The Alpha Course is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith. Over about 10 weeks we look at issues such as: Who is Jesus? How and why should I pray? Does God heal today?
Alpha is run by every major Christian denomination and by churches of all traditions in countries throughout the world. Courses are held in churches, schools, prisons, places of work, pubs and homes; and millions of people have participated.
Each weekly meeting includes a meal, a talk on DVD, and a discussion in small groups. Everyone is welcome to attend and to share their views, whether you are a committed Christian, a follower of another religion, a convinced Atheist, or you simply want to find out more. It is an opportunity to think about a wide variety of issues in a relaxed environment
Our most recent Alpha was a joint course with our sister church of St John’s, Churt. Here are some of the things people said about it:
“wonderful food each week shared with old and new friends”
“enjoyed time to listen to others”
“less defensive about my beliefs”
“understanding that others have uncertainties too”
“it’s been a wonderful opportunity to meet local people and feel part of the church family”
