Next course starts 05 February 2014
Weekend away is 15 /16 March
Alpha is about getting to know Jesus Christ and about introducing Jesus Christ to people who do not know him – it’s about inviting those who do know something about Him to enter more deeply into that experience of faith. It is a course during which we come together, share a meal, watch a dvd and share questions.
Are you looking for answers to any of these questions?
- What is the point of life?
- What happens when we die?
- What relevance does Jesus have in my life today?
- Is God interested in me?
The Alpha course can answer them for you!
