Advice & Education

Alpha

Alpha is a 10 week course exploring the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Each session begins with a shared meal, followed by a 30 min video. The video talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation, which is why there is a time for discussion afterwards. This is a chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Our next Alpha course starts on Thurs 24th August. For more information contact Carole McMinn on 473-3259.
