Explore Together for the first time

It was with some trepidation and lots of prayer that Steve dared to attempt Explore Together in a church setting, on a Sunday. With about 140 to 150 people ranging in age from babies to 90+, the all-together service was replaced with Explore Together… the result…

‘I just had to write to you and thank you, and tell you… that it worked!!’ (Steve)

Steve got lots of great feedback, with several older members of the congregation saying how great it was to be able to share and hear other people’s input. Steve even had someone phone him after the service to say how they loved it.

Respond to God in a personal way

An enthusiastic teacher said it was just how they learn at school, and one Elder suggested that Explore Together could be used for all their All-Together (family) services.

But it wasn’t just the children and older members who found Explore Together rewarding. The youth pastor thought it was great and worked for the young people who attended. One member of the community even posted their craft activity on Facebook. Not only were they exploring the Bible together at the church but also with their Facebook friends.

Overall what particularly delighted Steve was the level of participation and how much people did things together in the zones.

This is exactly what Explore Together sets out to do. And if you want to know more about how your community can learn together start here.
