For Complete Beginners

'I think I might believe in something - maybe a higher power - but I'm not sure I can call it God, and I'm completely new to all of this.  Is there anything to help me?'

Are you curious about church and what Orthodox Christians believe?  Do you believe in a higher power but aren't sure how to express that in your life?  Maybe you belong to a faith tradition that is something other than Christianity.  Or perhaps you have no faith background and you're not sure what you believe.

Then you're not alone.  In fact, you're in the company of hundreds of thousands of people in Britain today, and maybe even more.  A large number of people have something of God in their hearts or an idea of God in their minds and just don't know how to develop it.  Many people today were not raised with a background in a community of faith so don't necessarily have the tools to explore their beliefs or the language to express them.  Yet this doesn't mean that they don't want to.
