Who the dickens is this Jesus of Nazareth?

The Son of God? The son of a carpenter? A prophet, a holy man and a martyr? An illiterate Jewish peasant? Was he born in Bethlehem? Nazareth? Under a wandering star? Did he have brothers and sisters, a wife? Was his mother a virgin at the time of his birth; was she present at the hour of his death? We could fill 10,000 MB of web space with these questions and only scratch the surface of what might be called: Jesus of Nazareth FAQ's.

The underlying questions are fewer, and perhaps easier to answer:
The Betrayal of Christ
"Why do you call me Lord, Lord,
and not do as I say?"
[Luke 7.46]
* Why do I need a relationship with God?
* Will spirituality make a difference to our lives?
* Why have so many people rejected the Christian church?
* How is Christianity relevant to young people today?
* What is the real meaning of life?
* What happens when I die?

The following pages will, hopefully, answer some of your questions. What follows is not for the faint hearted. We do not pull any punches, nor do we seek to avoid the issues - we are braced for the onslaught from those fundamentalist Christians who cling to their 'flat earth' mentality of a Garden of Eden in 4000BC - but we do believe with all our hearts that today, at the dawning of the third millennium after the death of Jesus of Nazareth, a common sense approach to Christianity must and will prevail.

We invite you to join us in a Christian fellowship that embraces the three most important aspects of Jesus' ministry: love, healing and open commensality. A fellowship that is non-judgmental; open to all and strives to meet the needs of today's youth, families, singles and seniors regardless of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age, or mental or physical disability.
