Welcome to this website!

It is a course which is designed to bring coherent arguments in favour of there being a God. We live in a largely sceptical culture now where many people question the existence of God. This course is designed to help seekers find arguments in favour of the existence of God as well as help Christians find arguments to defend their belief in the face of criticism.


It is based on the book "The Case for God" by Peter S Williams. This is now no longer published but can be bought second hand at this link:





Peter S Williams has written several books since which are very much worth reading


The material for this course can be found on this website and it would be worth reading the chapters beforehand. Week 7 on the online course will not be happening in person as we will be chatting as part of Weeks 1 to 6


Please let me know if you wish to attend the course by emailing me at simon@teamvicar.org


You can obviously come just for the first session as a taster if you wish.


Best wishes
