Have you heard about Alpha but not attended yet? Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Each session includes a meal, a video, and small group discussion. This is the perfect opportunity to invite someone you know to this course which will enrich their faith life, allow them to develop a personal relationship with Jesus and perhaps bring someone back to church. Our next course begins in February 2018 - REGISTER HERE!
