The ALPHA Course
What is it?
Alpha is a ten-week opportunity to explore the validity and relevance of the Christian faith for our lives today. It is a practical introduction to the basics of Christianity with loads of opportunity for debate and discussion. The style of Alpha is informal, friendly and non-pressured.
Alpha is enjoyed and appreciated as much by those who have never set foot in a church as it is by those who once attended and by the regular churchgoer. No matter what their background, whether investigating Christianity for the first time or revisiting their faith, participants get a lot out of an Alpha Course.
Each week people meet together for a meal, a talk on topics such as "Who is Jesus?", "Why Did Jesus Die?", "How Can I be Sure of My Faith?", and "Does God Still Heal Today?" , followed by small group interaction. There is a day or weekend retreat midway through the course, which focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit.

HE IS NOT HERE! HE IS RISEN!!
The season of Eastertide
The days and weeks after Jesus
rose from the grave were filled
with wonder and surprise for all
His followers. This was something
entirely NEW - A Man coming back
from the grave.
Jesus appeared to His followers
in all kinds of settings. In locked
rooms, on roads and mountaintops,
at the seaside making breakfast.
And he appeared to all manner of
people: frightened and disbelieving
though some were; all were actually
to some degree, they were all con-
vinced in the end that this NEW
THING had actually taken place
and changed things in their lives
and on Planet Earth forever!!
Come during Eastertide as we
explore ways in which people
we know and love have come to
know this Living Jesus, TODAY!
ALLELUIA !! HE IS RISEN!
HE IS RISEN, INDEED !!
