Alpha Course

Starting 17 January 2019

Our church has been on quite a journey in the last few years. We'd like to refresh ourselves to go forward into future projects, using our refurbished building and new facilities. 

We've decided to start that refreshing by running an Alpha Course for everyone in Church who can make it and everyone else in our area who can make it. 

Please come if you can. The dates are below. Every week the Alpha course will take place at 10.00 am (with drinks and snack) and again at 7.00 pm (with a meal). We hope that having the course running at two different times of the day will make it more accessible for more people.

Typically each session will begin with sharing refreshments together, followed by watching a talk together on screen, with a discussion afterwards.

Curious? 

Alpha is a back to basics discussion of what Christians believe and why. 

The ethos is that there are no questions off limits, no questions not to ask. Alpha has run in thousands of different churches, in workplaces, in prisons, in the military, in schools. Everywhere in fact where people might want answers to some of the questions below.

Alpha assumes absolutely no prior knowledge of Christian beliefs. It's suitable for people of no faith or of other faiths who are simply curious about Christianity, for people who are beginning a journey with Jesus, for people who have been coming to churches for years and would like to re-examine why they believe what they believe.

We've run lots of Alpha courses before, and perhaps you've been on one. But Alpha have produced lots of new material - which we will be using - so don't think the course isn't for you just because you've tried it already.

Interested? Shy? Need more information - or just a bit of encouragement?

Easy - get in touch with the office and we'll put you in touch with one of the team!
