Try Alpha

Our next Alpha course will start on Monday 7th March in St Mary’s Church at 7pm. You may have heard how this Course has inspired many people, and now there is an opportunity for you to experience it yourself – or be part of the team that help host it.

Alpha will run for 12 weeks finishing on 30th May. There is an “away-day” on Saturday 30th April. All are welcome, and if you would simply like to support Alpha perhaps you could help with catering, or welcoming, or washing up, or marketing or making a donation. All these are ways of inspiring faith in others. Please contact Lou in the Office if you would like to attend Alpha or be part of the support team.

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that tackle some of life’s big questions and explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Who is Alpha for?

Alpha is for anyone who’s curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversation in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

What to expect

The course runs for 8 weeks with each session beginning with food and including a short thought-provoking talk followed by a discussion where you can share what you think with a small group of people. Come for as many of the 8 weeks as you want – everyone’s welcome and there’s no pressure, follow-up or charge.
