The Alpha Course
Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course begins January 27 and meets once per week on Sunday evenings @ 6pm for 10 weeks.
Each gathering begins with a meal - a chance to get to know others, then a short talk which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week. This is followed by a time of discussion in small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion and ask questions. People usually stay in the same small groups for the duration of the course so they can get to know each other, continue discussions and develop friendships. The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.
The talks each week cover the following topics, acting as a springboard for the small group discussions:
|Introduction Dinner:||Is there more to life than this?|
|Week 1:||Who is Jesus?|
|Week 2:||Why did Jesus die?|
|Week 3:||How can we have faith?|
|Week 4:||Why and how do I pray?|
|Week 5:||Why and how should I read the Bible?|
|Week 6:||How does God guide us?|
|Week 7:||How can I resist evil?|
|Week 8:||Why & how should we tell others?|
|Week 9:||Does God heal today?|
|Week 10:||What about the Church?|
