The Salt Course

If you have subscribed to Salt for any length of time, you’ll know that we run regular Salt Live events for Londoners to come and hear from an interesting speaker on one of life’s big questions.

In the autumn, we expanded this to run our first Salt Course. This is a 6-evening course, designed to help Londoners explore life’s big questions, looking at a different question each evening:

  1. Pleasure: Isn’t Christianity repressive? 

  2. Proof: Isn’t faith irrational?

  3. Pain: Why is the world so broken?

  4. Peace: How can I find what I’m looking for? 

  5. Satisfaction: How can I find lasting fulfilment?  

  6. Hope: Is there a future for humanity? 

We didn’t know how well it would be received, but the feedback has been very positive. 


I found the salt course an interesting and enjoyable event to attend, and a very good place to have a discussion of beliefs and ideas in a friendly environment, where you can speak honestly about what you do or do not believe in. It's great that questions are encouraged and often answered, and you always go away from an event with new ideas and thoughts to think through.” – Jamie


I thoroughly enjoyed the the course as a whole and found it a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. I was fully engaged the whole way through and thought it was a great guide for my thought process. I made some fantastic friends and met some amazing people.” – Leisha


Date: Six Wednesday evenings, starting on the 30th January (and finishing on the 6th March). 
Time: 7:30–9.30pm
Location: Costa Coffee, The Cut, London, SE1 8LP (10 minutes walk from Waterloo station) 

Each week, we’ll have a meal together, hear a short talk on the subject and have a discussion in groups. Our aim is to create a low-pressure environment where anyone can explore their questions and doubts. 

Perhaps you’d like to come on the course yourself (or bring a friend). You can sign-up here. The course is designed for all sorts of secular Londoners, from those who are vaguely curious about life’s big questions to those who are skeptical towards the Christian faith. 

Feel free to email me on [email protected] if you have any questions. 

We look forward to seeing some of you there.
