October 2005

Alpha; is a 10-week course providing an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in our lives today. It is a practical introduction to the basics of Christianity with opportunity for debate and discussion. The style of Alpha is informal, friendly and non–pressured – a style which seems to be appreciated in our culture. There is a day retreat midway through the course, which focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit.

Alpha commenced on 21st September and runs for 10 Wednesdays.
