Introducing Jesus...

No other person in the history of the world has matched the influence of a young carpenter turned preacher, from the little town of Nazareth. Those who know him have made radical decisions to give up everything for the sake of being one of his followers. They have joyfully suffered great loss – friends, fame, family – even their very lives, just to tell the world about Him. His name is Jesus – do you know him?

Jesus has upended the whole world because he is the Christ – this isn’t his last name, but a title like ‘King’ or ‘President’. It is saying that Jesus is no-less than the eternal saviour and ruler of the world that God has promised… But we are getting ahead of ourselves! In short, Jesus is a pretty big deal, and we would love to introduce you to Him. He already knows you – he made you and has given you life – so I guess you could say, ‘it is time to meet your maker!”

Now normally, hearing those words brings a sense of foreboding and imminent death. Thankfully, that is not what we have planned! Just like meeting anyone, we need to listen to what they say about themselves, but also ask lots of questions, and so that will be our aim. Each week we will read from God’s Word, the Bible, and discuss together what it says about Jesus … and your questions are always welcome! Along the way, this will also tell us some pretty important and challenging things about us and our world and what really matters.


Introducing Jesus is an interactive course that runs over seven weeks where we explore God’s claims about Jesus. Each session only runs for an hour and will have space for questions and discussion as well as learning from the Bible. If you come along, we make no assumptions about what you know or believe, but seek to explore what God says together – and all questions are welcome! If you aren’t feeling sure about coming along, you’re welcome to take it one week at a time. But we would encourage you to commit to the whole course to see the whole picture of who Jesus is and why it matters! It is only a brief introduction, but we think you’ll agree that the person we meet is more compelling and incredible than we had thought or imagined. 

In Term 3, we are running the course on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 2pm, starting in week 4 (5 October). Let us know what time works for you – or if none do, let us know when you are free and we will try and make it work!

Introducing Jesus the...

1. Creator…

Did you know Jesus made us and everything?! This is the foundation for understanding who God is (as well as ourselves and the whole world!)

2. Doctor…

As the one who made it all, Jesus perfectly diagnoses the problem with the world… and it has a lot to do with us!

3. Judge…

Jesus is the judge of the living and the dead. If he will judge us – it would be good to know why and if there is anything we can do about it!

4. Saviour…

Sure Jesus’ gruesome death on a cross didn’t look pretty, but it was the most beautiful and perfect expression of love that offers salvation!

5. Living…

Death can seem like the end… but Jesus physically rose from the grave to never die again. He now claims to be the one way to eternal life!

6. Lord…

Because of all this, Jesus is the Christ, the Lord of all, who lives and reigns over all people for all time. No wonder he is such a big deal!

7. Your…

These are big ideas, but they aren’t abstract concepts. This is an introduction to Jesus, the living Lord. What is your response?

Jerome was born in Malaysia, grew up in the US and spent time in Egypt. Having come to faith as a postgraduate student at uni, he loves the opportunities that uni life opens up to encountering Jesus. He is super keen to help everyone at uni, particularly postgrads and academics, find true meaning and life in Jesus. He loves spending time with his family, outdoor activities, and engaging in thought provoking conversations.


Because the Christian life is about service, CORE Training is a series of practical small group training courses. They will equip you to know and share what you believe, to read the Bible on your own and with others, to lead a Bible Study group, and help you transition from Uni to the rest of your life!

Make the most of your university years to be equipped to serve now and well into the future!


If God has made the world and the Bible tells us how we are to live in the world, theology is all about knowing God truly and learning to view the world with His eyes.

CORE Theology is a fun and engaging weekly seminar that won’t let you sit back with indifference. Wherever you are, we want to stretch your thinking and firm-up your foundation to live rightly in service of God and others!
