Explore life, meaning and purpose at Alpha
Do you want to explore the Christian faith? An Alpha Course is the perfect place to learn and to find answers to some of the biggest questions about God and our existence.
When is it?
The next Alpha Course starts this autumn on Wednesday 21st September!
Join us in person here at the building on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm when we begin with the taster session: 'Is there more to life than this?'. The course then continues on Wednesday evenings from 5th October through to the 30th November, with the Holy Spirit weekend being on the 12th & 13th November.
what is it?
The Alpha Course is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed environment. During the 10 week course questions are not only allowed, they are actively encouraged. No question is too simple or too difficult! Topics such as “Who is Jesus?”, “How to read the Bible” and “Why and how to pray” allow participants to start understanding what it means to follow Jesus for themselves.
You can find out more at www.alpha.org.
Who is it for?
The Alpha Course is for anyone who has questions about God, Jesus or the Christian faith. You can have a church background, be a new Christian or have never been to church before. If you are wondering what faith is all about Alpha is a great place to start finding out, with others who are also looking for answers.
Usually when an Alpha Courses take place in different churches or venues, the sessions start with a meal or refreshments. We find it's a great way to help give course participants a chance to get to know each other.
You will then watch a film produced by the Alpha team, and shot all over the world, with each week's film discussing a specific topic. After the film there is an opportunity for informal discussion and to ask any questions you have.
Part way through the course there is a special day which covers the topics about the Holy Spirit. This is usually held during the day on a Saturday, at the church building.
The Alpha Course is completely free to join. A suggested donation of £3 for the meal is welcomed but not essential.
