Alpha

The Alpha Course is known worldwide and has been completed by literally millions of people. It is a excellent non-threatening way to find out more about Christian faith. The course explains faith in a relaxed and friendly group environment. Each evening starts at 7.15pm with a light meal followed by a video and then there is plenty of time for questions and discussion. The evening finishes at 9.30pm. We will discuss, among many subjects; “Who was Jesus? What evidence is there that he ever existed? What was the point of the Cross? How can there be a God of love when there is so much suffering in the world? Isn’t the bible just out of date?” It is possible to ask any question and nothing will be considered too simple or even too hostile! For more details contact Jane Franchi here
