An Alpha course is based around a small group of about 12 people, hosted by one or two leaders, whose role is to facilitate and encourage discussion about the Christian faith.
Most are evening courses, typically lasting 2 hours. Whatever the course size, people tend to remainin the same small groups for the duration of the course so they can get to know each other, continue discussions and deepen friendships.The whole course usually lasts for 10 weeks, with a day away in the middle.
Each session begins with a meal or refreshments - a chance to get to know others in the small group. There is then a short talk or a DVD, which looks at a different aspect of the Christian faith each week.This is followed by a time of discussion in the small groups, where everyone is welcome to contribute their opinion, ask questions and discuss with the rest of the group.
The emphasis is upon exploration and discovery in a relaxed and informal environment.
There is no charge for attending the Alpha course, although course members will be asked for a small contribution towards the cost of the food.
The Alpha Course begins with a launch party to give people an introduction to the course before they sign up. Please contact the Parish Office if you are interested.
