ALPHA COURSE: For People Wanting to Explore God, Faith Questions and the Purpose of Life - Wednesdays 7.00pm to 9.30pm 8 weeks starting May 22nd
This course is for people wanting to explore God, faith questions and the meaning of life.
The Alpha Course is an 8-session practical exploration of the Christian faith and living. The course is designed primarily for non-churchgoers wanting to explore questions of faith and life. However, it can also be a valuable grounding for new Christians and a helpful refresher course for Christian people of any age.
Our next course starts on Wednesday May 22nd and runs for 8 weeks. There is no charge and anyone may attend. Contact our church office 357 9411 if you are interested.
