Alpha Course:

[Next course planned for Autumn 2022]

2022 started with the Omicron Covid virus affecting our plans!  We’ve carried on learning new ways of working, socialising, doing family and living.  We had a whole year without hugs except from those we live with.

Despite the vaccination roll out, we’ve also had to face the possibility of illness in a way we’ve not had to do before.  And some of us have lost very dear family members and friends to Covid-19.

We offered people the chance to join an online Alpha course run by St Christopher’s Church to meet with other people to discuss some of those big questions.

This is a course about the Christian faith and about whether Jesus, the Bible, and God provide any answers to those questions in uncertain times.

The Alpha course follows a set format of watching a short film and then talking together about what we think about the questions the film raises each week. 

Usually there would be a meal shared together, and some time for chatting about life in general as well, but we ran our Alpha course mostly online. 

Alpha is for everyone and anyone, whatever stage you are at in your faith experience: whether you once went to church and are looking to find a way in again or have never been to church but feel that there must be more to life than you’ve found yet.
