This 4 session course is led by Revd Dr Martyn Atkins. Martyn says "over four sessions we’ll be exploring what evangelism means and what it consists of, both past and present. We’ll look at the many different ways of evangelism and assess them for their usefulness today. We’ll be examining how evangelism, conversion, discipleship, mission and the nature and calling of the Christian church relate to each other. We’ll explore why evangelism is sometimes a thing of contention, and ask why some Christians question whether we should engage in it today at all, recognising that many don’t! We’ll reflect on the ‘ethics of evangelism.’ And we’ll also draw upon our own experiences and learning to identify what ‘effective’, ‘authentic’ and ‘appropriate’ evangelism might be today. There’s pauses for reflection and prayer along the way, and a number of exercises set out at various points. And there’s a reading list identifying basic texts and some for those who want to delve deeper."
