During Lent, a time of reflection, repentance, and preparation for the joy of Easter, we are offering the Alpha Course, a six-week exploration of the Christian faith, designed for those who are inquiring about the faith, new to the faith, or returning after some time away.
What is the Alpha Course?
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each session includes a thought-provoking talk and an open discussion where questions are not only welcomed but encouraged. It's a safe and welcoming space where people can explore the Christian faith in a relaxed and non-judgmental environment.
Over 6 weeks, we’ll cover the following topics:
Is there more to life than this?
Who is Jesus?
Why did Jesus die?
How can I have faith?
Why and how do I pray?
Why and how should I read the bible?
Who is Alpha for?
If you are:
Wondering about the meaning of life,
Curious about Christianity,
New to the faith and seeking a solid foundation,
Returning to the faith after some time away,
... then Alpha is for you!
When and Where?
The Alpha Course will take place every Sunday evening during Lent, starting on 18th Feb, from 4:30pm. We will gather at St James’ Church and each session will include a ploughman’s supper. The exception is 24th March (Palm Sunday) when we will meet for Alpha at 1pm due to our Palm Sunday service.
How do I Join?
Simply sign up by visiting our website or by contacting the Rector, Jake (firstname.lastname@example.org). Do feel free to invite friends, family, or colleagues who may be interested in exploring the Christian faith. Everyone is welcome, and no question is too big or too small.
May this Lenten season be a time of spiritual growth, connection, and discovery.
