Alpha Course

The Alpha Course is a non-threatening and enjoyable way to explore the basic beliefs of the Christian faith in a relaxed environment. Alpha provides an opportunity to discuss questions about God, Christianity and the meaning of life in an informal, friendly way while enjoying a meal together with others. Everyone is welcome!

Alpha logoThe Alpha course is open to anyone. No matter what you believe- whether you are a practising Christian, simply exploring or have no faith at all. No background knowledge or belief in Christianity is needed. Come and ask those difficult questions – no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

The 11 week course covers the following topics

  • Christianity: Boring, untrue or irrelevant?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why did Jesus die?
  • How can we have faith?
  • Why and how do I pray?
  • Why and how should I read the Bible?
  • How does God guide us?
  • How can I resist evil?
  • Why and how should I tell others?
  • Does God heal today?
  • What about the church?

 

There is also an additional Saturday session, in a different but nearby location where we think about Who is the Holy Spirit? What does the Holy Spirit do? How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?

Courses run according to demand – at least once, sometimes twice a year, with between twelve and twenty on each course. Our next course will run in April-June 2016.

Youth Alpha courses are run separately to provide teenagers the opportunity to ask their own questions.
