What is the Alpha Course?
We all have questions in life. These range from ‘What shall I wear today?’ or ‘What shall we eat tonight?’ through to life’s bigger questions like ‘Where is my life going?’ or ‘Could there be more to life than this?’
In this current pandemic, we wanted to create opportunities for people to ask questions. It may be that in this season you have begun to ask some of life’s big questions. ‘Why am I here?’, ‘Is there any real hope in the world?’, ‘Could there be a God, and if so, what is he like?’ or ‘Who is this Jesus person anyway?’
Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open, informal environment.
Who is it for?
Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. You are free to explore your questions in a friendly, open environment. No question is out of bounds and you can discuss as much or as little as you wish.
Each week we watch a short video and then have a time for discussion where you can share your thoughts and opinions.
do we cover?
We'll be exploring questions like, 'Who is Jesus?', 'Why did Jesus die?','How can I have faith?' and 'How and why should I read the Bible?'
We frequently run Alpha courses although these are currently online during this pandemic. If you would like further information on when the next Alpha Course is going be, then do get in touch and express interest!
