[Church Army] Bringing people to a living Christian faith is at the heart of Church Army and at the start of this new year we are so excited that more than 3,000 people have now taken part in our Now a Christian email course.

The course is specially designed to help people explore the basics of Christianity. People can sign up for free by visiting the Now a Christian website and they will then receive an email every day for five weeks which helps them discover what it means to follow Jesus and make their own decisions about the Christian faith.

Here is some of the feedback we’ve received:

"Thank you so very much for Now a Christian. Through it I have learnt, started to read my Bible, prayed, cried and tonight I opened my heart to God who I have rejected and been angry with for so long. And he still loves me! I am safe with him again."

"I am not sure if you still remember me. I'm the young man from Poland who wrote a message about how I was losing my faith. Now, I’ve almost finished Now a Christian and I feel thoroughly changed and challenged. It is a decision that changes a man's life."

Peter Graystone, one of the creators of Now a Christian, said: "I am surprised and delighted that so many people have used Now a Christian. Perhaps it has been so popular because it doesn’t start from the point of view, ‘We are Christians – what should we tell people?’  Instead my starting point when writing it was, ‘If I were making my first tentative steps toward faith, what would I want to know?’  So it’s simple, life-enhancing and utterly practical. And I hope it’s enjoyable too."
