, and the problems we get into as a result of that disobedience.
  • Exploring accounts in the Bible's Old Testament to reveal how God made himself known to humanity and gave us rules which still govern life today.

Module 2 considers what God did about our disobedience of his Laws to bring us back into a proper relationship with him - the birth, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ - hence the name 'Christianity'.
  • A summary of the 'Gospels' in the Bible's New Testament – four accounts of the life, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Module 3 explores how Jesus' immediate followers, the Apostles, responded after Jesus had returned to heaven. At first they invited new converts to adopt Jewish ways and join a 'Fellowship of Believers', but following a vision they realised Christianity was for everyone and took the message out to non-Jews (Gentiles) through a series of Journeys.
  • This Module also uses the Bible’s New Testament but this time ‘The Acts of The Apostles’ plus 'Letters' written by the Apostles to guide the church.
    (Return to top)
Module 4 will look at how the church has developed since the Apostle's time, from the Roman era, through the Middle Ages, The Reformation, 19th century missionaries, right up to today. (This Module is not yet available).
  • How the church developed over the centuries - How we got to where we are and why it's like it is.

Module 5 is simple guide to prayers and praying to help you in your efforts to build your own relationship with God. It also provides an opening and closing prayer you can use for each of the Modules.
  • Guidance to help you develop your ‘prayer life’ and build a relationship with God.

  • This Module is optional and applies to people who would like help in forming and leading a group.
