Alpha

What is it?

The internationally-acclaimed Alpha course is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life. It's a chance to explore what Christians believe in a relaxed, informal, friendly and non-threatening way.

How long does it run for?

We will most likely be meeting on Friday evenings; as soon as we have sufficient numbers to run the course, we'll let you know,

Feel free to pop along for just the first one or two to try it out if you wish. We won't hassle you if you decide it's not your thing. There is also the option of going on a day or weekend to find out about the Holy Spirit.

What happens?

In the evening course, things kick off at 7pm with a cooked meal, where the conversation revolves around many things, but not Christianity! Between 7:45pm and 8:30pm we watch a DVD - a different one each week, on topics such as "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?" and "Does God heal today?" We then break for coffee, and discuss what was said in the DVD. No question is too stupid to ask - and it's OK to disagree with what was said! The evening finishes at 9:30 pm prompt, but feel free to linger over a coffee!

How much does it cost?

There is no set charge, although you may wish to make a contribution towards the food. There may be a charge for the Holy Spirit event, but please ask if this might be a problem for you.

Sounds great - how can I find out more?

Alpha by Correspondence

If you feel that you cannot commit to the full course then we are happy to offer ‘Alpha by Correspondence’, where we will send you a link to Alpha videos to watch at home and will take questions by email. This will involve meeting up at a time of your convenience at the start and then a couple more times during the course. You then work through in your time at your own pace.

Email alpha@freshwaterscf.org.uk, or telephone Pastor Ron Kingsmill's work telephone number, 01279 882340, to find out more!
